Be sure to get Your Smith Mountain Lake ‘Closer Than You Think!’ Virginia license plate. We are excited about the program and equally anxious to meet the criteria needed. Below is a condensed list of matters to be completed before final approval by the state of Virginia:
- The Chamber must collect 350 prepaid applications by January 1, 2011.
- Bill submitted for approval by the General Assembly.
- The License plate design must be approved and processed by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
- Once the bill is approved by the General Assembly, license plate production will begin. It will take approximately 8 months for completion and distribution.
While the procedure is involved and lengthy, we are confident that the Smith Mountain Lake License plate project will move forward in due process.
And YOU can help us achieve the first requirement (listed above) by submitting a prepaid application! If you’re interested, here’s what you need to do:
Complete the DMV/SML Chamber application (Click Here to Download) and return it with a check (no cash, please) made out to “SMLRCC” in the amount of $10. Bring by or mail your application and check to the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce, 16430 Booker T. Washington Highway, Moneta, VA 24121 to be added to the list of 350. Once we receive 350 prepaid applications, the other requirements can be achieved and the state will begin production and distribution of the Smith Mountain Lake license plates. They require about 8 months in production. We are striving for a completion by Fall 2011. If we do not collect 350 prepaid applications by the deadline, you will receive a refund.
