How much will the transfer cost?

Fees are calculated by member jurisdictions using different methods. The NYS IRB cannot calculate the amount of your bill until the transfer has been processed

When will the new registration expire?

The new registration expires on the same date as the original registration.

What if the new vehicle weighs more than the previous vehicle?

If the new vehicle weighs more than the previous vehicle, there are pro-rated registration fees for the difference in weight, administrative fees for the vehicle plate transfer and fees for any fee increases that may have occurred since the original registration was issued.


What should I do with the original cab card?

The original cab card for the vehicle being removed from your fleet must be sent to the  IRB.

What if I do not transfer the registration immediately?

If you do not transfer the registration immediately, surrender the apportioned plates and cab card to the IRB. Your vehicle registration will be suspended if there is a lapse of liability insurance and the apportioned plates were not surrendered. The driver license of the registrant can also be suspended.
