SB 290 - This act provides that beginning July 1, 2006, owners of motor vehicles will have the option of registering their motor vehicles on a biennial or quadrennial basis. Renewal of four-year registrations will be every other even-numbered calendar year for vehicles manufactured in an even-numbered model year, and vehicles manufactured in an odd-numbered model year will be every other odd-numbered calendar year. Fees collected at the time of a four-year registration will include the annual registration fee plus a pro rata amount for the additional 36 months of the registration.
Under this act, an initial one-time motor vehicle safety inspection is only required at the time of registration. The inspection shall be valid for the entire period the owner possesses the vehicle and no subsequent registrations shall be required unless the vehicle is transferred to another person.
This act is identical to HB 262 (2005).
