West Virginia Debuts 'In God We Trust' License Plate

West Virginia Religious License Plate

The state Division of Motor Vehicles has unveiled a special license plate with the motto “In God We Trust.”

It mirrors the state motto adopted in 1956 and the motto used on U.S. currency and coins.

DMV commissioner Pat Reed says the license plate was sponsored by the Dry Fork Recreation Center in Randolph County. The center collected the first 250 paid applications required to produce a special plate.

Several other states have plates with the same motto.
