How much do Adventure Plates cost?
The custom plate fee varies if the plate number is assigned by DMV or if you personalize it. Learn more about personalized plates.
|Annual renewal* (assigned)||$15.00|
|Annual renewal* (personalized)||$46.25|
* The fee noted for each renewal is the $15 annual I LOVE NY fee + the personalization fee (if applicable) and does not include the regular registration renewal fees due upon each renewal. As the $15 I LOVE NY fee is an annual fee, if your registration is renewed every two years (passenger and commercial class) the fee is $30 at renewal.
If you purchased a LIFETIME NYS Parks issued Empire Passport or DEC issued LIFETIME Sporting License in 2014, the fees noted above (except personalization fees, if applicable) are waived for your first plate purchase and first renewal only. Personalization fees are $31.25 for passenger and commercial registration classes.
