Rhode Island Bill to Allow Replica Year of Manufacture License Plates Signed Into Law

Legislation (S.B. 2936) to authorize the Division of Motor Vehicles to issue replica year of manufacture plates for antique vehicles was signed into law by Governor Lincoln Chafee. In Rhode Island, an antique motor car is “any motor vehicle which is more than twenty-five (25) years old. Unless fully inspected and meeting inspection requirements, the vehicle may be maintained solely for use in exhibitions, club activities, parades, and other functions of public interest and may not be used primarily for the transportation of passengers or goods over any public highway.”

Thank you to all who participated in supporting this bill.
