Following a statewide survey, the New York Department of Motor Vehicles has announced the new plate design.
325,000 New Yorkers participated in the survey, with approximately half of those casting votes favoring the winning design. Featured on the new plates are Niagara Falls, the Statue of Liberty, and the Montauk Lighthouse. The Latin word “Excelsior”, which translates as “Ever higher”, is also prominently displayed across the bottom of the new plates.
The new plates will be available for purchase in April 2020 at a cost of $25.
