The Specialty License Plate Program
When you purchase specialty license plates in Tennessee, a portion of the proceeds support the arts in our state. The Specialty License Plate Program was created in the 1980s to provide a dedicated revenue source for arts and cultural activities in the state of Tennessee.
By purchasing a specialty license plate, you are helping to make Tennessee a place where the arts thrive. The proceeds from your purchase are supporting some of the state’s most beloved museums and arts organizations, including Cheekwood.
There has never been a better –or more beautiful- opportunity for those who love art to “back the arts” than with a specialty Tennessee license plate! You can purchase the plate from your local County Clerk’s office at any time – your rates will be prorated.
Give the gift that gives back with the Tennessee “Gift-A-Tag” Program! Visit the State of Tennessee’s Gift Center to find out how to purchase a voucher for a Tennessee specialty license plate and give the gift that’s sure to delight the art lovers in your life!
