Actually, you have two options when applying for number tags: standard and personalized plates. The standard one generally costs lower and has a state-issued design. The personalized one costs more however you may have the desired combination written to it. To check if the combination you want on your tags is available you can run a quick lookup.
Before you may receive your number tags in WY, you have to provide a valid insurance certificate and coverage. In short, you must have at least the following coverage for your vehicle: For each accident, a minimum of $25,000 is required per person and for total injuries in a single accident, a minimum of $50,000 is necessary. Your insurance policy should also include uninsured motorist coverage. Otherwise, if you don't have them, you could face fines and penalties.
In case you no longer use your car or move to another state you have to surrender your current license plates. The same goes for the case you switch to another type for example from non-commercial to commercial, etc. Surrendering is not a difficult deal. All you need to do is to complete the WYDOT's request form and bring your documentation, together with the current decals, to the nearest office. Keep in mind that there may be fines associated with surrendering if you have a late renewal for example.
