No data, symbols background images, etc. shall appear in the area reserved for printing a compliant encrypted 2D bar code.
(h) Historical motor vehicle.
If the motor vehicle described on the ID card is to be registered as an historical motor vehicle, the word HISTORICAL must be computer-printed or machine-printed on the ID card. This indicates that coverage is provided not only for the motor vehicle described on the ID card but also for non-owned unregistered motor vehicles which would qualify for historical registration and which are operated by the registrant or his agent with the registration number plates assigned to the motor vehicle described on the ID card for the purpose of test driving in anticipation of possible purchase.

(j) Replacement vehicle.
If the motor vehicle described on an ID card is a replacement vehicle, the first issuance of such ID card shall contain the notation “REPLACEMENT VEHICLE”. A replacement vehicle is a motor vehicle that replaces a vehicle (the replaced vehicle) insured on an in force policy. A replacement vehicle is added to an in force policy on the same date that the replaced vehicle is deleted from said policy. This notation is required on the first issuance of vehicle specific ID cards required by this Part and non-vehicle specific ID cards issued in accordance with section 32.11(a) of this Part. Upon receipt of an ID card containing a “REPLACEMENT VEHICLE” notation:
(1) dealers registered under Part 78 of this Title shall not accept an ID card with the notation “REPLACEMENT VEHICLE” for an original registration; and
(2) DMV, its agents or any party authorized by the department to process registrations shall only process a reregistration (vehicle change) transaction using the replaced vehicle's current registration. Nothing herein shall preclude the issuance of replacement license plates in conjunction with any such reregistration transaction. A “REPLACEMENT VEHICLE” notation is not required for DMV to process a reregistration. A reregistration may be processed with or without a “REPLACEMENT VEHICLE” notation.
The “REPLACEMENT VEHICLE” notation shall appear on ID cards as follows:
(i) Permanent ID cards. The notation shall be computer-printed or machine-printed.
(ii) Temporary ID cards. The notation shall be computer-printed or machine-printed.
This subsection is not applicable to the New York State Insurance Identification Card 997-Self Insurer (FS-80) or ID cards issued for dealer and transporter registrations that are not vehicle specific.
A registrant may apply for an original registration upon surrender of registration items previously used for a replaced vehicle and presentation of an ID card without a “REPLACEMENT VEHICLE” notation.
