Applicants in this year's drawing will be vying for 161 of the most sought after Massachusetts license plates, including 67, T7, Y11 and Z44.
Entries had to be mailed and postmarked by August 8, 2011. Winners who do not register their vehicle with their winning lottery plate by December 31, 2011 will automatically forfeit their plate. All forfeited plates will be offered to a list of 25 alternate winners who will be chosen at the drawing.

Others may complete their license renewal application, print it, and be ready for your branch visit. Other convenient services online include registration renewal, plate/registration cancellation, scheduling a road test, and requesting a duplicate title.
