Nevada classic vehicle registration bill to be withdrawn

After several conversations with SEMA Action Network (SAN) staff and members of the collector car hobby in Nevada, legislation (S.B. 152) to alter the registration requirements for “classic” vehicles will be withdrawn for the year by the bill’s sponsor. Under the bill, the holder of a classic vehicle license plate seeking an emissions inspection exemption would have been required to verify the odometer reading of the vehicle. These verifications would have been completed for a fee by an approved inspector at certain emissions compliance stations to determine that the vehicle was driven less than 5,000 miles the previous year. The bill also required proof that the vehicle was covered only by a collector motor vehicle liability policy.
