RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- The city of Richmond and community leaders are hoping drivers can show their area pride with a new license plate.
Officials on Thursday announced the design for the "RVA" license plate they hope to submit to the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.
They must first pre-sell 350 of the license plates before the design can be submitted. Once submitted, the DMV could take up to nine months to start producing the plates.
The Richmond-Times Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/190mbvg) that the General Assembly and governor must also authorize all special license plates.
According to the announcement, the plate costs $10 annually, or $20 for a personalized plate or transfer.
