QQ plates in NJ?

I recently got insurance through Haggerty for my '72 in NJ, what must I do to get QQ plates to avoid having to go through full inspection and stuff?

Exclamation Re: QQ plates in NJ?

I just got plates (QQ historical) for my 65 SS and I did NOT have to take it to inspection for any reason . Insurance was thru American Collectors (just had to have a few pictures).

Drive up to Trenton one day and get the tags, it takes all of about 15 minutes. You have to go to the office at 250 E. State Street to get the historic plates. You can also do it via mail but it takes longer. FYI, you CANNOT get QQ plates at just any local DMV. I still need to go up there and get the tags for the Charger.

Normal QQ plates 3-6 weeks. Vanity QQ plates about 6-10 weeks.

Yep, and they won't tell you over the phone if you call and ask, if a particular one is taken. I tried that with the plates I want for the Charger. They said I have to go there in person to find out.

Re: QQ plates in NJ?

Typical jersey BS. I lived there for 18 years, and haven't been back since I left. We can do all plate changes, check on vanity plates, everything except title transfers online. Of course tags here cost way to much, my 1 year old truck is now down to $560 for the 08 plate.

Re: QQ plates in NJ?

From what i remember there were quite a few restrictions with QQ plates. No driving at night.Can only be driven in Parades or club events.No driving to work ect. I may be mistaken but thats what i recall when i lived there. Same for Antique plates in Pa.

They say that, but no one enforces it.

That all depends on what the driver and the car look like (older driver, original looking car=, younger driver-souped up car=). It 's a general observation only.

Re: QQ plates in NJ?

In the 8 years my 70 has been tagged, I've never been bothered and I'm 27. I don't use it every day, just randomly when it's nice out, I'll drive it to work. I've also gotten tired of other morons on the road trying to engage me in that car so I have cut back on how often I drive it. I don't need that hassle.

Re: QQ plates in NJ?

Do yourself a favor......Go to the NJ DMV website and look at collector vehicle. you go to the DMV pay 35$, go to the inspection station and they verify your odometer works. there is no inspection and you are limited to 2000 miles a year. you get the benefits of QQ but dont have to go through the hastle of getting them. I did this on my 67 after it failed emissions on a brand new engine. it literally took me 5 minutes to get the collector sticker. also where in NJ are you from. I am in Blairstown in warren county.

if it's broke and you can't fix it.....get a bigger hammer

You don't have to go to Trenton, your local DMV office will have the papers.....
