West Virginia Introduces Bill Easing Reconstructed Vehicle Registration
DON’T DELAY! Please contact the Senate Transportation Committee to request their support for S.B. 34:
- S.B. 34 removes the requirement of vehicle inspections for reconstructed vehicles unless structural parts were replaced
- S.B. 34 reduces the burden for hobbyists attempting to title and register their reconstructed vehicles.
Overview: Legislation (S.B. 34) removes the requirement that a reconstructed vehicle be inspected before being titled or registered provided that no structural parts were replaced on the vehicle. In West Virginia, under current law, "Reconstructed vehicle" means every vehicle of a type required to be registered hereunder materially altered from its original construction by the removal, addition or substitution of essential parts, new or used. This bill is currently in the Senate Transpiration Committee.
