There’s nothing like a bit of friendly university rivalry, especially when it comes to school spirit. We’ve asked you to vote for which university you think has more actively registered school-specific Virginia personalized license plates: Virginia Tech or the University of Virginia? 80 percent of voters thought that Virginia Tech had more registered vanity license plates. According to the Virginia DMA, Virginia Tech has 17,374 active vehicle registrations associated with their school-specific plate, while the University of Virginia only has 6,977 registered plates.

That means 80 percent of you have hawk-like eye sight and a strong attention to detail, as you were able to notice the overwhelming presence of Virginia Tech license plates. Nice work!

While university specialized license plates are a popular option, there are hundreds (literally, hundreds) of other designs you can also pick. Here’s a bit more about Virginia personalized license plates.
