Have an Ohio Gold License Plate?

You'll soon be required to get it replaced

Ohio is doing away with its Ohio Gold series of license plates.

The Ohio Department of Public Safety said the Ohio Gold series of license plates are being pulled from circulation saying the plates are at least 10-15 years past their life cycle and wear and tear over the years is a concern for drivers.

Spokesperson Lindsey Bohrer said it's the standard best practice that license plates are replaced and in the AAMVA License Plate Standards document, it states that: “Because license plates commonly lose significant reflectivity within 10 years, a required rolling or full replacement cycle not to exceed 10 years is recommended. Jurisdictions should also have a process to replace damaged license plates as soon as practical.”
