Presented by Private Seller – It’s to be expected that something so unique and rare would come with skepticism. Can The World’s Most Expensive Volvo really be sold along with the only street-legal New York license plate in existence that reads ‘New York?’ Can the new owner really transfer the vanity plate to the vehicle of his or her choosing? The answer is yes and here’s the step-by-step guide to get it done.
Step 1: Bring the personalized plates to a DMV office. Surrender the personalized plates and request the DMV office to store the personalized plates. Make sure the DMV representative knows you request storage. You will receive a receipt (FS-6T) that indicates that the personalized plates are surrendered and stored.
Step 2: Give a photocopy of the FS-6T receipt to the person who will receive the personalized plates. Keep the original receipt.
Step 3: Send the following documents to the Custom Plates Unit:
A letter from the current owner of the personalized plates that states that all rights to the personalized plates are transferred to a new owner. The letter must include the letters and numbers of the personalized plates, the name of the new owner and the signature of the current owner.
A photocopy of the NYS photo driver license of the current personalized plate owner.
A photocopy of the registration document for the vehicle to which the personalized plates are being transferred.
A check or money order payable to Commissioner of Motor Vehicles for $35 if the stored personalized plates are Empire State plates.
Step 4: The Custom Plate Unit will mail registration documents and form MV-404 to the new personalized plate owner. To get the stored personalized plates, the new owner must bring the registration documents, form MV-404 and the photocopy of the FS-6T storage receipt to the same DMV office where the personalized plate were stored.
*Transferring the registration will be handled by counsel with all monies to be placed in escrow until the transaction is complete. This is being offered for sale by a private seller. The transaction will be completed by the buying and selling parties. NY DMV transfer fees will be paid by the seller.
