Reserve Your Official DMV NC Fire Officer License Plate

Order Now for Production in 2020

The NCAFC Board has been working with the NCDMV and a graphic artist over the past months to finalize the new Official DMV NC Fire Officer License Plate. To finalize this process, the NCAFC will need to obtain at least 500 paid applications by February 1, 2020 to be approved for the production of the fire officer tags.

The NC Fire Officer Tags will be available in 2020, assuming we reach our target of 500 applications. When this application process has been completed, the tags will be produced. The NCAFC Board hopes that all fire officers will take advantage of this opportunity to show their pride in the fire service and their support for the NCAFC. With your purchase of the tag and your annual tag renewal, the NCAFC will receive a small portion of the fees which will be used to improve our programs and benefits.

Officers who reserve a tag will be the first to receive the tags as soon as they are produced by the NCDMV. All other officers will be able to purchase the tag once it is added to the DMV list in 2020.

COST:  $30 for Auto-Numbered Tag / $60 for Personalized Plate (Online Payment with Credit Card Only). The NC Fire Officer License Plate covers basic weighted vehicles up to 26,000 pounds.
