HCS#2/HB 451 - Currently, the Department of Revenue collects odometer information for motor vehicles 5 years old or less, and retains this information for a period of 5 years. This act modifies this requirement to specify that the Department shall collect odometer information for motor vehicles aged 10 years or less with fewer than 150,000 miles on the odometer, and retain the information for a period of 10 years. (Section 301.020)
The act also modifies homemade trailer inspection requirements by making the requirement applicable to all homemade trailers, rather than only to homemade trailers over 16 feet in length, and by raising the inspection fee from 10 dollars to 25 dollars. (Section 301.191)
Currently, motor vehicles are exempt from biennial mechanical inspection requirements for a period of five years following their model year. This act instead exempts motor vehicles for a period of 10 years following their model year, provided the vehicle has fewer than 150,000 miles on the odometer. (Section 307.350)
This act has an effective date of January 1, 2020.
This act is similar to SB 359 (2019), SB 381 (2019), and HB 1444 (2018).
