I went to my local agency in Flemington and did it all right there.

There are no problems only solutions

Same here, I got them at the local DMV agency a few miles from where I live. Maybe things have changed since then. That was about 10 years ago.

Re: N.J. historic plates?

When I got mine 2 years ago I went to Flemington and they told me I had to go to Trenton to get them. I took the day off and went first thing in the morning so I was there when they opened. The only problem I had was, there was two offices at that time. (im not sure if there still is) I went to the office I found on the state website, (the one on S Stockton Street) when I got up to the girl at the window I told her I wanted to get QQ plates and she told me I was in the wrong place, I had to go to another office about two blocks away.... ok no big deal... I get to the other office and stand in line again to find out that they do the QQ plates there but I had to go back to the other office to transfter the title to my name, because they didnt do that at the second office.
So it was back to the first office to get the title transfered and then back to the second office to get my plates. The second time around the guy at the second office was in a much better mood....... I guess he had time to get his 1st coffee break in by then.

Re: N.J. historic plates?

All you need to do is go to your local DMV office and fill out the correct form. It's pretty much the simplest thing you can do for your restoration

If I remember correctly, once you send in the form and the $$ (I Believe it's 50 bucks) they will mail you your new QQ plates and then you never have to pay for your registration again

That does ring a bell, I think if your not in a rush for them you could just get a form at your local DMV and do it via the mail. In my case I didnt want to wait for the plates to come in the mail, thats why I went to Trenton. I did have to bring pictures of the car with me. I think it was one front shot and a side shot. So I would think you would have to mail pictures in with your form too.

Yes, that right Charlie, you do need the two pictures that you mention. I forgot all about that. It's been a while. I think it took about 3-4 weeks to get my plates in the mail. I already had regular plates on the car at the time so that was no big deal for me.

Re: N.J. historic plates?

I purchased a 69 last October and switched the title at the local DMV. I went to Trenton to get the QQ plates since I didn't want to wait for the mail. Here's the instructions.

Re: N.J. historic plates?

There are 2 ways to get QQ plates in NJ, in person at the Trenton headquarters, or by mail. You can get them the same day if you go to Trenton unless they are personalized plates. If you call the DMV they will send you out the form instead of you having to stop by to pick one up. The form will have all the instructions on it. I just ordered personalized plates this winter through mail and had them within a month. Most of the reps in the special plates dept. are very helpful and will answer any questions you have, I would call them directly instead of some person working the main desk.

Re: N.J. historic plates?

i went to dmv to get my registration done. but i had an out of state title. which took 2 weeks for them to check if it was a good title. than went to trenton and picked up my plates. if you send it in they just pick a set and send them to you. if you go there you have a choice to pick of whats available. people tell you it is 75 for lifetime registration. that is bull. it is 75 for 3 year registration.

Re: N.J. historic plates?

Glenn, thanks! Good Luck

Bill, from what i was told, the registration is a 3 year registration, but you only have to pay for it once for historic cars. So it needs to be renewed in 3 years but it won't cost you.
