HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- New standard license plates are coming to Virginia, starting next year.
The new license plate looks similar to the current one; however, toward the bottom, the "Virginia is for Lovers" slogan has been added.
The travel website for the state will also be on the new plates.
Katey Warren, a tourism specialist in the Valley said these new license plates could end up helping out the state in a big way.
"We populate their website with a lot of local events. Our businesses are all up there. So essentially, we're really getting a lot of benefit out of this. From our businesses to our events and everything going on because that website is soon going to be on a whole lot of vehicles here soon," said Warren.
The new plates will be standard-issue and will start being given out to drivers next March.
