Surrendering license plates after moving out of state (Mike Larry doesn't wanna)

I moved from NY to CA and just had my plates changed. I'm in the process of having my old car insurance policy canceled and was informed that NY would charge me a penalty for having my NY registration uninsured unless I turn in my plates.

I looked into the process and I can do it by mail, but I just don't really want to, mainly because I'd rather keep the plates for nostalgic reasons if possible. Anyone familiar with this process? How likely is it that NY would come down hard on me? I'm thinking that, if they can even track my CA address down, I'm just ignore the fines like a jerkoff.

Whenever I surrendered plates in NY, I would just give them 1 tag and keep the other. I would just say the other one fell off or is lost. No problems.

Idt Mike Larry is keeping it on the car, CA requires two plates anyway. I have tons of old plates, and though you're supposed to turn them in in almost every state, I've never heard of any followup whatsoever.

Lol. I've tossed my license plates in VA every time I've changed plate characters. VA gives its drivers the option to return them or keep them.

Quote:
Under Virginia Law you must remove your license plates when selling you vehicle. You may transfer your plates to any replacement vehicle, or return them to any DMV Customer Service Center where they will be recycled, or you may destroy them and dispose of them yourself. However, you must notify the Department that you no longer own the vehicle. You can do this online, by phone or at a DMV Customer Service Center.

If you move out of Virginia, you do not have to surrender your plates to the Virginia DMV, but this is recommended. After you have moved, send your plates to:

Virginia DMV
Attn: Titles and Registration Work Center
P.O. Box 27412
Richmond, Virginia 23269

You can also take your plates to any DMV Customer Service Center. You may be entitled for a refund of your registration fees if you have at least 6 months remaining on your registration when you surrender your plates.

I don't understand this. Informed by whom? The insurer is telling you this? They want your old plates (supposedly on your vehicle) to have insurance coverage... or NY will charge you a penalty for... what? Not returning them?

That's just stupid.

if you want to play, tell them hey, who knew, you got new plates in CA, and tossed the old NY plates. Now you're getting new insurance coverage, and one has not a goddamned thing to do with the other. You're golden with California DMV (pun intended), and if the insurer is questioning that, tell the agent they can go to the dump and find your old plates.

Correct. In NY, you cannot cancel your car insurance without proof of plate surrender. Dealt with that when my pops moved from NY to NJ.

You can get around that; Stop paying the insurance bill and they will cancel it for you.

Not sure what your point is...OP moved and wants to cancel his insurance. In NY, you must surrender plates to cancel insurance. Not paying said insurance not only dings your insurance record (as well as getting you tossed from an insurance company, increasing your rates basically for life) but you still have to return plates. There is no way around it...NY makes you turn in your plates, and they have a number of measures to make sure you do it.

hence he has to turn in his plates, the same scenario , whether he tries to cancel it or lets it cancel

Trying to cancel he will just be unsuccessful and it will cost him a few bucks while he actually surrenders his plates. Lets it get cancelled results in being kicked off from insurance, dinging your history for life, and a massive fine from the state for having a plated vehicle without insurance. It's not the same thing. I'm also fairly certain you can mail in old plates.
