The special license plate owner may relinquish the plate(s) to the new vehicle owner or remove the plate(s) from the vehicle for transfer to a replacement vehicle. License plate transfer fees apply.

(2) Will any new fees be charged when the Helping Kids Speak license plate(s) are transferred? If the registration expiration date for the new vehicle is later than registration expiration date of the previous vehicle the fee for the Helping Kids Speak plate will be charged at the rate of one-twelfth of the annual Helping Kids Speak plate(s) fee for each exceeding month and partial month. If the new registration expiration date is sooner than the previous registration expiration date, a refund will not be made for the remaining registration period.

(3) May Helping Kids Speak license number plates be replaced with the same number if they become lost, defaced, or destroyed? Yes. Upon the loss, defacement, or destruction of one or both Helping Kids Speak license plate(s), the owner must make application for new Helping Kids Speak or other license plate(s) and pay the fees described in RCW 46.16.270. See note following subsection (5) of this section.

(4) Will Helping Kids Speak license plate(s) ever need replacing? Yes, the Helping Kids Speak license plate(s) are subject to the mandatory vehicle license plate replacement schedule.

Note: If the license plate(s) have been reported as stolen or if the department record indicates the plate has been stolen, the same number/letter combination will not be issued. This is a law enforcement issue and is for the protection of the public.
