You may use the following points in your message:

  • S.B. 1307 saves money, conserves resources and brings newer classics and special-interest vehicles in line with similar license plates—such as Classic, Old Timer and Street Rod—which have already received an exemption from the state’s two plate requirement.
  • S.B. 1307 protects the aesthetic contours of cars and relieves vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes on original bumpers.
  • S.B. 1307 accommodates vehicles other than special-interest, many of which are not originally equipped with a designated place to display a front plate.
  • S.B. 1307 allows greater performance and styling equipment options for automotive enthusiasts in the state and the industry supporting their hobby.

Overview: Idaho has introduced SAN-supported legislation (S.B. 1307) to allow the display of only a single, rear-mounted license plate for all passenger vehicles. Current law only permits the display of a single rear-mounted plate for motor vehicles registered as a Classic, Old Timer or Street Rod. The bill awaits consideration in the Senate Transportation Committee.
