Update as of June 28, 2017: We have exciting news from the Department of Revenue! The Colorado Girl Scout license plate will never be retired! Earlier this year, the Department of Revenue informed GSCO if 3,000 people had not registered for the plate by July 1, 2018, it would be retired. However, they have since decided that the Colorado Girl Scout license plate will remain whether or not 3,000 people register for it by July 2018. Learn more.
Time may be running out to get your Colorado Girl Scout license plates! According to the Department of Revenue, 3,000 people must register for the plate by July 1, 2018 or it will be retired. At last check, less than 300 Colorado Girl Scout license plates had been issued. That means if more than 2,700 people don’t register for this special plate before July of 2018, it will become extinct.
The cost is $50 above the regular license plate fees and the plate can be registered to any type of vehicle, including motorcycles. Put them on your motorhome, scooter, new car, or vintage classic. Even Dad’s Plumbing Co. can put Girl Scout plates on his entire fleet of vehicles! Girl Scout plates can be put on a currently registered vehicle after a transfer. Also, Girl Scout plates can be transferred from one vehicle to another under the same ownership.
