Various people on the Internet say if you buy a car in
December or January, you're supposed to get an October plate
with a slight prorated discount.
Data point: I bought a used car in December 2005, and the plates
my insurance agent gave me for it expire in September. It did
come with a discount, although I'm not sure what the exact number
worked out to be. I think it was more or less prorated for the
fact that the plates expired early (Sept. rather than Dec. '07).
I think it's mostly a case of what the RMV office or insurance
agent happens to have around the office at the time.
