H.B. 1323 allows military surplus off-road vehicles to be registered as antiques.
H.B. 1323 defines a “military surplus off-road motor vehicle" as a High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (or HMMWV, a vehicle more commonly known as a Humvee) that was manufactured by or under the direction of the United States Armed Forces and subsequently authorized for sale to civilians
Under current Virginia law, “antique” vehicle registration is available for vehicles that are at least 25 years old and not used for general transportation.
Overview: Virginia legislation (H.B. 1323) allows qualifying military vehicles to be registered and operated on public roadways as “antiques”. This bill received a favorable amendment in the Senate Transportation Committee to allow currently registered military vehicles to retain registration without the “antique” designation. The bill awaits a final vote on the Senate Floor.
