Montana Bill to Provide for Single License Plate Signed Into Law

Legislation (H.B. 213) to provide for the issuance of a single rear mounted license plate for certain motor vehicles was signed into law by Governor Steve Bullock.  Under the new law “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.”  The law requires that the waiver certificate be carried in the motor vehicle and available upon demand by law enforcement.  Vehicle owners are not obligated to apply for the waiver or pay the fee.  

Thank you to those who participated in supporting this bill!
