EMS License Plate Program Information
The Emergency Medical Services Authority has developed a specialty license plate to honor and recognize EMS professionals in California. Creating a specialty plate will support and recognize healthcare professionals who work in the emergency setting. These plates will also increase the visibility of EMS in California.
The standard EMS License Plate will be $50 initially and $40 for renewals. Personalized plates (new or conversions) are $90 with a $70 annual renewal fee. These funds may be used in any of the following areas: public information and prevention, recognition program, an EMS memorial fund, AED programs, a trauma registry and prevention program, charitable programs or programs to enhance EMT applicants statewide.
EMSA must collect 7,500 pre-paid applications before the plate is produced and distributed to applicants. This process could take as long as a year, which could delay applicants receiving their plates. If EMSA cannot collect 7,500 applications a full refund will be given to the applicant. A full description of the program is available here.
We now have a plate that has been given clearance by DMV and CHP. You may order your plate by filling out the application form and sending it along with the appropriate payment to the address shown on the application form.
