New York becomes first state to require license plates
April 25, 1901

New York became the first state to require license plates by law. Owners of automobiles were obliged to register their names and addresses along with a description of their vehicle with the office of the secretary of state. The state sent each owner a small license plate, at least three inches high, which bore the owner's initials. The fee to register an automobile was one dollar. In 1901, the state received $954 in registration fees.
