    After just talking with a co-worker I was told that in CT, if you get 200 willing people, you can make your own vanity plate. Maybe this could be in the future for CCDL...He and some people did this to get Penn State Plates in CT...I guess there is some approval process to make sure its a Legitimate cause/organization..

The logo prototype design, which can be no larger than 2" wide and 3 1/2 high, must be submitted to the Department of Motor Vehicles. The Commissioner or his agent has final approval on all plate logo designs.
    • An organization liaison must be appointed by each organization. This individual will be responsible for maintaining all communications with the department as well as:
      - submitting the logo design to DMV for approval.
      - certifying and authenticating (by signature) each member's application.
    • The organization liaison must submit an application on behalf of the organization guaranteeing an order of at least 400 special number plates.

    Thanks!!!!

    I am on a lot of gun forums and am changing my avatar on all of them to the CCDL Logo.

    On the forums that allow for a signature line, I am also adding

    I think that everybody should do the same. It is a great way to promote the organization and spread the word.

    Carry On!

    It was great Idea!!! except we are actually registered as "not for profit" I really dont understand the difference between that and "non profit", but our registered agent does.
    400 plates is a big number.

    May want to reconsider license plates after reading this. The state is now raiding charitable funds. When does the insanity end?http://www.norwichbulletin.com/archi...edicated-funds

    140,000 Long Island Sound Plates and over 150,000 Permits to Carry Pistols and Revovers.

    Doubling the Permit to Carry Fees?

    Everyone with a Long Island Plate should return the plate to DMV and ask for a refund.

    Never trust the state to care for "donations" to a worthy cause.

    Better the donations were made to a ligitimate non profit.

    If it was a private organization that did this there would be hell to pay from the Attorney General.

    But as of Oct. 1, the money consumers pay for the specialty plates will no longer be used for its intended purpose. Beginning next month, those fees, as well as feesfor specialty license plates promoting Greenways and Wildlife Conservation, will be diverted into the state’s general treasury.

    I know a few Veterans that are up in arms about this.(no pun intended) They can't get a direct answer if this also applies to Veteran plates. They article implies it will bethe "specialty plates" If anyone can find out please post.

    Sounds like we need to get some license plate frames made up with what we want to say on them and keep the states money grubbing fingers out of it.

    I would love to see the person involved with approving the logo for the liscense plate's face when they see the logo from the CCDL with a big gun in the middle of it! :PThat would be priceless.

    I agree with the rest. Why pay the state to show your pride in an organization?

    Maybe just some nice vinyl sickers for the vehicle could show support if you wanted to. CCDL could sell them themselves and use the money to further promote.

    I would stay away from license plate frames. In some states it is an infraction to have ANYTHING covering the license plate, including only the outside edge of the plate.

    It doesn't matter much within CT, but it would be better for our traveling members if we offered a bumper sticker or maybe a window cling. They're probably cheaper anyway.

    I have been looking into bumper stickers and hats. We can discuss the costs at the next meeting.
