       AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to registration
         fees for historic vehicles
    1    Section  1.  Schedule G of subdivision 7 of section 401 of the vehicle
    2  and traffic law, as amended by section 25 of part G of chapter 59 of the
    3  laws of 2009, is amended to read as follows:
    4    G. Schedule for historical motor  vehicles.  For  each  motor  vehicle
    5  which  is  owned and operated as an exhibition piece or collectors item,
    6  and is used  for  participation  in  club  activities,  exhibit,  tours,
    7  parades,  occasional  transportation  and similar uses, but not used for
    8  general daily transportation, [an annual fee of twenty-eight dollars and
    9  seventy-five cents] A ONE TIME FEE OF ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS. For  purposes
   10  of  this  paragraph,  a  historical motor vehicle shall mean any vehicle
   11  manufactured more than twenty-five years prior to the  current  calendar
   12  year,  and any other model, year and type vehicle which has unique char-
   13  acteristics and which is determined by the commissioner to be of histor-
   14  ical, classic or exhibition value.  Registration plates for  such  vehi-
   15  cles  shall  be  of  a type and design approved by the commissioner, but
   16  shall be of a distinctive nature.  Except that, with the approval of the
   17  commissioner, an owner of any  such  vehicle  may  utilize  registration
   18  plates  issued in the year corresponding to the model year date in which
   19  the vehicle was manufactured, if  the  registration  plate  is  legible,
   20  durable,  and  serviceable,  of  this  state,  and accurate in color, as
   21  determined by  the  department.  Nothing  in  this  paragraph  shall  be
   22  construed  to  prohibit the use of previously issued registration plates
   23  that have been restored, without deviation from their original  alphanu-
   24  meric or pictorial content, to such condition as otherwise satisfies all
   25  applicable  requirements.  Such plates shall be used only for the opera-

    1  tion of the motor vehicle listed on the registration application and  on
    2  other  motor  vehicles  which  would qualify for registration under this
    3  schedule owned by persons other than the registrant for the  purpose  of
    4  test  driving  by  the registrant or his or her agent in anticipation of
    5  possible purchase. No such registration will be issued  unless  evidence
    6  of  financial  security,  in  a  form prescribed by the commissioner, is
    7  submitted which provides coverage for the motor vehicle  listed  on  the
    8  registration application and for non-owned motor vehicles being operated
    9  with such plates.
   10    S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
