S.B. 1429 expands the authorization of year-of-manufacture license plates to include owners of 1980 or older model-year vehicles.
- 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 is charged for the application for the use of the special plates.
Overview: Legislation (S.B. 1429) to expand the authorization of year-of-manufacture license plates to include owners of 1980 or older model-year vehicles was approved by the California Assembly. The bill has already been approved by the California Senate and will now be sent to the governor for his signature and enactment into law. Current law only authorizes owners of vehicles that are of a 1969 or older model-year or owners of a commercial vehicle or pickup truck that is a 1972 or older to utilize California year-of-manufacture license plates. These plates must be legible and serviceable.
