Utah Signs into Law Military Vehicle License Plate Exemption Bill

Success in Utah! Governor Spencer Cox signed into law SAN-supported legislation (S.B. 77) to exempt military vehicles from the requirement to display a license plate. To qualify, the license plate would have to be carried inside the vehicle and ready for inspection by law enforcement upon request. Prior to the new law, all vehicles always were required to display two license plates.

The new law defines a military vehicle as a vehicle of any size or weight that was manufactured for use by armed forces and that is maintained in a condition that represents the vehicle’s military design and markings regardless of current ownership or use. Additionally, it recognizes important historical and patriotic purpose of military vehicles, which are becoming valued collectors’ items among the automotive community. The new law is expected to go into effect May 4th.

Congratulations and thank you to those who supported this effort!
