Smokey Bear license plates available in August | News – The News Guard

The Keep Oregon Green Association Smokey Bear vehicle license plate will be available for Oregon passenger vehicles starting Aug. 1.

The plate is only for passenger vehicles titled and registered in Oregon. DMV cannot accept or process applications received before Aug. 1.

In addition to regular title, registration and plate manufacturing fees, the Smokey Bear plate has a $40 surcharge due when you first order the plate and at each registration renewal. The surcharge is the same amount for four-year or two-year registration periods.

Customers who purchased a prepaid voucher may submit that with their application in lieu of the surcharge. The voucher may only be used once. The Keep Oregon Green Association was required to sell at least 3,000 vouchers before DMV could start implementation of the Smokey Bear license plate. Surcharge funds will go to the Keep Oregon Green Association. For more information on the association, visit keeporegongreen.org.

Custom (vanity) and Amateur Radio Operator (HAM radio) versions will be available on the Smokey Bear plate. DMV cannot reserve specific number-letter configurations for license plates. Also, DMV does not sell “sample” versions of license plates.

People can apply for the plates by mail, at DMV field offices, online or through licensed vehicle dealers when they purchase a car. Customers cannot apply for a Smokey Bear plate online if they are submitting a pre-paid voucher. Customers cannot replace vehicle plates through DEQ emissions testing stations (emissions tests are required only in parts of the Portland and Medford metropolitan areas).

The cost of a set of plates depends upon when and how a vehicle owner applies for a new set. Here are two common scenarios:
