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

Legislation has been reintroduced in the New York Assembly (A.B. 4459) 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 Assembly Transportation Committee for consideration.     

We Urge You to Contact Assembly Transportation Committee Members (List Attached) Immediately to Request Their Support for A.B. 4459

  • 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 Assembly Transportation Committee immediately by phone or e-mail to request their support for A.B. 4459
