DMV ENCOURAGES NEW YORK PRO FOOTBALL FANS TO SHOW PRIDE IN THEIR FAVORITE TEAM WITH A NFL CUSTOM LICENSE PLATE
Buffalo Bills, New York Giants and New York Jets Custom Plates Available to Order on the DMV Website
The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) today encouraged professional football fans in New York to show their pride in the state’s National Football League (NFL) teams by ordering their favorite team’s license plate. Custom license plates representing the Buffalo Bills, New York Giants, and New York Jets are available to order on DMV’s website.
“The NFL season kicked off today, and all three New York teams play their first games on Sunday, so this is a perfect time for fans to show their passion for their favorite team by ordering plates,” said DMV Commissioner Mark J.F. Schroeder. “With a NFL custom plate, fans can display their pride in and appreciation for their team not just during football season, but all year long.”
DMV offers four NFL-related plates for purchase: Buffalo Bills, New York Giants, Giants Super Bowl Champs 2012, and New York Jets. The initial charge for these custom plates is $60, thereafter an annual renewal fee of $31.25 will be charged in addition to the regular renewal fee. NFL team plates can be personalized for an additional fee. Motorists are billed for the plates every two years when they renew their registrations. New York’s NFL team plates are available for both passenger and commercial vehicles.
To qualify to purchase a NFL plate, a motorist must have:
- a valid New York State registration that does not expire within 60 days;
- an up-to-date name and address on file with DMV;
- a credit or debit card that DMV accepts; and
- a valid email address for confirmation purposes.
The quickest and easiest way to order NFL plates is online at dmv.ny.gov. Customers can also order custom plates by mail, at their local DMV office or by calling the DMV Custom Plate Unit at (518) 402-4838.
In addition to NFL plates, DMV offers more than 200 different designs for custom plates representing other professional sports, military and veterans, regions of New York and more. More than a dozen of the plates are also available for motorcycles. For more information and to browse a gallery of available custom plates, visit the DMV website.
