Q. Now that I’m a homeschooler, I’m interested in getting an “Education Begins at Home” license plate. I’m so encouraged when I see them on cars! How can I get one?

A. Every year, I’m so excited to see more and more homeschool license plates! Homeschooling parents can order “Education Begins at Home” license plates from the DMV website at any time during the year. It’s a great way to encourage fellow homeschoolers and show your support educational freedom!

In 2005, HEAV initiated legislation in the Virginia General Assembly to create the first homeschool license plate in the nation—“Education Begins at Home.” HEAV submitted the slogan and design to DMV officials, and then obtained 350 prepaid orders before DMV would imprint the initial plates. Now you see them everywhere!


Thanks for joining HEAV in making homeschooling known to the public in such a positive way!
