New York reintroduces bill for one-time registration fee

New York Reintroduces Bill to Provide for One-Time Historic Vehicle Registration Fee

Legislation has been reintroduced in the New York Senate (S.B. 1899) to provide that historical vehicle owners only pay a one-time registration fee of $100 upon initial registration.  The bill has been referred to the New York Senate Transportation Committee for consideration.  The bill was approved by the full Senate last session, but died in the Assembly when the legislature adjourned for the year.

We Urge You to Contact Senate Transportation Committee Members (List Attached) Immediately to Request Their Support for S.B. 1899

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.
DON’T DELAY!  Please contact members of the New York Senate Transportation Committee immediately by phone or e-mail to request their support for S.B. 1899.

One thought on “New York reintroduces bill for one-time registration fee

    Maybe the senate could introduce this bill into all 48 states,and level the playing field.This would give vintage vehicle restorers a little break on expenses incurred through restorations.This might also help the small business community{independent parts suppliers} who rely on restoration shops and ambitious individuals who are trying to perform restorations on a limited budget.
