By purchasing a Land Surveyor license plate, you will be providing educational opportunities for individuals that are interested in becoming a Professional Surveyor.

The North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) issues Land Surveyor specialty license plates that provide Professional Land Surveyors a way to show your pride as a Professional Land Surveyor in North Carolina.  The NCSS Education Foundation encourages you to purchase a specialty license plate for each vehicle that you own.

How much does it cost?
Twenty-five dollars ($25.00) for a standard-issue plate.  For an additional $30 you can customize your plate.  Note, customized plates cannot be numbers only, but can be a combination of numbers and letters.  Note, these fees will be in addition to your regular plate fee.

Support the North Carolina Society of Surveyors (NCSS) Education Foundation
Fifteen dollars ($15.00) of the fee that you pay for the specialty plate(s) goes to the NCSS Education Foundation. This fee is awarded upon the first purchase and renewed annually as you renew your specialty plate.

How do I obtain a Land Surveyor license plate?
