Governor Jerry Brown signed into law legislation (S.B. 1429) to expand the authorization of year-of-manufacture license plates to include owners of ’80 or older model-year vehicles.
   

Legislation (S.B. 1429) to expand the authorization of year-of-manufacture license plates to include owners of ’80 or older model-year vehicles was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown. Previous law only authorized owners of vehicles that are of a ’69 or older model-year or owners of a commercial vehicle or pickup that is ’72 or older to utilize California year-of-manufacture license plates. These plates must be legible and serviceable. 

Under the new law, the state may consult with an organization of old-car hobbyists in determining whether the date of year of the license plate corresponds to the model-year date when the vehicle was manufactured. A fee of $45 will be charged for the application for the use of the special plates.
