  • H.B. 188 defines a "specialty kit car" as a motor vehicle that is assembled by the purchaser or a third party from a set of parts that are produced and sold by a manufacturer.
  • H.B. 188 provides that the owner or operator of a specialty kit car, who pays a fee of $150 may display a license plate on the rear only. 
  • H.B. 188 would conserve resources and bring Ohio in line with other states that have moved to a single plate requirement.
  • H.B. 188 would protect the aesthetic contours of specialty kit cars and relieve vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes on some original bumpers.

Overview: Legislation (H.B. 188) to allow the issuance of only a single rear license plate for specialty kit cars was introduced.  Owners or operators choosing the single plate option would be required to pay a $150 fee.
