After checking for ideas for custom EV related license plates from this forum, what is banned by the CA DMV, and seeing what's available through the DMV's website, I submitted a request and paid for a custom license plate. It says 8-12 weeks for pickup at my local DMV office. I'm wondering if anyone else got through this stage and whether the DMV still rejected the custom plate before finalizing it to be ready for pickup. My plate is a little tongue and cheek, but it did go through the portal as available. It wasn't on the list of clearly banned plates either.
