Unfortunately PitCritter, when it comes to personal plates in Ontario, I don't think the phrase "right away" applies !!
I've had two sets, one for my F150 and one for my Mustang, and each time it's the same long process, got nothing to do with the dealer, it's all MTO.
You have to apply to the Ministry for the plate, they have to screen it to ensure there are no sexual or obscene references and then once they're happy they'll allow the plate to be made up and sent to you by Express Post.
You can get personal plates without a VIN....I did that when I ordered the Mustang.
Get to the MTO and get your application in this week and you might be good for the end of January....not sure, but you might even be able to apply on-line.
Either way - good luck. Any sneak peeks on what you're thinking of getting???
