Around here, we’re used to drivers using their cars as a way to show off their personalities. All over New York State roads, we see vehicles covered with stickers, decals, flags, and other accessories to show their fellow drivers who they are and what they care about. 

Some New Yorkers even go above and beyond, and are willing to fork over the cash for a customized license plate. 

Registered New York State drivers can get a personalized license plate for their vehicles. The price depends on if the license plate number is assigned by DMV, or if the driver decides to personalize it, but a custom plate with an assigned number typically starts at $60 (plus an annual fee of $31.25).
