Montana license plates will soon be easier to read.  The new license plates feature letters and numbers in a larger, bolder, slightly rounded font with a little more spacing between letters and numbers, improving legibility for Montana’s law enforcement officers.

Over the past several months, the Law Enforcement Working Group, comprised of members of the Motor Vehicle Division, Montana Correctional Enterprises, the Montana Highway Patrol and other law enforcement agencies, recommended the font change and reviewed how samples looked on Montana’s plate designs, ensuring the background graphics didn’t interfere with the enlarged font.
