The Dawson County Treasurer's Office does not process applications for  specialty plates.  This is a function of the Nebraska Department of Motor  Vehicles.

After a specialty plate application is approved, an approval letter is sent  to the applicant.  The letter indicates the date the plates will be  available at the County Treasurer's office and the County Treasurer's telephone  number to verify the Treasurer has received the plates.  Current plates and  registration must be surrendered when the specialty license plates are  registered.  Additional fees for production of the license plates and new  registration will be charged.  Applicants should allow 3 to 4 weeks for the  plates to arrive at their County Treasurer's office.  The $70.00 fee is due  at the time of initial application and at time of renewal.
