DOL letter about personalized plates sent by mistake​

A letter sent by the state Department of Licensing to some Kitsap County residents with personalized license plates was a mistake.

The Washington State Department of Licensing letter warns that personalized plates transferred to another vehicle will be canceled. If the letter is dated August 4, 2021, recipients can ignore it. 

“Those plates are not being canceled,” said Paul Andrews, Kitsap County Auditor. “We understand the Department of Licensing is reviewing how this mistake happened.”

The Department of Licensing sent the letter to more than 40,000 people throughout the state, including Kitsap County.
