North Carolina License Plates

The state of North Carolina first issued license plates in 1913. From 1913 through 1916, North Carolina plates were porcelain and were also dated with the year of validity with the date: EXPIRES JUNE 30, 1914 (were printed on 1914 and 1915 license plates). From 1918, embossed steel license plates were issued.

Beginning in 1954, the slogan: DRIVE SAFELY was embossed on all North Carolina license plates until 1963, with the exception of 1955. The slogan: FIRST IN FREEDOM appeared in 1975, and this plate base was valid until 1984. The first graphics appeared on North Carolina license plates in 1981 with the FIRST IN FLIGHT license plate. North Carolina first introduced retro-reflective license plates in 1969 and like all the other states this is still the norm. The graphic on 1981 North Carolina license plates showed the Wright Brother’s bi-plane named THE KITTY HAWK. In 1931, a small box containing the number appeared on North Carolina license plates and no explanation of this number was ever given.

The mild weather in North Carolina and a state which takes pride in its history and heritage makes it a haven for classic car collectors.

Tom - Kalamazoo. Michigan

After the purchase of my Alpina, I noticed that the car was different from all her BMW E38 siblings in North America by having the European trunk lid on it, preventing me from using a US format license plate.I decided, upon reviewing Licenseplates.tv's reputation to use their product on my car and it is absolutely gorgeous. Very clear print on the blue bar, great reflective pain and nicely done lettering.I am definitely most satisfied with my purchase and recommend Licenseplates.tv to anyone wanting a authentically reproduced quality product!

I just got my 4th plate from you today and I continue to be amazed by the quality of the product. Right down to the proper size and no-hole orientation of the 55 NY plate (I only learned that by going back and visiting the site). Thanks so much. You've helped to make several old cars of mine, my brother's and my best friend even more period-authentic. Great product and well worth the expense for something done with such a high level of quality! I guess that might be silly, since the originals were made by state prisoners ... but that's another story!!!
