Legislation to provide that antique vehicles and expanded-use antique vehicles are required to display registration plates only on the rear of the vehicle died when the legislature adjourned for the year.

   

Without having been given committee consideration, legislation to provide that antique vehicles and expanded-use antique vehicles are required to display registration plates only on the rear of the vehicle died when the legislature adjourned for the year. The bill also allowed expanded-use antique vehicles to be operated year-round with no restriction on destination or purpose.

Under current law, expanded-use antique vehicles can be only driven without limitation during the warmer part of the year (April 1 through October 31). They are limited to traveling to and from car shows, exhibitions, servicing or demonstration during the colder months (November 1 through March 31). Under the bill, the expanded-use antique registration plate would have been available at an annual fee of $45.
