When I went to the BMV for my annual validation sticker I was asked if I wanted to get new license plates. Then I was asked about the condition of those that I have, if they were readable, damaged, and if I had both plates. This was the first time that I've ever been asked these questions. With the exception of when I bought my first Jeep and purchased personalized plates, I have had the same license plates for years. I just transferred registration to the new vehicle. Even though the cost is about the same to do this I decided not to get new ones. Do you get new license plates each year? Is there a regulation in place where you are required to get new ones?
