Montana Bill to Expand Single License Plate Usage Signed into Law
Success in Montana! SAN-supported legislation (H.B. 266) to mandate that the state issue waivers for vehicles unable to display a front license plate was signed into law by Governor Greg Gianforte. Current law permits the display of a single rear-mounted plate for motor vehicles registered as a street rod or custom vehicle, and a waiver may be issued for vehicles unable to display a front plate. The new law requires the waiver to be issued.
The new law protects the aesthetic contours of vehicles and relieve the burden of having to create mounting holes on original bumpers. It also accommodates additional classic and special-interest vehicles, many of which are not originally equipped with a designated place to display a front plate. The new law goes into effect October 1, 2021.
Congratulations and thank you to those who supported this effort!
