Bill to Provide for One-Time Historic Vehicle Registration Fee Approved by New York Senate

SEMA-supported legislation to provide historical vehicle owners a one-time registration fee of $100 upon initial registration was passed by the New York Senate. The bill will now be considered by the Assembly Transportation Committee. The reduced registration fee would be available to owners of historical vehicles owned and operated as an exhibition piece or collector’s item and used for club activities, exhibits, tours, parades, occasional transportation and similar uses. Under current New York law, a historical motor vehicle is either a vehicle manufactured more than 25 years ago or one that has unique characteristics and is determined to be of historical, classic or exhibition value. The $100 one-time fee would replace the current annual fee of $28.75.
