Iowa Reintroduces Bill to Reduce Registration Fee for Limited-Mileage Antique Motor Vehicles


A SEMA-supported bill has been reintroduced in the Iowa Legislature to allow ’64 or older motor vehicles to be registered as “limited-mileage” antique vehicles for an annual fee of $10. Vehicle owners taking advantage of this registration class are permitted to drive these vehicles up to 2,500 miles annually. Currently, antique vehicles undergoing the registration process in Iowa for the first time are required to pay an annual $50 registration fee. The measure stipulates that the owner must certify with the annual application for registration that the mileage limit will be observed. The bill also allows the owner of a "limited-mileage" antique vehicle to display authentic model-year registration plates that are registered with the department as the current and valid registration plates for the vehicle. The model-year plates must be furnished by the owner and approved by the department to serve as the vehicle's regular registration plates.
