Serving the Department of Motor Vehicles

As roads and vehicles change, one thing remains the same – the need for license plates that help law enforcement quickly and effectively identify vehicles, are easily visible and safeguard against counterfeiting.

Comprehensive Vehicle Registration Solutions

At 3M, we’re committed to supporting the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and other agencies with comprehensive vehicle registration solutions that help optimize processes, reduce costs and deliver license plates that are bright, durable and effective for vehicle identification.

Helping You Optimize License Plates

For decades, we have been proud to provide comprehensive vehicle registration solutions for motor vehicle agencies and license plate manufacturers around the world.

The HD revolution is here

3M™ High Definition License Plate Sheeting is more legible for law enforcement, more visible in low-light conditions and has a greater retained brightness for long-term use than 3M™ Beaded License Plate Sheeting. It’s also designed to be secure and hinder counterfeiting efforts, potentially reducing lost revenue in the process.

In this whitepaper, we examine how the benefits of this new technology outweigh the costs and why high definition license plate sheeting is a solution for the future.
