Forget about having these personalized license plates on your vehicle here in Minnesota, because they've been declared illegal!

If you own a motor vehicle and you live here in Minnesota, you have several choices when it comes to choosing license plates. According to the state of Minnesota Department of Public Safety (MDPS) Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) website, there are 15 different classes of license plates available, from commercial to motorcycle, dealer to limousine, and more.

Then, there are nearly 15 different license plate options under the specialized plate category, including special plates for Collector, Critical Habitat, State Parks and Trails, and more. There is also the newly-introduced blackout license plates, plus specialty plates for the Vikings, Twins, Wild, Timberwolves and Lynx. And, of course, you can also personalize your OWN license plates here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes too.

Just what are the guidelines for getting your personalized plate request approved? This CBS-Minnesota story quoted Minnesota Department of Public Safety communications director Bruce Gordon, who explained what is off-limits:

“The law says that any license plate that would offend the public morals or decency is not acceptable,” Gordon noted in the story.

So, go ahead and take a look at some personalized plate requests that were turned down by the state of Minnesota recently, per Axios Twin Cities.
