NJ QQ Plates

One of my neighbors is a cop and I noticed that he doesn't have a plate on the front of his 1974 Vette, but he has a QQ plate on the rear. So I asked him about it and he said that you don't need a front license plate if you have QQ plates. So I did some digging and here's what I found.

Historic vehicles
General inspections are not required for historic or collector vehicles. To be classified as a "historic vehicle" it must be:

* At least 25 years old
* Used only for exhibition purposes or manufactured before 1945
* Specially registered with a QQ plate displayed on the rear of the vehicle
I found this HERE

It's less than definitive but I found it interesting. Did anyone else know this?

Yes, they limit you to 3,000 miles a year and the vehicle is supposed to be principally used for shows and parades. I found a link to the acutal Bill and it seems to back up only needing one plate.

Yeah, QQ Plates really is the way to go. One of these days the state is going to figure out what their missing out on and then we're screwed. It's actually only $25 for the lifetime registration, no emission and no inspection for those who are unaware. The reason I started this thread was to see if anyone else can confirm not needing the rear license plate.

All you do is hit "screen print" on your keyboard, open "PAINT" and hit "edit" and "paste". Save the image as a jpg, and your set.

I believe the original intent of the law was to cover the older vehicles, Model T's etc., that only had mounting provision for a plate on the back. It could be over ridden by the law requiring two plates if so equipt.

I'm sure if they wanted to be tough they could hassel you, but they don't. Most Corvettes in NJ don't use there front plate either, and they don't bother them either

Sorry to bump up an old thread but I was searching around and thought I'd offer the correct info:

Historic vehicles
General inspections are not required for historic or collector vehicles. To be classified as a "historic vehicle" it must be:
At least 25 years old
Specially registered and display QQ plates (1945 and earlier models are required to displayone plateon the rear of the vehicle. 1946 and newer models will be issued two plates and both plates must be displayed, 1 on the front and one on the back of the vehicle).

From

http://www.state.nj.us/mvc/Inspectio...clesExempt.htm

So you have to run both.

Front Plate

That is interesting because the MV agent in Trenton told me that you only have to display 1 QQ plate---on the back of the car. I asked why they were two plates in the envelope and she said that is how the state makes them. But it is obvious, by the law, that would be incorrect, as I have no vehicles with registered QQ tags that are older than 1945. You would think they would brief their agents on the law.....

To get them fastest you have to go to the special plates division in Trenton on a weekday. YOU CANNOT GO ON A WEEKEND. The Trenton DMV is open but the special plates division is not. Local DMVs will steer you wrong. Learned this the hard way.

You can mail away and get them. I did this in February. It may take a few weeks to get them, with more time being needed if you get courtesy plates.
