  • H.B. 213 as amended would require that the waiver certificate be carried in the motor vehicle at all times and available upon demand by law enforcement. 
  • H.B. 213 would protect the aesthetic contours of certain vehicles and relieve vehicle owners of the burden and expense of having to create mounting holes on some original bumpers.    
  • H.B. 213 would save money, conserve resources and bring Montana in line with other states that are moving to expand the types of vehicles eligible to display a single plate.

Overview: Legislation (H.B. 213) to provide for the issuance of a single rear mounted license plate for certain motor vehicles was approved by the Senate Highways and Transportation Committee and will be sent to the Senate floor for a vote by all members.  The bill has already been approved by the Montana House.   Under the bill “if a person is not able to comply with the requirement that a front license plate be displayed because of the body construction of the motor vehicle, the person may submit to the Highway Patrol an application for a waiver along with a $25 inspection fee.”  Vehicle owners would not be obligated to apply for the waiver or pay the fee.
