Welcome to our website, selling online since 2009 (as ClassicLicensePlates.com & .biz)

Many of our vintage California license plates, stickers and tabs can be used with the California Year of Manufacture Program (YOM): using old California plates and tags that match up with the model year of your vehicle; 1980 and older cars and trucks are eligible. You'll need a "clear" set of base plates, and an old sticker or metal year tab that matches the year of your vehicle.


If you live in Florida, you may be interested in the Authenticated License Plate Program, which allows some vintage Florida license plates and tags to be used on vehicles from the 1960's and early 1970's - and we have several automobile and motorcycle plates that may be eligible for that program. 


Please note: we are not set up to make plates (all of our novelty plates were purchased several years ago).
