American Legion License Tags - How To....

The Department of Maryland, in conjunction with the Motor Vehicle Administration, offers all paid up members in good standing the opportunity to obtain The American Legion (Legion, Auxiliary, S.A.L.) organizational license tag for their vehicle. Any Department of Maryland American Legion member, who has a vehicle (cars, trucks or SUV's, not including trailers) registered in their name may qualify for the tag, (subject to MVA regulations). The procedure for obtaining a license tag is:

  1. Send Department Headquarters a letter (example below) along with a copy of the registration of the vehicle to be tagged, and $2.00 for processing. Either the owner or co/owner must be a member in good standing (current dues paid) with their post. If in doubt, contact the Post 66 Adjutant at (301) 728-4393 or email adjpost66@comcast.net  for specific information and instructions.

  2. Upon receipt of the letter and the copy of the registration, Department Headquarters will complete the application, assign a tag number, and return the application and a Tag Listing Book to the member. (Tag Listing Book lists all MD Legion tags and who has them. This book is currently being updated and will be forwarded when complete).

  3. Once the member receives the application paperwork back from Department, fill it out and they can get their tags in one of three ways:

The Motor Vehicle Administration one time fee charge of $25.00 must be accompanied with the application when taken or mailed to The Department of Motor Vehicles.

METHOD 1 - Completed applications taken directly to the DMV in Glen Burnie (2nd Floor, Window 104, Organizational Tags) will receive their tags at that time. This is the quickest way. Once at the MVA it takes only a few minutes for the tags to be issued.

METHOD 2 - Completed applications taken to a MVA satellite office will have the tags mailed to them by the MVA.

METHOD 3 - Completed applications mailed to the MVA will also have their tags mailed to them by the MVA.
