URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
New Hampshire Bill to Expand Year-of-Manufacture Plates Law Approved by Committee; Moves to Senate Floor
Legislation (H.B. 1183) to expand the range of vehicles eligible to use original year-of-manufacture license plates on antique motor vehicles was approved by the New Hampshire Senate Transportation Committee and now moves to vote by the full Senate. The bill has already been passed by the House of Representatives. Currently, only 1960 and earlier model year antique vehicles are eligible to use these plates. Under the bill, eligibility would be expanded to include all 1975 and earlier model years.
We Urge You to Contact All Members of the New Hampshire Senate (Contact Info Below) Immediately to Request Support for H.B. 1183
- In New Hampshire, an antique motor vehicle or motorcycle is “any motor vehicle over 25 years old which is maintained for use in exhibitions, club activities, parades and other functions of public interest.”
- Under New Hampshire law, to use year-of manufacture plates the registration plate matching the registration certificate must be carried within the antique motor vehicle. Antique motor vehicles bearing a registration plate with the year of manufacture must also carry, within it, a valid antique motor vehicle registration certificate and permit.
- Under a Senate Transportation Committee amendment, the number on the antique plate must not be in use on another motor vehicle, motorcycle or trailer.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact all members of the New Hampshire Senate to request support for H.B. 1183.
