RMV Begins Low Number License Plate Lottery

One-hundred-and-forty lucky Massachusetts drivers could soon find themselves sporting a brand new low number on their license plates.

The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles has begun its annual low number license plate lottery, with plates made available from a specific low number cache, according to a Massachusetts Department of Transportation statement Friday.

Applicants will vie for 140 coveted plates including plate numbers Z7, 740 and 6868, according to the statement.

“We expect to receive hundreds of applications leading up to the annual lottery,” Registrar of Motor Vehicles Rachel Kaprielian said in the statement. “We see interest and fascination from customers year after year. Some are trying to win a lucky number or letter combination, others are looking for an easy to remember plate, and still other applicants want to be part of the historical novelty that comes with a low number plate.”

Those interested can download the application from MassRMV.com or visit any RMV branch to receive an application.

Applications will only be accepted by mail and must be postmarked Aug. 12.

The drawing will be broadcast live on “NightSide with Dan Rea” on WBZ 1030AM radio Sept. 12 between 8 and 10 p.m.

There are a few ground rules:

  • The RMV will accept only one entry per applicant.
  • Postcard entries will not be accepted.
  • Winners who do not register their vehicle with the winning lottery plate by Dec. 31, 2013 will forfeit their plate. Forfeited plates will be then offered to a list of 25 alternate winners, listed during the Sept. 12 drawing.
