You may have been driving along on I40 recently and noticed billboards advertising Dolly’s specialty plate.

Did you know that approximately 80% of the Tennessee Arts Commission grants come from the sale of specialty license plates? A portion of many of the specialty plates and personalized plates benefit the arts. When you get your license plate renewal postcard in the mail, please consider getting a specialty plate or, better yet, a personalized specialty plate when renewing your license plate. Select a specialty plate to promote a cause close to your heart, or choose one to match the color of your vehicle.
