NON-RESIDENT TEMPORARY PLATES 2012- Starting April 1st, 2012, a new system went online where dealers print temp tags on-demand.
Each one was registered in the MVC database and they are sequential across all dealers.

NON-RESIDENT - 20-day Expiration
Non-resident temporary plates have a serial number for the first time since the late 1970s - the new series starts at 000001N.
Might this be the only series of NJ plates to use leading zeroes ??

We don't know why most of the P series was skipped.
