Oklahoma Introduces Bill to Require Front and Rear Plates on All Vehicles

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact the members of the Oklahoma House Appropriations and Budget Committee to request their opposition to H.B. 3899:

You may use the following points in your message:

  • H.B. 3899 would increase costs, waste valuable resources and brings Oklahoma in conflict with other states that are moving to a single plate requirement.
  • H.B. 3899 would fail to protect the aesthetic contours of collector cars and force vehicle owners to take on the burden and cost of having to create mounting holes on bumpers. 
  • H.B. 3899 would place significant limitations on the performance and styling equipment options available to automotive enthusiasts in the state and the industry supporting their hobby.
  • H.B. 3899 would fail to accommodate classic and special-interest vehicles, many of which are not originally equipped with a designated place to display a front plate.  Current law allows a single “antique” or “classic” plate for vehicles that are at least 25 years old and used primarily for historical or exhibition purposes.

Overview: SAN-opposed legislation (H.B. 3899) has been introduced in Oklahoma to require front and rear license plates on all vehicles. Currently, all vehicles are required to display only a single, rear-mounted license plate. The bill awaits consideration in the House Appropriations and Budget Committee.
