Terms and Conditions

PRE-SALE SPECIFIC TERMS AND CONDITIONS:

In order to purchase a Martha’s Vineyard specialty license plate, the purchaser must meet the following criteria:

  1. The license plate must be placed on a Massachusetts registered private passenger vehicle. Leased vehicles are also acceptable; commercial vehicles and motorcycles are not acceptable.
  2. The bidder must be the registered owner of the vehicle to which the license plate will be assigned. If the bidder plans to gift the plate to another individual, they must make note of this to the MV License Plate Committee and the individual receiving the plate must meet all of these outlined criteria.
  3. The vehicle registration to which the license plate will be assigned must be in active and in good standing. The bidder will be required to provide the following information about the person receiving the plate upon checkout: first name, last name, street address, phone number, e-mail address, driver’s license number, and the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (MA RMV) full-service branch to which the license plate will be delivered.

Payment must be received in full in order for the license plate to be delivered to the identified MA RMV branch and picked up by the winner bidder.

The plate sale is tax-deductible to the purchaser, less a small amount reflecting the cost for the Commonwealth to produce the license plate ($12). In addition to the winning bid amount, the winning bidder will pay a $40 special license plate fee, plus $20 license plate swap fee, plus any applicable registration fees at time of pickup.

The license plates will be available for pickup at the bidder’s requested MA RMV branch approximately 60-90 days after the close of the Pre-sale. The Pre-sale closes August 17, 2018.

Martha’s Vineyard Community Services has sold over 2,400 license plates to date and must sell 3,000 license plates by August of 2021. Once the agency has exceeded 3,000 registered Martha’s Vineyard Plates, the program will continue in to the future, unless modified or ceased by the state.

All proceeds benefit Martha’s Vineyard Community Services, a 501 (c)3 registered nonprofit. 20% of annual proceeds from the Martha’s Vineyard Specialty license plate are designated to the Martha’s Vineyard Community Services Driving the Future Fund, a collaborative effort between Martha’s Vineyard Community Services and the Permanent Endowment for Martha’s Vineyard. Grants from this fund will be used to support education and health and human services for youth and seniors on Martha’s Vineyard.
