I just got a "new" (to me) truck and had to do some digging but found 
that NC does indeed have Amateur Radio license plates available.  They 
aren't well-advertised on the NC DMV web site, and they aren't even well 
known by the workers at the DMV office.  I learned about it from the 
ARRL web site so was able to be persistent at the DMV office.  At first 
she didn't want to give them to me because they weren't showing up in 
the computer but she asked around and found the right place to look and 
I got it anyway.

Cost is $10 more than a regular registration and includes your 
callsign.  Regular personalized tags with a callsign would have been 
about $30 over regular price so this was cheaper.  They do allow a 
suffix if you have more than one car with amateur radio tags.
