License Plate: Show Your Lobo Pride!

If your vehicle is registered in New Mexico, you may apply for a UNM license plate. The annual fee is $37 initially and upon each regular registration renewal. Only one plate per qualified person/owner will be issued.

Any state-supported higher educational institution in New Mexico may request that the division issue a special collegiate registration plate for that institution. The plate's color and design are determined by the division in consultation with the institution. Collegiate plates are currently available for:

  • Eastern Mexico University
  • New Mexico State
  • New Mexico Tech
  • New Mexico Military Institute
  • University of New Mexico
  • Western New Mexico University
  • New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology

$25.00 of the fee collected for each special collegiate registration plate is distributed to the higher educational institution for which the registration plate is issued.
