DeAngelo, Mosquera, Wisniewski & Mukherji Bill Creating Veterans Motorcycle License Plates Now Law

August 7, 2017

(TRENTON) - Bipartisan legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Wayne DeAngelo, Gabriela Mosquera, John Wisniewski and Raj Mukherji to create special motorcycle license plates for veterans has been signed into law.

"Veterans take pride in having served their country, and they ought to be able to express that in as many ways as possible," said DeAngelo (D-Mercer/Middlesex). "With this law, New Jersey will join several states across the nation in making special license plates available to veterans who ride motorcycles."

"While those who have personal or commercial vehicles can drive and proclaim their affiliation with the greatest military on earth, motorcyclists in New Jersey do not have that option," said Mosquera (D-Camden/Gloucester). "Establishing veterans license plates for motorcycles is another way for our state to show its reverence for those who served."

The law (A-2729) establishes license plates for veterans who own or lease a motorcycle. Under the law, veterans who were honorably discharged may apply for the plates. 

"Not only will this enable motorcycle enthusiasts to show their pride in their service to their country, but it will also help support many worthwhile programs that benefit veterans," said Wisniewski (D-Middlesex), Chair of the Assembly Transportation Committee.

"Veterans motorcycle clubs are very popular and I know many of them would display these plates as a badge of honor," said Mukherji (D-Hudson), a U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Sergeant. "This is a unique way to pay tribute to their service and support their needs."

The $50 special application fee would be in addition to the normal Motor Vehicle Commission registration fee and would be deposited in the "Military Veteran Motorcycle License Plate Fund," which would be used to support programs benefiting military veterans. MVC thereafter would collect a $10 annual fee for the plates.

The law allows surviving spouses of deceased veterans to retain the plates.
