Since 2001, the NH Conservation License Plate (Moose Plate) program has contributed to the ongoing success of more than 150 projects around New Hampshire. Every county has benefited from the funds raised through the sale of Moose Plates.
You can purchase a Moose Plate at any time — for your new car, for a car that's already registered, or even by getting a gift certificate for a friend or family member to use when they register their car!
Standard issue Moose Plates have up to five digits, one of which is a "C" (for "Conservation") or an "H" (for "Heritage"). These plates also have a small vertical "CH" at the beginning of the individual plate number.
A standard issue Moose Plate costs slightly more than a regular license plate. This additional fee goes directly into the Moose Plate conservation and heritage fund.
Vanity Moose Plates can have up to six numbers, letters or symbols in any combination that is currently not being used for any New Hampshire license plate and that fulfills New Hampshire Division of Motor Vehicle standards.
Vanity Moose Plates cost slightly more than a regular license plate, and have an additional fees for the custom "vanity" numbers/letters.
Visit your municipal office in person to make your purchase, whether you're registering your car for the first time or renewing your registration and changing your plate to a NH Conservation License Plate.
You can also purchase a gift certificate for someone you know who doesn't yet have a NH Conservation License Plate but would love one.
All funds raised through the purchase of NH Conservation License Plates are used for the promotion, protection and investment in New Hampshire's natural, cultural, and historic resources.
