Tennessee’s next standard license plate has finally been unveiled after a statewide vote. The new plate won with 42% of the vote after more than 300,000 Tennesseans cast their ballot.

Governor Bill Lee said the winning design represents the state’s unique Grand Divisions – West, Middle, East.

Tennessee drivers will be able to order their new plate online or in-person starting January 3, 2022. The Governor’s office expects up to 100,000 plates to be produced each week as residents update their tags. The redesign follows a state statute that requires an update every eight years if funds are approved by the General Assembly. The statute also lets Tennesseans select an “In God We Trust” option.
