Texas Assembled Vehicles Bill Signed into Law

With Governor Greg Abbott’s signature, legislation (H.B. 1755) creating a specific registration and titling class for former military vehicles and assembled vehicles, including kit cars and dune buggies became law. The law provides that the new class of assembled vehicles will be subject to inspection by an ASE certified Master Technician for basic equipment including the chassis, tires, wheel assembly, brake system, steering system and lighting equipment among other items, and will exempt a hobbyist constructing an assembled vehicle from being a licensed manufacturer. Previously, there was no specific registration and titling class for certain assembled vehicles such as dune buggies. 

Congratulations and thank you to those who supported this bill!
