DMV: Volunteer Firefighter Registrations

Volunteer Firefighters

Holiday Closing:  On Wednesday, July 4, 2018, DMV offices will be closed for the Independence Day holiday.  Offices will reopen on Thursday, July 5, 2018, at 9:15 a.m.

Volunteer Firefighters who currently have Volunteer Firefighter plates on their vehicle are required to substantiate that they are still active volunteers. Upon renewal of the registration the firefighter must:

  • Provide a photocopy of their Blue flashing light permit issued for this purpose
  • Submit a letter from the Fire Chief attesting to their current status.

If the registrant is no longer a volunteer firefighter the registration of the vehicle must be changed to a standard type registration at renewal time. New Volunteer Firefighter plates are no longer issued.
