Legislation (H.B. 263/S.B. 283) to allow antique vehicles to be driven up to 5,000 miles per year for general transportation failed to pass before the Tennessee legislature adjourned for 2019. 

Under current law, antique vehicles may be driven to and from club activities, exhibits, tours and parades; for the purpose of testing the operation of and obtaining repairs; and for general transportation only on Saturday and Sunday. 

These bills recognized that the collection and restoration of historic and classic cars is an important part of preserving the technological achievements and cultural heritage of the United States.  By rule, these bills are eligible to be reconsidered during next year’s legislative session.
