  fees for historic vehicles


  Section  1.  Schedule G of subdivision 7 of section 401 of the vehicle
and traffic law, as amended by section 25 of part G of chapter 59 of the
laws of 2009, is amended to read as follows:
  G. Schedule for historical motor  vehicles.  For  each  motor  vehicle
which  is  owned and operated as an exhibition piece or collectors item,
and is used  for  participation  in  club  activities,  exhibit,  tours,
parades,  occasional  transportation  and similar uses, but not used for
general daily transportation, [an annual fee of twenty-eight dollars and
seventy-five cents] A ONE TIME FEE OF ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS. For  purposes
of  this  paragraph,  a  historical motor vehicle shall mean any vehicle
manufactured more than twenty-five years prior to the  current  calendar
year,  and any other model, year and type vehicle which has unique char-
acteristics and which is determined by the commissioner to be of histor-
ical, classic or exhibition value.  Registration plates for  such  vehi-
cles  shall  be  of  a type and design approved by the commissioner, but
shall be of a distinctive nature.  Except that, with the approval of the
commissioner, an owner of any  such  vehicle  may  utilize  registration
plates  issued in the year corresponding to the model year date in which
the vehicle was manufactured, if  the  registration  plate  is  legible,
durable,  and  serviceable,  of  this  state,  and accurate in color, as
determined by  the  department.  Nothing  in  this  paragraph  shall  be
construed  to  prohibit the use of previously issued registration plates
that have been restored, without deviation from their original  alphanu-
meric or pictorial content, to such condition as otherwise satisfies all

                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
