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:
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
specific information and instructions.
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).
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
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.
