How do I get a Missouri License Plate?

WHO QUALIFIES

If you are a Missouri resident who owns or leases a passenger vehicle, truck, RV or motorcycle registered in Missouri, you qualify for a Gorilla License Plate. The educational license plate program provides TWO plates per vehicle.

EFFECTIVE DATE & RENEWAL

The gorilla license plate is valid for one year based on an annual renewal of the plate through a $30 gift to PSU and a $15 fee to the state.  To renew for two years, it would be a $60 gift to PSU and a $30 fee to the state see below.*

*If your vehicle was manufactured in an odd year and you are getting your plate in an odd year then you may renew for two years; but if your vehicle was manufactured in an odd year and you are getting your plate in an even year then you may only renew for one year. If your vehicle was manufactured in an even year and you are getting your plate in an even year then you may renew for two years; but if your vehicle was manufactured in an even year and you are getting your plate in an odd year then you many only renew for one year.
