The lettered license plates, as herein provided, are in lieu of the regular license plates on the motor vehicle owned by the amateur radio licensee for the period of time that the amateur radio license is in force under the federal communications commission and the special license issued hereunder is in force, but no longer. If the official amateur radio license is revoked or expires for any reason, the license plate must be removed immediately by the owner of the motor vehicle, and it is the responsibility of the owner to then obtain regular license plates.

On the revocation or expiration of the amateur radio station and operator's licenses, the lettered license plates as issued must be returned and surrendered to the department.
