“The idea to revive New Jersey’s blue license plate was recommended to me by a constituent. It turns out that many New Jerseyans, especially classic car enthusiasts, favor the vintage license plate design that gained popularity in the ‘80s,” said Corrado (R-40). “In fact, if a New Jersey driver were to order a custom license plate today, they would still receive a plate with the standard yellow background. My legislation will actually give drivers the opportunity to purchase something that is truly different and unique.”

The legislation, S-3181, authorizes the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) to issue classic New Jersey license plates to replicate the ones issued between 1979 and 1991. In addition to fees typically associated for the registration of a motor vehicle, there is an application fee of $50 and an annual renewal fee of $10 for the classic license plates.

“New Jersey would not be the first state to bring back retro license plates,” added Corrado. “Many states have already done this and they have found there to be great demand for them.”
