Went to DMV today to get trailer plate renewal, which for this year I could get a permanent. I chose permanent plate.

WOW, I got handed a new plate and they are very nice. Can someone please help me out and show a pic, as I'm not capable?

It's a new Bicentennial(1821-2021). Background is white reflective with the Seal of Missouri done in what looks like a tattoo outline in center. Dark Blue lettering/numbers, with red solid upper border with 4 inner wavey lines with bottom of plate having blue solid outer edging with 4 inner wavey lines.

Just to left of center is a 3-D looking hologram ribbon that runs from top to bottom of plate and can only be seen when looking at certain angles.

Wonder what new vehicle/motorcycle plates will look like if my trailer plate looks this nice? Unless it's for only certain purchases.

All of our work vehicles have gotten these new plates.

Yeah, I was just on a site about Missouri's plates and they said if you renewed or got new registration before Oct 15 then you got the old style plates, but anyone registering after Oct 15 is getting the new plates.

I hadn't heard or seen anyone with these new plates until I got one today.

I'm not saying they aren't nice but it sure seems like a waste of money to change plates as often as we have.

I would like to see the trailer plates made the same size as motorcycle plates.

It's not like you get new plates every year or they're mailing these to people and telling them to throw away their blue plates. They just replace the plates every 5-6 yrs when you come due. My plates look like hell after 3-4 yrs and I usually have to request new ones. If memory serves, they charge me for new ones anyway.....under $10.

I dont really see how changing the design on something going forward is a huge expense. Instead of making blue ones with the bird on them, now they're white. Youll get them eventually. BFD.

I read that these new plates cost the state $17 million.

I read that here at STLToday.com.

Yeah, but they're charging people $3.xx a set to recoup that. Unless you don't drive a vehicle, plates need to be replaced after that many years anyway. My blue plates are all bubbled up from rust under the paint.

I have 220 of those to change by the end of the year

That would be nice. There wouldn't be so many plates bent up, from being too close to the ground on small trailers.
