                               2017-2018 Regular Sessions
                   IN ASSEMBLY
                                    January 20, 2017
        Introduced  by  M. of A. ENGLEBRIGHT, McDONOUGH -- Multi-Sponsored by --
          M. of A. KOLB -- read once and referred to the Committee on  Transpor-
        AN  ACT  to  amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to permanent
          registration of historical motor vehicles

          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
     1    Section  1.  Schedule G of subdivision 7 of section 401 of the vehicle
     2  and traffic law, as amended by section 25 of part G of chapter 59 of the
     3  laws of 2009, is amended to read as follows:
     4    G. Schedule for historical motor  vehicles.  For  each  motor  vehicle
     5  which  is  owned and operated as an exhibition piece or collectors item,
     6  and is used  for  participation  in  club  activities,  exhibit,  tours,
     7  parades,  occasional  transportation  and similar uses, but not used for
     8  general daily transportation, [an annual] a fee  of  [twenty-eight]  one
     9  hundred  dollars  [and  seventy-five cents] upon initial registration of
    10  such vehicle. Such historical  motor  vehicle  shall  remain  registered
    11  without  the  imposition of any other fee until such time as the vehicle
    12  is sold or otherwise transferred, at which time a new  registration  and
    13  fee  shall  be  required.   For purposes of this paragraph, a historical
    14  motor vehicle shall mean any vehicle manufactured more than  twenty-five
    15  years  prior to the current calendar year, and any other model, year and
    16  type vehicle which has unique characteristics and which is determined by
    17  the commissioner to be  of  historical,  classic  or  exhibition  value.
    18  Registration  plates  for  such  vehicles  shall be of a type and design
    19  approved by the commissioner, but shall  be  of  a  distinctive  nature.
    20  Except that, with the approval of the commissioner, an owner of any such
    21  vehicle may utilize registration plates issued in the year corresponding
    22  to  the  model  year  date in which the vehicle was manufactured, if the
    23  registration plate is legible, durable, and serviceable, of this  state,
    24  and  accurate in color, as determined by the department. Nothing in this
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.

        A. 2405                             2
     1  paragraph shall be construed to prohibit the use  of  previously  issued
     2  registration  plates  that  have  been  restored, without deviation from
     3  their original alphanumeric or pictorial content, to such  condition  as
     4  otherwise  satisfies  all  applicable requirements. Such plates shall be
     5  used only for the operation of the motor vehicle listed on the registra-
     6  tion application and on other motor vehicles  which  would  qualify  for
     7  registration  under this schedule owned by persons other than the regis-
     8  trant for the purpose of test driving by the registrant or  his  or  her
     9  agent in anticipation of possible purchase. No such registration will be
    10  issued  unless  evidence  of financial security, in a form prescribed by
    11  the commissioner, is submitted which provides  coverage  for  the  motor
    12  vehicle  listed  on the registration application and for non-owned motor
    13  vehicles being operated with such plates.
    14    § 2. This act shall take effect on the first of January next  succeed-
    15  ing the date on which it shall have become a law.
