The reduced registration fee would be available to owners of historical vehicles owned and operated as an exhibition piece or collector’s item and used for club activities, exhibits, tours, parades, occasional transportation and similar uses.
Under current New York law, a historical motor vehicle is either a vehicle manufactured more than 25 years ago or one which has unique characteristics and which is determined to be of historical, classic or exhibition value.
The $100 one-time fee would replace the current annual fee of $28.75. Contact members of the New York Senate Transportation Committee immediately by phone and / or e-mail to request their support for S.B. 1899.
