    NY state has a law that says, if you live in New York state, or move to the state, you have 60 days to transfer
    your drivers license, and change your vehicle's registration over to New York state. A local police officer that I
    am friends with, said he would not stop me, and most of the local police that i have been seen by, I know this because
    I caught them looking, didn't seem to care, they see an out of state plate, as long as it is legal with the 2022 sticker on the plate, they don't care. I would like to say that I took my truck to Vermont to prove a point, and to see first hand how the system worked, point is, they could care less..

    NYS min insurance protection is higher than in VT so NYS insurance will be good enough BUT VT would be cheaper.

    In my area a lot of people have Vermont plates. It's a non issue here

    If you register your vehicle in New York, you have to have New York insurance, Vermont, Vermont insurance, etc, etc,

    technically yes, however Vermont requires no proof of insurance, they just state you need it in the bylaws . You can obtain insurance from a NYS agent and it would cover... You could not cover a NYS vehicle with Vermont insurance since NYS requires insurance for registration... OR you could just tell your insurance agent that the vehicle is titled in Vermont and they could put it through most likely, if you are that worried about it

    Oh I’m not worried, my truck is registered and insured and inspected in Vermont, and I live in upstate NY.

    you don't have to worry about driving to VT to get it inspected. NYS or any other state has the authority to do an inspection on VT's behalf, or the other way around.. It's a loophole often used by New Jersey residents because NYS inspection is less strict than NJ

    Maybe years ago but NJ inspection is more or less this side of worthless .
    No safety and if 1995 or older no smog so 1995 or older no inspection needed , and 1996 is just s plug in OBD II smog test. No brakes,no windshield,no seatbelts, no problem you get a sticker cause your check engine light is off and it passes the readiness test

    Wanted to tell everyone about my day today, I took my Suzuki Carry out for a ride, got gas and thought i would drive down town. Nice Cool day, finished my ride on the way home, low and behold a police officer got behind me with my Vermont Plates, nine block later, he turned and was gone. I will admit I was a bit worried, but had all my ducks in the glove box, very cool. I made it home no problems, had to take a heart pill, LOLOLOLOLOLO

    yes you can, they will most likely send you Antique plates. and with Antique plates, don't worry about inspections

    you have to specify antique plates with the plate type number your requesting. No reason not to do antique plates anyway as it's $26 vs like $75 for regular

    Hello everyone, How is the world doing this fine day??? Never mind, I was pretending to be funny..LOLOLO.
    I hope everyone out there is doing fine. Did everyone get their shot, shots? I finally got my shots, first one was great, no problems, second one put in bed for a day, arm still hurts, not really, just looking for those aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh's.
    I just wanted to say hello, and check in, please, be safe out there, for those of you in a uniform, please be extra careful.
    As for the rest of the world, lets get the mini's cleaned up, charge up the battery , check the tire pressure, check the oil, antifreeze, check the lights, and pick a day to RUMBLEEEEE.

    haha, try driving an Ontario licensed mini across the border into the States. I pulled up, rolled down my LH window from the right side, border gaurd says "why are you driving a right hand drive vehicle?" I replied, "because I can?" It went downhill from there, but after 30 minutes I drove into New York State. No problem going back into Canada a couple hours later. I now get stopped every time I take it across
