California Gets New Digital License Plates Law, Is Washington State up Next?
California Passes A New Digital License Plates Law AB 984
Will Washington State Be The Next State To Allow Digital License Plates?
New technology can change everything and digital license plates are here and some states are already allowing them.
According to an article from cbsnews.com, California is the latest state to allow digital license plates. Arizona and Michigan already allow them. As the new plates become a reality, is Washington State next to allow them?
The Motor Vehicle Digital Number Plates Bill (AB 984), passed earlier this month, allows California vehicle owners to use the digital plates, made exclusively by California company Reviver.
Digital license plates work through an app that offers registration renewal, vehicle location services, and security features according to the CBS article.
One of the cool features of the plates is that you can update or create a banner message on the plate.
Digital plates could be the future for some and Reviver.com offers them on its websites. There is a cost - about $19.95 per month, or about $960 for four years. Installation fees are $99 according to the Reviver.com website.
Three states right now allow digital license plates but as progressive as Oregon and Washington have been in the past, it wouldn't surprise me if we don't see digital license plates in the future on some Pacific Northwest rides in the future.
