Michigan Bill Would Exempt Certain Historic Military Vehicles From License Plate Requirement

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

Legislation has been introduced in the Michigan Senate to exempt historic military vehicles from the requirement that they display a license plate unless the vehicle was originally manufactured with lighting and mounting provisions for a plate. Under the bill, if the plate is not attached to the exterior of the historic military vehicle, it must be present in the vehicle and available upon demand by law-enforcement officers. 

In Michigan, "historic military vehicle" means a vehicle, including a trailer, regardless of the vehicle's size, weight or year of manufacture, that was manufactured for use in any country's military forces and is maintained to represent its military design and markings accurately.
