“New York State requires drivers who don’t have valid car insurance to immediately turn in their license plates. This means that no, you can’t get plates without insurance in New York.
While different states have different requirements, most of them require you to have a current car insurance policy when registering your vehicle. Then you’ll receive your license plates and registration card. “
