New Plate.jpg


The Kentucky Firefighters Association Executive Board approved a new firefighter license plate design at their last meeting. Due to the current license plate design not meeting the standards set forth by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA), the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet advised the KFA Executive Board changes needed to be made. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet also advised they are transitioning from the embossed license plate method to a flat plate so they are currently reviewing all plate designs.


The current license plate did not meet the current standards of AAMVA due to the background image interfering with the plate numbers/letters.  Another change given to us by the AAMVA is the font of “Kentucky” at the top of the plate will need to be more easily read, as in block letters.  The full list of standards can be found at


We've submitted the new design to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to confirm compliance with the AAMVA.  The new license plate allows optimal readability by the human eye and automated license plate readers to ensure safety and accuracy.
