It’s one-time investment
You’ll pay a one-time surcharge of $100 per set of plates when you first buy them, in addition to the DMV’s standard $24 plate fee and regular registration fee. However, Oregon’s Pacific Wonderland license plates are unique because unlike other special plates, you won’t be charged any additional plate fees when you renew your registration. And remember, the revenue generated from your purchase of the new Pacific Wonderland plates goes a long way toward preserving Oregon’s rich historical heritage. Thank you for buying Pacific Wonderland license plates.
It’s a modern classic!
Oregon schoolchildren created the original Pacific Wonderland license plate in honor of Oregon’s 100th birthday. The license plate features the colors of the state flag: a blue background with the words Pacific Wonderland below the letters and numbers in a rich golden yellow. Oregon issued the original Pacific Wonderland plate for just five years, between 1959 and 1964. Today’s new version recreates the original and includes the popular Oregon 150 logo in honor of Oregon’s 150th birthday.
