Thank you for showing interest in the Gold Star Family Plate.

This plate serves as a memorial for Connecticut service members who were killed in the line of duty.  This plate is available to their immediate family members.  Immediate family consists of spouse, mother, father, brother, sister, child, grandmother or grandfather.

 

To order these plates, the vehicle must be currently registered in Connecticut. Applications for vehicles registered out-of-state or with a temporary registration will not be accepted.  Also, if your registration is due to expire within the next 45 days, you must renew your registration before applying for these plates.

You may only acquire the same registration type as currently on your vehicle. For instance, if you currently have combination plates on your vehicle, you can only receive combination plates - you cannot request combination plates if your vehicle is currently registered with passenger plates.
