The plate, which is smaller but identical to the Friends of Coal automobile license plate, is reflective black with a white border and white lettering. It is the first organization motorcycle plate offered by the state.

“I am excited to partner with organizations like Friends of Coal to offer customers special license plates, including our first organization motorcycle plate,” said West Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Pat Reed.

The Friends of Coal and the West Virginia Coal Association joined in the announcement.

“We have had a lot of people asking about a motorcycle plate for Friends of Coal,” said Bill Raney, president of the West Virginia Coal Association. “We worked with the West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles and were able to get it done. We hope all our Friends of Coal like it.”

The plate is available for Class G motorcycles and will cost $56 for the first year and $31 for renewals.
