    Default Personalized Plates

    I'm hoping someone can answer this as the people in the issuing office seem pretty lost.

    I want a license plate that looks exactly like your ordinary Ontario license plate....4 letters, 3 numbers, and the ontario crown in between the letters and numbers. + Ontario at the top + "Yours to Discover" at the bottom

    but i want to customize those 4 letters and 3 numbers.

    So essentially, you probably won't be able to tell if it was personalized or not (Since the one I want starts with a B).

    I tried to order this online, and the only difference is that the ontario crown is not in between the numbers, and instead at the bottom right corner of the plate...I want to get it in between the letters and numbers like any ordinary plate.

    Is this possible w/ money?

    I'm not sure that's possible even if you toss more money I don't think our province is gonna bend the rules just for you. I know with customizing plates you won't have the little crown but never seen that accomplished by anyone.

    I'd suggest reading directly from there site on FAQ's or possibly contacting them via e-mail or directly by phone. Good Luck with that!

    yeah i called a rep from MTO... at first they said everything was good and that it was no problem. Up to the point where I said can I order it...they said do it online.

    I said I've tried the online configurator...and the ontario crown appears at the bottom right of the plate by default...i cant get it between the letters and numbers like how the standard plates are.

    the guys at MTO said in that case, you probably can't. they told me to consult the online configurator for more help

    The ministry won't produce a personalized plate with the crown in the middle, for all personalized plates, the crown will appear in the corner.

    The closest thing you can do is to find a sticker that closely resembles the crown and place it on a clear plate cover in between the letters and numbers. Also get some white tape and place it on the plate cover as well to cover up the crown on the plate. I don't recommend "altering" the plate in any way.

    But you didn't hear this from me.

    Don't let the crown being the wrong place stop you. If you are willing to fork over the money, grab it!

    The gov't will get your $240 eventually. Just you wait.

    Don't worry too much about the crown, most ppl won't even notice it.

    asked a buddy of mine and he said you cannot get the crown in the middle on a personalised plate... on the system it always shows as personalised whether or not you make it to appear like an ordinary plate

    if its 4 letters and 3 numbers you want i doubt anybody will notice where the crown is... the only exception being the members (like myself) who have read this thread

    Why is it so important to you anyway? Does it add something to the specialized plate or something?
    At least do the speed limit...please.

    lol, for personal reasons mainly...

    i think for those who are wondering about this in the future...apparently you "were" able to add the crown until a couple years ago when MTO decided to not allow it anymore.

    im just gonna be sticking to my stock plate for now

    @JadeButterfly just curious to hear what you ended up doing. I'm in the same boat, been wanting CHXX XXX for ages and now I'm trying to decide whether to risk trying to snag it from an MTO office in GTA/Tri-cities/Ottawa vs. playing it safe and paying the $310 for a vanity plate but I hate that the vanity plates don't allow you to have the crown in the middle.

    @rebjorne the person you tagged has not been active on the forum since 2014 and the post was from 2009...I'm not confident you will get a response from the member
