Note: During the changeover from the 2009 to the 2017 series, it is possible that a nonreserved number (i.e. passenger #8501 or truck #6750) may be registered to two different vehicles and two different owners at the same time. Both plates are legal because one is the 2009 Teton Series~~ and one is the new ~~2017 Green Lake Series. The reserved and non-reserved plates for the new 2017 Green Lake series will be available January 2, 2017. The reserved numbers will be held for the full year of 2017.
