A new state license plate is catching on with some Iowa vehicle owners.

The new standard plate options will get phased in over 10 years, but people who want them now can pay $5 extra upon reviewing their registrations at county treasurer offices.

The new plates were first issued by the Iowa Department of Transportation in April. The existing standard Iowa license plates date to 1997. They account for 4.2 million of the 4.4 million Iowa plates in circulation.

The new plate has art, with a metro skyline on one side of the word “Iowa,” and a windmill and farm on the other.
