Wisconsin Assembly Joins Senate in Introducing Motor Vehicle Registration Rights Bill

Legislation has been introduced in the Wisconsin Assembly to provide legal registration to hobby vehicles with a clear title, required safety equipment and in good working order. Under the bill, these registrations would be available to owners regardless of the vehicle’s color, former owner, or previous uses. Identical legislation has already been introduced in the Senate. The bills ensure that all vehicles, including ones that predate Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) or are specifically exempted from them, are not denied registration or forced into a highly restrictive registration class, for non-compliance with FMVSS. This includes pre-’68 vehicles, imports, kit cars, government surplus vehicles, etc.
