Victory in Virginia: Bill to Title Military Surplus Off-Road Vehicles Becomes Law
Good News, Governor Ralph Northam signed pro-hobby legislation (H.B. 1323) into a law! The new law will allow qualifying military vehicles to be registered and operated on public roadways as “antiques”. In Virginia, a “military surplus off-road motor vehicle" is defined as a High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (or HMMWV, a vehicle more commonly known as a Humvee) that was manufactured by or under the direction of the United States Armed Forces and subsequently authorized for sale to civilians. Additionally, a favorable amendment was made to allow currently registered military vehicles to retain registration without the “antique” designation.
Special thanks to those who voiced support for your role in this legislative win!
