Maryland Bill to Allow Single License Plate for Hobby Cars Goes To Governor


Compromise legislation (H.B. 524) to allow the issuance of only a single license plate to historic vehicles and street rods was approved by the House and Senate and sent to the governor for his signature and enactment into law.  Under the compromise bill, historic vehicles and street rods that are 50-years old and older would be eligible to run a single plate.  While this is not the bill we wanted, we believe it is still worthy of your support.

We Urge You to Contact Governor Larry Hogan (Contact Info Below) Immediately To Request Support for H.B. 524

  • While the amended H.B. 524 is heavily diluted, it is still an improvement over current law.
  • H.B. 524 would save money, conserve resources and bring Maryland in line with other states that are moving to a single plate requirement for certain cars.
  • H.B. 524 would protect the aesthetic contours of some collector cars and relieve vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes on some original bumpers.

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact Governor Larry Hogan to request his support of H.B. 524.    

Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts.  Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance.
