Want A Low Number Mass License Plate?
Several are available this summer. Find out how they will be distributed.
You've seen them as you've driven around Woburn and watched them fly by with envy. They're license plates with low numbers. They look so cool.
And now you can try to get one for yourself.
The Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) Division is accepting applications for the 2012 Low Number License Plate Lottery until Aug. 13.
“The Registry expects to receive thousands of applications for this year’s annual lottery,” said Registrar of Motor Vehicles Rachel Kaprielian. “The passion for low number plates we see from our customers and lottery entrants makes this a fun tradition.”
Applicants are vying for 124 of "the most sought after" Mass plates, said Kaprielian—including plate numbers 73, 295, 449, 493, 7755, and 1Z.
“Registrar Kaprielian works tirelessly to remind customers of the transactions available at the RMV’s online branch,” said Mass Department of Transportation Secretary and CEO Richard A. Davey. “I encourage customers to take this opportunity to log onto the website, learn about the transactions that can be performed online and to complete a lottery application.”
In addition to the application being available at mass.gov/RMV, customers may visit any branch to pick up an application. Postcard entries will not be accepted.
All entries must be mailed and postmarked by August 13, 2012.
If winners do not register the new plate before the end of the year, it will automatically be forfeited. Those plates then revert to an alternate winner, who will be chosen in the fall lottery.
The drawing will be held in September, before Sept. 15, but the exact time and date has not yet been determined.
