Here’s New York’s new license plate design

ALBANY, N.Y. (WWNY) - Well, here it is: the winner of the statewide survey to find a new design for the New York state license plates.

The state says more than 325,000 New Yorkers participated in the survey.

The top vote-getter features the motto “Excelsior” with images of the Statue of Liberty, the New York City skyline, mountains and Niagara Falls.

The new design will officially be available to drivers next April.

Vehicle owners with license plates 10 years old or older will be issued the new ones for a $25 fee. If they want to keep their old plate numbers, that’ll be another $20.
