  • As exempt motor vehicles are not subject to inspection, no certificates of approval (windshield “stickers”) are issued for them to display.  On occasion, the operators of these exempt vehicles are stopped by law enforcement because there is no certificate of approval affixed to their windshield.  As a result, the owners of these vehicles must carry all the documentation that is needed to prove their exempt status.  S.B. 1423 would eliminate that problem by requiring the motor vehicle commission to issue a certificate of exemption for display on these vehicles.

Overview:  Legislation (S.B. 1423) to require the motor vehicle commission to issue exempt certificates for motor vehicles not required to be inspected was approved by the Senate Transportation Committee.  Under current law, motorcycles, registered historic motor vehicles, motor vehicles designated as collector vehicles, and certain diesel-powered passenger motor vehicles built before the 1997 model year are exempt from emissions inspections and equipment inspections.  The bill will next be considered by the Budget and Appropriations Committee.
