Some facts about New Jersey license plates

  •  All the types of plates issued since 1959 are still valid provided they have been continuously registered.
  • For a nominal fee, motorists can get their license plates remade with the same number. So you can see a number issued in the 1950s on the latest type of license plate.
  • New Jersey only uses the letter Q for its historic vehicle license plates and of course vanity plates.
  • New Jersey issues New York Press license plates, one of two states other than New York known to issue them. The plates have a distinctive NYP on them which some people think means New York Police, despite the fact that New York City Police officers cannot legally live in New Jersey.
