As of May 17, 2010, if you request Empire Gold plates and your vehicle is registered in one of the registration classes listed below, you can keep the same plate number from your current plates on your new Empire Gold plates. The "same number" fee is $20, and the fee is in addition to the $25 plate fee ($12.50 for vehicles that receive only one plate).
The same number fee is not charged if you request your current personalized plate combination on an Empire Gold Plate, because you currently pay an annual personalized plate fee.
