West Virginia residents can now show pride in their state with a 150th birthday license plate, according to a news release from Governor Tomblin's Office.

The plate is being offered by the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) as an alternative standard issuance plate option for W.Va. passenger vehicle owners during 2013, according to the news release.

"Whether you're traveling within West Virginia or through another state, the 150th birthday license plate will proudly showcase the pride we have in our state's heritage," Gov. Tomblin said. "I appreciate the DMV's commitment to our state's heritage and look forward to seeing more of these plates on our roads."

Those wishing to obtain the plate can exchange their current license plate at any DMV regional office or by mail at the time of renewal. Drivers can also exchange their plate at any other time for a pro-rated registration fee.
