North Carolina Bill to Expand Eligibility for Antique Vehicle Registration Sent to Governor

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact Governor Roy Cooper to request support for H.B. 100:

You may use the following points in your message:

  • H.B. 100 lowers the age for vehicles to be eligible for antique registration plates from 35 years old to 30 years old.  
  • H.B. 100 recognizes the historic value of vintage vehicles and would allow more North Carolinians to pursue the automotive hobby.
  • H.B. 100 would bring the state in line with other states seeking to reward antique collectors and expand opportunities for these prized vehicles to be enjoyed.

Legislation (H.B. 100) has been introduced that would lower the age of vehicles eligible for an antique registration plate to 30 years old. Current law only authorizes owners of vehicles that are at least 35 years from the date of manufacture. Owners with a vehicle 1943 model year or older will retain the option of choosing "Antique" or "Horseless Carriage" plates. The bill passed the North Carolina legislature and now goes to Governor Roy Cooper for approval.
