You can personalize your license plates for a one-time fee of $50. An additional $50 fee is applied to reactivate the personalized plates in the event that the registration is expired for a period of more than two years.
Personalized plates will be issued to the registered owner as shown on the Personalized License Plate Application (Form SP-1). A $50 fee is applied to reissue the plates to a person other than the registered owner.
These plates can be ordered online (MyMVC account number required), unless the vehicle is leased. In this case, please contact the MVC’s Special Plates Unit at 609-292-6500 ext. 5061.
You can also download the Personalized License Plate Application (Form SP-1) and either send it through the mail or bring it to a motor vehicle agency to complete the request. If submitting through the mail, send the application along with a check or money order for $50 payable to the NJMVC to:
New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission
Special Plate Unit
PO Box 15
Trenton, NJ 08666-0015
A personalized plate must have at least three letters and a maximum of seven characters in combination of letters and numbers. More details are available on the Information About Personalized License Plates (Form SP-2).
