After the DMM suffix, DU series Used Car Dealer plates were issued starting at DUL in late 2015.
This is the first time we have seen the DU series issued, and there was at least one reverse-format prefix (DUT)

No other plates in the DV series have been seen.

By late 2020, it looks like the sequential used car dealer plates stopped.
This was probably the same time that the DAA-DKZ prefixes started being used.



DAA-DKZ PREFIXES
As of late 2020, prefixed in the DAA-DKZ series are now being used for USED CAR DLR plates.
(DAA through DKZ had previously been used for NEW CAR DLR plates ever since NEW and USED were split in 1960.)

There is still no general replacement of older plates - so any dealer plate issued since 1992 can still be on the road.
Plates with other prefixes are still being issued on the flat base.
We don't know why some of these plates have a single-digit car number and some use the leading zero (e.g. DPG-92 '9' and '09' below).

Courtesy dealer plates now have the car number in the upper right, like courtesy passenger plates.

ERROR
This plate has a font problem ... and a prefix problem ... and it's just plain wrong.
First, the DFQ prefix is out of range for used car dealers.
Second, the font on the DFQ and the car number "01" is wrong - and ugly.
Third, the spacing on the "33" is incorrect.

I am hoping that this is an error plate, or a test plate that somehow got out into circulation, or a pure fake,
because if New Jersey's plate font starts looking like this for real, I would be very disappointed.

I photographed this in January 2019. So far, I have not seen any others like it.
