Utah Bill to Classify Vehicles 30 Years Old and Older as “Vintage Vehicles” Sent to Governor for Signature 

SEMA-supported legislation to allow vehicles 30 years old and older to be classified as “vintage vehicles” was approved by the Utah Senate, having already been ratified by the House. Currently, Utah reserves the vintage vehicle class only to vehicles 40 years old and older. Under the bill, vintage vehicles 30–40 years old would now be included in the class and be charged a $45 annual registration fee. When the vehicle reaches 40 years old, the registrant would pay a one-time $40 fee. Vintage vehicles are exempted from annual emissions and safety inspections. The bill now moves to Governor Gary Herbert for his signature and enactment into law.
