The Rhode Island legislature approved a bill allowing the issuance of courtesy registration plates to vehicles more than 25 years old. Under the current law, “antique” plates are available for vehicles that are at least 25 years old and used only for exhibitions, parades and car club activities. Vehicles currently registered as “antique” may purchase and display replica year-of-manufacture plates with Division of Motor Vehicle approval. 

The bill will allow the DMV to issue rules covering the types of plates that can be issued using a combination of letters and numbers. The bill now heads to Governor Raimondo for approval.
