Santa Grants Holiday Wish

Winner of Second 4-Digit Centennial Plate Giveaway Selected


Georgetown — Rosa Muniz of Seaford received an early holiday gift when she answered a phone call from Jennifer Cohan, Director of the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) on Tuesday, December 9, 2008. Ms. Muniz is the second winner of a 4-digit Centennial license plate, receiving license plate #8215 in the limited “black and gold” style.

Ms. Muniz entered the drawing while at the Georgetown DMV in November. While there, she had a brief visit with Santa, who was getting his own Centennial license plate inscribed with “SANTA”. Apparently, Ms. Muniz made it on Santa’s list and received her gift early.

At just $100 each, the Centennial Plate is a great gift for the holidays for a loved one or for yourself, and perfect for someone who already has everything. Request a gift certificate suitable for wrapping for orders placed through December 15. Order with a credit card online at or visit any DMV office or call (302) 744-2503 for more information.

The Centennial License plate promotion is a celebration of 100 years since the first state-issued license plate was produced in 1909. By honoring the first state-issued plates the DMV is giving the public the opportunity to own a piece of Delaware history. This offering allows license plate enthusiasts to purchase something of value now that will increase in value over time. Delaware is the first state ever to produce a commemorative license plate of this kind. Proceeds from the plate sales will be used to supplement the Transportation Trust Fund and enhance DMV customer service via online services and technology enhancements.

The sales of the popular Centennial License Plate recently got a special boost with the addition of a new online credit card purchasing option at The Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) added the customer friendly alternative to its growing list of web-based services to allow a simpler and faster option for ordering the $100 “must-have” vehicle accessory.

Centennial Plates may be displayed on all vehicles except motorcycles, mopeds, and IRP apportioned vehicles. Centennial Plate numbering will match the number currently assigned to the registered vehicle. All numerical plates and those with prefixes PC, RV, FT, C, CL, T, and D, as well as all vanity plates are permitted.

The next drawing for a 4-digit Centennial Plate will be in early 2009.
