THREE sets of Maryland license plate applications were mailed TODAY.

(They would have been mailed sooner, but I could not find the mailbox)

Are you now one of the very FEW Maryland club members without our special license plates?

Our tags carry numbers in sequence only - see the sample on the main web page.

You may be able to order this as a personal vanity tag - National BMW can tell you if you may use the club emblem on a personal tag....

Bob, you'd appreciate this, I had a Md tag for years XXK533 on my 533, just got lucky.I think the DMV lady gave me 531 and I asked if I could have 533 and she went with it!!

Current numbers show that our active tags jump from BMW 0529 to BMW 0535...so you are talking about regular Maryland tags, right?



I should be ordering BMW 0750 to BMW 0800 in a few weeks!!!

If I could substitute 4 letters rather than numbers, I'd definitely order one. I already have a vanity at the moment.

Bob, if you are saying we may ask for one within the available group, I'd like to pre-order one within your next 50! (40 actually :) )

I will be ordering BMW 0751 to 0800. Numbers 0777 and 0789 are already reserved.

I will likely be ordering BMW 0801 to 0850 in early 2011. Numbers 0808 and 0850 are already reserved.

ANYONE wanting a special number not already reserved may request it using the form on our web site. In the REMARKS, put the number you would like.
Two requests for the same number - first in gets it.

Any questions?

So, out of curiosity, which is more popular, MD or VA plates?

SpongeBob
02-18-2010, 07:29 PM
No question - You see a lot more Maryland NCCBMWCCA club license plates on cars........more than 752 of them than Virginia NCCBNMWCCA plates!!!!

Thought so. Working in the DC area, I have never seen a VA plate. While when the weather breaks, the MD plates can be seen everywhere.

What is the current range of numbers available if we would like to chose?

Also, if the car is registered in both the husband's and wife's name do both need to be BMWCCA members or is one member sufficient?

Billydix
04-12-2013, 02:20 PM
1046 - 1050 as of right now. If you want you can reserve a number starting with 1046 and greater. However number go in numerical order. I.E. if you want 2002 you will have to wait until we get to those sequence of numbers. Tags are assign to the club member not the car per say.

Did you ever get an answer to this question.

Regarding if both husband and wife are on registration, do you both have to be members.
To expand further, my wife is listed on both my bmw's, can I get two sets of tags where I am the registered member but we are both on registration.

Zchild
07-05-2013, 08:51 PM
@<hidden> is your wife an associate member... You spouse as well as members of your household qualify for associate membership which grants them all membership benefits; however you only receive one Roundel and DB magazine for the household. Associate membership is only an extra $10.00 per year. just my two and a half cents worth...

Yes, I was informed that only one member would be sufficient even of the car is titled in two names. However, like zchild states you can add an associate member for only $10/yr.

If you were hoping to get your plate soon you may be disappointed. I have been waiting for my MVA form since mid-April, almost three months. After repeated inquiries I was finally told that the Club was waiting for members to pick up already assigned plates before they could issue more. Now it is stated that we are waiting for new plates to arrive to the Glen Burnie MVA. Whatever the issue(s), it has dampened my excitement about the Club. I would suggest that the NCC stop advertising the MD Club tag in the printed magazine until plates are actually available. I do understand that members may be volunteering their time to run the Club so I am trying to be patient.

If anyone has had a more successful result or has received a more informed response to submitting the initial form I would appreciate hearing it.

BlueSky, I understand your situation beause the same thing happen to me. The process is a follows. MVA allocates us a set number of plates. I issue the application to you to get the plates. If the plates are not pick up in a timely matter the process get screwed up because MVA will not order new plates until 95% of the tags have been issued. This can create a long gap because it take 60 - 90 days for new tags to created and shipped to MVA. At the same time we can run out of tags while I have to harass members to decide whether they want their tags or not. It is unfortunate that when you applied for a tag we were at that point. I am attempting to correct that situation so the process can run smoother.

BMW tags are numbers only. Fill out the online app and I will get you an app which goes to MVA and they will send you tags. 0786 is long gone. we are between 1051 and 1100 and 1100 has been spoken for a long time ago.

Since we have 1051 though 1099 available, I am choosing 1099: after the Kingdom of Jerusalem was established, the Al-Aqsa Mosque was made into the residential palace for the kings of Jerusalem. The Kings of Jerusalem, were the three main religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islamic. At one time all three of the main religions of the world were in harmony and peace, and there was more peace on earth in that century and in that time than any other in history. Everyone got along like a bunch of Hippies!. :)



If anyone is a nerd like myself and wish to choose a number which is available and has significant historical meaning behind it, then please use the link below:

Billydix
01-15-2014, 07:02 AM
I know its been awhile, but I would like to update those concerned about Tags. We have been overwhelmed with request for tags. We only get 50 tags at a time. Since September the request are greater than the tags we have to allocate. Currently, I am waiting on the new allotment of tags to arrive. If you made a request I have gotten it. In the past the turnaround was faster. Until MVA will allow us more tags, I will be in catch up mode. I do ask one thing from the requestors. When you get the app, get your tags ASAP. MVA will not order tags until the shelf of current tags are empty. When you take your time getting your tag, you hold up others from getting theirs. To help ease they mystery, I will be contacting all who have requested tags to let them know they have not been forgotten.

Thanks in advance for your understanding.

I believe the next set of tags that the MVA will make available are 1100-1150; however, I think most are already spoken for since we haven't gotten plates since last summer and the waitlist is pretty jammed. Thus, 1151-1200 would be the next batch.

Hello again! I saw the update that tags were available Sept 1. I haven't had anyone check with me but I am still interested. I am just about to renew my membership so its been a year. Should it take this long?

The effort to issue club tags in VA never gained the necessary traction, so it's not a choice for us. I have not been following the MD club tag dispersion efforts, but if the only reason you are a member is to sport club tags, perhaps you should reevaluate. This chapter is run strictly by volunteers - I hope you are able to find a solution.

I know with any organization an incentives to members is a plus. I have enjoyed the benefits of the volunteers but also everything you do with an organization costs, nothing is provided for free, so I agree with CamilleJames, you see the advertisement in the magazine that it will take a week or two but it is taking longer. Incentives keep people interested in a whole.

Uhh, well ok. Let me assure you I am a die hard BMW owner. The first car I ever bought (325i) I knew exactly what I wanted. A decade later I bought my exceptional 330xi, Melee, the first car I ever loved. I started reading and learning the history of BMW and about my car in particular. When I had to sell Melee I sold to someone new to BMW's who mentioned that that year was his 'dream car'. I still cried as he took it away. I spent many icy January hours driving my salesperson crazy because he had 'several cars that he know I would be happy with' he had no idea. My husband just walked away because he knows what I'm like when I'm in a bimmer state of mind. Now I am having fun with Corazon, my 335xi, very black, very mean. Sometimes I choose between exploring what's on satellite or listening to the engine. Often the engine wins. I don't meet many moms who share my enthusiasm when I scored an absolutely clean 'cult classic' 318i for my son at an auction for $600. My idea of a celebrity is a woman I met who has a pristine '90's era 5 series and a '80's 7 series with paint like glass, she told me she completely restores them every five years. My hero! I bought my BMWCCA membership as a gift to myself for Christmas, anticipating hours and hours of reading about my favorite subject. So I really don't think I have anything to reevaluate, I'm good right here.

....now about my tags....

I just want to know what is the normal waiting time for tags I have heard different messages, some say a couple weeks after submitting your application. I have heard it can take awhile, exactly what is awhile. I want to get more definitive answers other than assumptions.

Are you that are awaiting tags in communication with or hearing anything from "billydix," Billy Dixon, the Maryland License Plate Administrator? I see that he last posted here in late September. Perhaps he can provide the answers.

Billydix

Here are the answers. We get XX number of tags at a time. Apps go out on a first come first served basis. It then becomes the responsibility of the applicant to send the app to MVA. This is where the fun begins. Many will sit on the app or forget they wanted tags. No new tags are assigned to us until all current tags are assigned. In 2013 30 tags had to be reassigned 4 times until all tags were issued. This has created a major backup. The request kept coming while the existing were sitting un claimed. Between the last tag and a new group of tags will take 60 unless the demand is extreme. Only one group make tags for all clubs. Contrary to popular belief there is no unlimited supply. You are at the mercy of the person in front of you. I do monitor tag pick up so I can move on to the next person. Everybody who wants a tag will get a tag. If you put a request in today, you will see a app in your mailbox by mid December at the earliest. However it could be sooner. At current pace , March should see a faster turn around. If you want to discuss it more PM me.

Billy, how do I go about transferring tags? My car was a lease and I had club tags, then I bought the car at the end of the lease. The dealership told me I need to get a letter from BMWFS releasing the tags since technically they belonged to them, the lease company. I am in the process of doing that but what do I need to do next? Thanks.

Go to the home page of this website and on the top right hand corner is the link. I believe we are somewhere around plate numbers 1100-1200, so if you have a specific number in mind, add to your request form.

Hello,

I put in a request for tags in Jan and haven't received any updates. I even sent a personal email and once again nothing. It seems members have been getting plates with request dates in Feb. Not sure why I'm getting passed up.

Hello Billi,

I sent a request for tags and haven't received any updates. Would be possible to get an estimate date when I will get the MVA application to order the tags? Thanks

Hello Billi,

I also placed an order for a set of tags.
Is there some form of confirmation email sent back? If so, I did not get one.
Are there any additional steps required on my behalf to ensure completion of this process?
What is normal turn around time for submitting the original request?
I had a set of tags a few years ago, however, back then the process involved an email containing a confirmation to go the MVA.

Thank you,
-D

There might be a considerable wait to receive them based on other members' experiences.
Open to Maryland residents only.
Your National Capital Chapter Membership will be verified and must be current.
You may apply for a tag if you have a metal Maryland currently on your car and you have no outstanding violations on the car you want the tag for.

Hello Billy,

How are you? I am not sure if my messages are getting through, but this is my 5th attempt to get in contact with you to check the status of my TAG order.

My name is Andrew Duncan
Been a member since 2008, I had tags 0792 MD tags. however due to work obligations, I had to go on an assignment overseas which forced me to turn my tags in. Anyways, now that I'm back, I would like to get another set of Tags. I've submitted all the pertinent information in Tag request form. However, so far I had not got any updates on where I am in the process. I would wondering if you could please provide some guidance?

Thank you
