Current Bill Summary


SB 731 - This act exempts certain motorists from submitting their motor vehicles to safety and/or emissions inspections when renewing their certificate of registrations on vehicles which were initially issued one year license plate tabs in that the vehicles were not qualified to be licensed on a biennial basis. The used motor vehicles are not eligible for biennial registrations because the vehicles are even-numbered model year vehicles being registered during an odd-numbered calendar year or the vehicles are odd-numbered model year vehicles being registered during an even-numbered calendar year. Therefore, when an owner renews his or her registration the year following the purchase of the used vehicle, he or she will not have to submit the vehicle to a safety or emissions inspection. The act provides that the Director of Revenue shall renew the person's certificate of registration without proof of such inspections provided the owner presents all other documents required by law and pays all applicable registration fees.
