The $66.00 license plate fee is broken down as follows: $27.00 goes to PennDot for plate production fees while the remaining $39.00 will directly benefit the cancer research and patient care initiatives of the Mario Lemieux Foundation. Only one check, in the amount of $66.00 (plus any personalization or additional registration card requests) to the Mario Lemieux Foundation, should be written.

Once you have sent your completed application to the Mario Lemieux Foundation, please allow 7-10 weeks for delivery of your license plate.  If you have questions on the status of your plate, please contact the Mario Lemieux Foundation at 412-281-3466 or lemieuxfoundation@mlf66.org.  Do not contact PennDot.

Damaged plates - please contact the Mario Lemieux Foundation with questions regarding damaged plates.  In most cases, you will be responsible for the cost of replacing damaged plates.  The cost to replace your plate with the same number is $174.00, as PennDot treats these as a personalization request.

The Mario Lemieux Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to raising funds for cancer research and patient care initiatives.
