Pre-sale for a Big Rock Blue Marlin NC License Plate is now available! To apply for a Big Rock Specialty Plate you must:

1. Complete the MVR-27PP-A form and return it to the Big Rock Office

2. Provide payment in the amount of $30.00 (cash or check only)

 $20.00 of this fee will be retained by the Big Rock to support Charities and North Carolina DMV will retain $10.00. Personalized plates with a combination of up to 4 letter or numbers are available for an additional $30.00. All proceeds from personalized plates are retained by DMV.


The Big Rock has to sell at least 500 plates before the North Carolina General Assembly can approve the plate in the next legislative session in early 2017. After approval, the plates will start being issued later in 2017. If we DO NOT sell the minimum of 500 plates, then all of the money will be refunded.

For an additional $30.00 you can have a personalized plate with up to 4 letters or combination of letters and numbers. You DO NOT have to use 4 letters, you can use 1, 2 or 3 letters. Example: BR.... B.... BEK. The numbers 0001 thru 9999 cannot be used for a personalized plate. Form MVR-27-PP-A provides a space for your 1st and 2nd choice for a personalized plate.
