DMV tightens antique car policy PDF Print
Wednesday, 02 January 2008 21:41

Custom-built and antique cars must be inspected and photographed before receiving a title, DMV officials said yesterday.

An Associated Press article released yesterday says a license and theft inspector will issue a report, collect fees and out-of-state documentation, and fax all information to the special titles unit of the DMV headquarters for approval. Approved vehicles will be issued 60-day temporary tags. Titles and plates will be mailed to customers after the DMV conducts further research. The policy comes into play six months after allegations that a former DMV commissioner helped a friend get a vintage vehicle title for a replica. Owners who have already registered vintage and custom-built vehicles and have titles will not be affected by the new rules. Starting in May, however, owners of those vehicles will be able to get their titles reviewed to make sure false information wasn’t used to obtain the titles.
