    I have had to get generic plates issued and then exchanged for the personalized every time I did it. Not sure if there is any way to avoid that.
    Also, note, it can be a LOOONNNNGGGG wait to get the personalized plates made and delivered to the DMV office of your choice.

    You have to exchange plate for plate. Unlikely you can do it with paper plate.

    Anyone that recently asked for HOV decals, how long did it take for DMV to cash your check, and how long for the stickers in the mail? I want to mail mine in so the check gets cashed no sooner than January. With the amount of Teslas that have been selling I can imagine that the backlog has only gotten worse.
