Who can purchase a specialty licence plate?

Specialty licence plates can be purchased for passenger cars, motorcycles, mopeds, non-commercial trucks, farm trucks and trailers. Specialty licence plates cannot be purchased for commercial vehicles, unless the vehicle is registered as a regulated passenger vehicle.

A specialty licence plate can only be purchased by a Manitoba Public Insurance customer who has one or more qualifying vehicles registered and/or qualifies for the specialty plate as a member of the issuing organization.

A customer may purchase a specialty licence plate as a gift for another person. Both the person gifting the plate and the person receiving the plate must have qualifying active policies. There is no limit to the number of gift plates that may be purchased.

Customers wanting to use the plates as a souvenir keepsake can purchase them at the regular cost. However, customers must have an active policy and a qualifying vehicle to process the transaction.

There are two primary types of plates available: member-based, such as the Firefighters plate and non-member-based, such as the Winnipeg Jets plate.
