Report 93022 Summary - December 1993

A Review of the Department of Motor Vehicles' Administration of the Collegiate License Plate Program' (Letter Report)

The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) did not require the only participating educational institution to collect and hold applications for collegiate license plates until 5,000 applications had been received as required by Vehicle Code, Section 5024.

In the two years since the program began, the DMV has received 658 applications for collegiate license plates from the only participating educational institution, the UCLA Alumni Association (Association). As of December 6, 1993, the DMV has issued collegiate license plates for all the Association applications. If the program requirements cannot be modified to make the program viable, the Legislature may want to consider discontinuing the program.
