Maryland Bill to Create Special Vintage Reproduction License Plates

Legislation (H.B. 977) to require the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) to provide, for one year, a specially designed vintage reproduction registration plate to qualifying vehicle owners is moving through the legislative process in Maryland.  Under the bill, to be eligible to receive a vintage reproduction registration plate, the vehicle must be a Class A (passenger), Class E (small truck), Class L (historic), Class M (multipurpose), or Class N (street rod) vehicle. The vintage reproduction plate would be designed to resemble the 1910 Maryland registration plate, which has black lettering on a yellow background. The bill requires MVA to set initial registration and renewal fees.  The bill will soon be considered by the entire House of Delegates.

We Urge You to Contact All Members of the Maryland House of Delegates (Contact Info Below) Immediately to Request Support for H.B. 977

  • H.B. 977 would bring a retro look to modern license plates by allowing consumers to use the reproduction 1910 plates.    
  • H.B. 977 would give consumers a new option on the license plates to use on their vehicles and provide historic car owners a voluntary means to acquire new plates that match the vintage look of their vehicles.
  • H.B. 977 estimates that the additional cost to obtain the plates would be $20 and would take effect January 1, 2014.

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact members of the Maryland House of Delegates immediately by e-mail to request their support for H.B. 977.
