RT NYS License Plates

Attention ALL NYS RT’s,

The AARC, NYDART and the NYSSRC are proud to announce the RT NYS license plate. The plates are available now. The DMV will be able to assist you now.

NY RT License Plate

Let’s Get Plated


  1. The NYS RT license plates were requested by several of the NYS RT’s.
  2. The NYSSRC did a poll to all members through AARC connect, and we found a great interest.
  3. The NYS customized plates require a bond of $6000 for creating the plates. This bond will be released if 200 plates are sold within a 24-month period.
  4. The AARC offered to front the bond money of $6000.
  5. The NYSSRC BOD and the NYDART both agreed (through a contract with the AARC) to cut the costs of the $6000 (equally) if the plates don’t sell.
  6. The AARC’s graphics / marketing department created the logo for our plates… and approved by NYSSRC BOD and NYDART.
  7. The AARC submitted the application and designed plates to NYS DMV.
  8. The AARC has been the point person for our application and submission.
  9. The plate design was approved from the NYS DMV… and will be available starting August 4, 2021.
  10. The complete process took about 6 months!

A huge thank you must go out to the following:

  • AARC
  • Sherry Tooley, AARC President
  • Felix Khusid, NYDART
  • Thomas R. Harvie representing the NYSSRC BOD
  • And especially to Jena Weeter, AARC Board of Directors Liaison/Board of Medical Advisors Liaison. If it weren’t for Jena orchestrating all of this… it would have such a bigger challenge!
