Wisconsin Legislature Approves Amended Motor Vehicle Registration Rights Bill; Moves to Governor


Legislation (S.B. 462) that originally sought to provide legal registration to hobby vehicles with a clear title, required safety equipment and in good working order was passed by the Wisconsin Senate and House and now moves to the governor for his signature and enactment into law.  Due to opposition from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the bill was amended to now only affect Former Military Vehicles.  Several pro-hobby provisions of the bill with application to all hobby vehicles were eliminated.  While the amended bill does not solve the many problems associated with registering a hobby car in Wisconsin, it does provide incremental improvement to the rules governing Former Military Vehicles and is still worthy of our support.   

We Urge You to Contact Governor Scott Walker (Contact Info Below) Immediately to Request His Support for S.B. 462

  • S.B. 462 restores regular registration options to Former Military Vehicles, like those which are available to civilian vehicles.  Operation under that registration remains subject to Wisconsin Equipment Standards.
  • S.B. 462 does not change an owner’s ability to register Former Military Vehicles for Historic Military Vehicle (HMV) Registration, which allows operation to parades or shows.

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact Governor Scott Walker immediately to request his support for S.B. 462.
