Overview: SAN-supported legislation (H.B. 1399 and H.B. 1482) has been introduced in North Dakota for the 2020 legislative session that benefit collector vehicle owners. H.B. 1482 lowers the age requirement for a vehicle to be registered as antique from at least 40 years old to at least 35 years old, as well as lowers the age requirement for a vehicle to be registered as a collector’s vehicle from at least 25 years old to at least 20 years old. H.B. 1399 allows a ‘collector’s title’ to be issued to an owner of a rebuilt, reconstructed, salvaged, antique, or vintage motor vehicle without a certificate of inspection. This title would not allow the vehicle to be operated on roadways. These pro-hobby bills currently await consideration in the House Transportation Committee.
