New WV license plates coming

Posted: Updated:
You will soon see a change in license plates in West Virginia.  It is a move that will save the state some money.
     
The Division of Motor Vehicles says it will switch from embossed plates to plates that are digitally printed with the registration number.

A spokesperson says the new plates are easier to recognize and will cost about $600,000 dollars less to produce.

They are also more environmentally friendly because they do not need to be painted.

Plates are made by West Virginia Correctional Industries at Mount Olive Prison.
