NASHVILLE (AP) - Tennessee motorists are now able to apply for personalized license plates online.

The state Department of Revenue said residents can choose from more than 100 types of plates that are available to personalize. The application is available online, where customers can also pay the $35 personalized plate application fee. Additional fees apply when the plates are picked up later at the local county clerk's office.

Specialty plates also require an additional $35 fee. There are more than 56,000 personalized plates on the road in Tennessee. The personalization fee helps support the Tennessee Arts Commission.
