In partnership with ICBC, we offer the choice of three special licence plate designs. These depict B.C.’s spectacular parks and protected areas. Choose from an elusive white Kermode bear, the snow-capped Purcell Mountains, or beautiful Porteau Cove overlooking Howe Sound.

A BC Parks licence plate costs $50 to purchase, and $40 to renew each year. They can be purchased at Autoplan brokers across the province. Ready to buy a licence plate? Click the button below to visit the ICBC website and find a broker near you.
