SC Play Tennis License Plates Available

South Carolina finally has a license plate for tennis players and fans! The $30 fee to purchase the Play Tennis! license plate goes to the South Carolina Tennis Patrons Foundation, a charity organization providing grants to kids-at-risk programs, need-based grants to junior players, and academic scholarships. The Foundation also administers the South Carolina Tennis Hall of Fame, located in Belton SC.  The easiest way to obtain the plate is to do it online.


Go to www.scdmvonline.com and click on "Order License Plates Online" that appears just above the displayed license plate. On the next page, in the box on the right under "Vehicle Services", click on "Exchange a Plate for a New Plate Design". With your current registration card in front of you, fill out the required information. Note: the vehicle number requested is not your VIN number! The number required is the one that appears at the top right on your registration card. You will be asked what plate you are applying for. Choose the Play Tennis! plate that appears in the gallery of specialty plates. Fees that are owed will be shown. Pay with a credit card. That should do it! An alternative path is to find the plate in the DMV's gallery of specialty plates and click where it says "buy this plate". 


The old-fashioned way to obtain the plate is to download the DMV form MV-95 from the DMV website, fill it out and send it in. The Play Tennis! plate is not yet listed on this form, but the fee for the plate is $30 in addition to any registration fees that may be due.The DMV will mail you the plate with a new registration and stickers. If you have any problems or questions, the DMV encourages you to call their help line at 803-896-5000.
