Special License Plate Program

Tennesseans for the Arts Specialty License Plate Program

Paramount Bristol is supported in part by Tennesseans for the Arts. Funding is generated through the sale of specialty license plates. Why don’t you consider getting an arts plate for your ride and support the arts in Tennessee? Please visit the Tennessee Arts Commission license site to see the available plates.

Most of these plates are available at your local county clerk’s office. However, you may want to call and check before traveling to the clerk’s office. A Specialty License Plate costs $35 each year. You can exchange your current license plate for a Specialty License Plate anytime, the county clerk will prorate your fees. Thank you for supporting the arts in your community!
