Rhode Island Single Year of Manufacture Plate Bills Become Law

Congratulations, Rhode Island! Legislation (S.B. 621/H.B. 5888) to allow vehicles with “year of manufacture” (YOM) tags to display a single license plate on the rear of the vehicle has passed the deadline for the Governor’s signature or veto, and thus has become law without being signed. All motor vehicles 25 model years old and older are currently eligible for courtesy YOM plates in Rhode Island. Previously, these vehicles were required to display both front and rear YOM plates.

Thank you to those who supported this effort!
