CHARLESTON, W.Va. - West Virginia drivers can display their state pride with a license plate marking its 150th birthday.
The Division of Motor Vehicles will set up a booth at the state Capitol on Saturday for motorists to obtain the Sesquicentennial plate.
To get one, customers should bring their current registration and proof of valid insurance. You also must bring proof of paid personal property taxes for 2012.
People who are unable to travel to Charleston for the commemorative plates can still exchange their current license plate at any regional office or by mail at the time of renewal.
This week's festivities in the capital city and elsewhere mark West Virginia's split from Virginia during the Civil War.
