The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles has announce the release of a new standard issue Nevada license plate, the “Home Means Nevada” plate.

Motorists can now request the “Home Means Nevada” plate when registering a vehicle or ordering a new plate.

The plate was designed to reflect the unique diversity of the Silver State, from the dry desert landscape of Red Rock Canyon in Clark County, to the rich, green forest of Lake Tahoe and the stunning majesty of the Ruby Mountains. The base color of the plate symbolizes the iconic clear blue Nevada sky and wide open spaces Nevada is known for worldwide.

With more than 170 mountain summits, Nevada is the most mountainous state in the contiguous United States.

The “Home Means Nevada” plate can fit up to 7 characters, the same as the Nevada Sunset design standard plate, which has been in use since 2001.

Personalized plates on the “Home Means Nevada” design will be available beginning early 2017.

The plate will be manufactured in Carson City and features black embossed characters. Soon, the plate will also be produced using a new high definition material, increasing reflectivity as well as being a more environmentally-friendly plate to produce.  

The plate will be available for those who request it in office until the remaining supply of Nevada Sunset plates is depleted. Reissue plates will also be sent in the current Sunset design in order to reduce cost and waste of inventory.
