- Who we are.
'Get My Plates' is operated by Online Entities, LLC, hereinafter referred to as "Provider", is a privately owned site which utilizes information made publicly available from various state bureau of motor vehicle (aka BMV, aka DMV) sites.
Provider is not affiliated with any state or government agency.
- Passenger Vehicles
This site checks against a single plate configuration according to a specification defined for each state.
This will vary from state to state; however, in general Provider targets a stanard license plate for a passenger vehicle.
Additional restrictions, such as number of letters/digits/symbols available, may apply depending on the exact license plate style configuration, such as a logo plate, user selects for the state.
User is responsible for determining if their desired personalization is valid for the State and that it will fit for the plate style they choose. Contact the state licensing bureau for specific rules.
- No Refunds.
You may request cancellation of your account at any time. Refunds will only be issued if required by law.
User is responsible for ensuring Provider email domain is added to whitelist or other permitted settings with their email provider so communications are not blocked by spam/junk mail filters.
In compliance with the email vendor terms, options to unsubscribe from our emails are provided with the email. If the user chooses to unsubscribe from our emails, then further emails such as plate available notifications will be suspended.
User is responsible for applying for a license plate should it become available. Submission of the application including payment of any fees is the responsibility of the user.
Provider can not guarantee that a given license plate will be issued. Some states screen personalization text after the plate application is submitted. It is the user responsibility to confirm if a plate is permissable by the state.
- License Plate Checking.
License plate queries for States which are made available through this site have been tested to work.

- Resolving Disputes.
Let’s Try To Sort Things Out First. We want to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against Provider, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting getmyplates AT gmail DOT com. We’ll try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via email. If a dispute is not resolved within 15 days of submission, you or Provider may bring a formal proceeding.
Judicial forum for disputes. You and Provider agree that any judicial proceeding to resolve claims relating to these Terms or the Services will be brought in the federal or state courts of Cincinnati, Ohio, subject to the mandatory arbitration provisions below. Both you and Provider consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in such courts.
IF YOU’RE A U.S. RESIDENT, YOU ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS:
We Both Agree To Arbitrate. You and Provider agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms or the Services through final and binding arbitration by a single arbitrator, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below. This includes disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of this “Mandatory Arbitration Provisions” section, including its enforceability, revocability, or validity.
Opt-out of Agreement to Arbitrate. You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by submitting a message to us with the subject "Opt Out" through our Contact Page along with a message that your are requesting to opt-out within 30 days of first registering your account. However, if you agreed to a previous version of these Terms that allowed you to opt out of arbitration, your previous choice to opt out or not opt out remains binding.
Arbitration Procedures. The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, Cincinnati (OH), or any other location we agree to.
Arbitration Fees and Incentives. The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. If you receive an arbitration award that is more favorable than any offer we make to resolve the claim, we will pay you $20 in addition to the award. Provider will not seek its attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. Either you or Provider may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Cincinnati (OH) or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above. If the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in Cincinnati, Ohio to resolve your claim.
NO CLASS ACTIONS. You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren’t allowed. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Mandatory Arbitration Provisions” section will be deemed void.
- Controlling Law
These Terms will be governed by Ohio law except for its conflicts of laws principles.
- Entire Agreement
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Provider with respect to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights.
- Waiver, Severability & Assignment
Provider’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. Provider may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
Provider may revise these Terms from time to time to better reflect:
(a) changes to the law,
(b) new regulatory requirements, or
(c) improvements or enhancements made to our Services.
If an update affects your use of the Services or your legal rights as a user of our Services, Provider will notify you prior to the update's effective date by sending an email to the email address associated with your account or via an in-product notification. These updated terms will be effective no less than 30 days from when we notify you.
If you don’t agree to the updates Provider makes, please cancel your account before they become effective. Where applicable, Provider will offer you a prorated refund based on the amounts you have prepaid for Services and your account cancellation date. By continuing to use or access the Services after the updates come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
