Choosing a vehicle that is safe and trustworthy can mean the difference between life and death on the road. In lieu of a VIN number search, the vehicle history reports of Alaskan units can be viewed quickly using the Alaska license plate lookup above.
Based on ValuePenguin’s 2019 report, there are about 178,516 vehiclles registered in Alaska.
All Alaska-registered vehicles (except motorcycles and trailers) require a pair of two license plates. These plates must be displayed on the cars all the time whenever driving on Alaskan roads. In addition, a month tab and year tab must be attached to the backplate.
All Alaska license plates are issued by the Alaska Department of Administration through its Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
In case an Alaska license plate is lost or mutilated, the car owner must apply for replacement plates and tabs.
A person may apply for personalized license plates if they meet the criteria. However, the issuing agency has the right to deny any combinations with negative or misleading connotations in accordance with 2 AAC 92.120.
