You can mail them to Trenton
besides I never had to wait, if they see you holding plates they ask if you are surrendering and take & give receipt right away....

Well hope your old plates are really old and some one doesn't miss read a plate # and it comes up as one of your old ones....nightmare city

Default Realty Transfer Fee Senior Reduction

If one of your parents is over 62 years old, they get a lower rate. Only one of the sellers needs to be 62.

Default Turning in License Plates

[quote=TracySam;4375063]

Whenever the rules went into effect that said people had to hand in old plates, this was not publicized. Putting it into the driver's manual doesn't count. Who gets a new driver's manual every year? Who routinely peruses the NJ statutes database?

I had vehicles registered in NJ for 40+ years and have always returned the plates to MV and received a receipt. It has been like that as long as I can remember. I heard it was to your benefit in case the plates were used on a stolen vehicle, you had the receipt to prove you turned them in.

You do not have to stand in line to return plates. In most NJ inspection stations you pull in at the exits and they will give you a receipt.

Good to know since my parents are leaving- would hate for them to have to pay this.
If EITHER of your parents are over 62 yrs old, they will get a discounted rate on the realty transfer fee.
