Sign up for Rhode Island’s specialty “osprey” license plate!
More than 2,000 Rhode Islanders are sporting the latest specialty plate in support of environmental education. Half of the $63.50 fee goes to Save The Bay and the Audubon Society of Rhode Island to fund environmental education programs. You’ll look smart and, more importantly, you’ll take pride in helping connect kids with the Bay and its watershed.

Contact Leslie at firstname.lastname@example.org or 401-272-3540 with your name and mailing address to request a License Plate Order Packet. Please note that plate batches are submitted to the DMV on the 15th of every month. Allow approximately 4-6 weeks for processing after the order is submitted to the DMV.
Can I keep my “vanity” plate numbers/letters? Yes, but only if your plate has five digits or fewer. Simply enter your current plate number/letters on the registration form and they will be applied to the new plate.
Is my vehicle eligible for an Environmental Plate?
If you can say YES to all of the following, then you are eligible for an Environmental Education license plate:
- My vehicle is registered in Rhode Island
- My vehicle has five digits or fewer*
- My vehicle is a regular passenger vehicle**
*If you have a six-digit plate, you may get a five-digit plate from the DMV. Before submitting the Environmental Plate Order Form, go to the Pawtucket DMV with your six-digit plates, registration and proof of insurance. For a fee, the DMV will issue you a five-digit, numeric license plate.
**Sadly, commercial, combo and other specialty plates cannot have the Environmental Plate. (Please note: this does not include vanity plates – those are perfectly eligible as long as they have five or fewer digits). If you are not sure what type of registration you have, look at your registration card.
