Legislation to include trucks more than 25 years old (regardless of weight) in the definition of eligible “Antique Motor Vehicles” was approved by the full New Hampshire Senate. Having already been approved by the House, the bill will now be sent to the governor for her signature and enactment into law.
The bill provides the option for older trucks to take advantage of the many accommodations available to antique motor vehicles. Under New Hampshire law, antique motor vehicles pay a minimal registration fee. In addition, antiques are only inspected every two years, can use year-of-manufacture license plates and are exempted from certain equipment requirements. Antique motor vehicles may be used in exhibitions, club activities, parades and other functions of public interest.
