NO FEE (EXEMPT) PLATES 1930-1991
These are issued to vehicles owned by non-profit organizations, such as churches or the Red Cross.
They were also issued to some municipal vehicles and ambulances (until they got their own distinct plates in 2014).
No Fee plates were first issued in 1923.
Plates for that year were distributed to the NJ State Police (10 plates) and the Newark Police (13 plates).
