Can I keep my vehicle plates when transferring ownership?
I’m in NY.
My car has been in my dad’s name, for both the title and registration, for a long time. We want to transfer it to me now. Can I still keep the old plates on it when we transfer it to me? It’s a “gift”, no money exchanged for the car… Not a sale.
It would be nice to keep the old plates.
