Sales of Minnesota's new blackout license plates top 50,000

Minnesota's new blackout license plates are selling like hotcakes, and they have already become by far the most popular of any 123 specialty plates available.

As of Monday, the Department of Vehicle Services (DVS) has issued more than 50,000 of the plates featuring block white letters against a black background in the first three months of the year since their debut.

The blackout plates were one of nine new specialty plates the DVS began offering in January after getting legislative approval last year. Iowa has had them since 2019 and they continue to be the tag of choice of drivers living in the Hawkeye state. More than 688,000 tags have been issued as of Dec. 31, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation.
