TRENTON – Sports fans wishing to show their pride on their ride will find it easier on their pocketbooks as the Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) today announced it has reduced the annual sports license plate renewal price from $60 to $25 – a customer savings of more than 50 percent. The reduction applies to all sports plate renewals beginning with those due this month.
“I’m confident that fans will be happy to take full advantage of this price reduction and show their team pride with a new sports plate on their vehicle,” said Raymond P. Martinez, MVC chairman and chief administrator.
In 2010, the MVC began offering 23 sports-themed license plates, which feature NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA and NASCAR logos, to the general public for $60 each for the first year and a $60 renewal fee thereafter. For those sports plate owners who may have paid an accelerated registration or have already renewed this month, they are encouraged to file for a pro-rated refund by downloading the refund application found at www.njmvc.gov/sports or by calling the MVC’s Refund Unit toll-free at 1-888-486-3339.
