Hi there – I received this email on Friday – good news for us
Starting Monday, the way that Wisconsin DMV handles collector plate applications and former military vehicles will change. Wisconsin Act 103 is a series of statutory changes signed into law by Governor Walker that go into effect on March 1. The changes have a significant impact on collector plate eligibility and remove barriers to registering former military vehicles.
I want to specifically address the collector license plate change:
Under previous law to qualify for a collector plate the vehicle had to be 20 years old and not been altered or modified from the original manufacturers specifications.
Act 103 alters the originality requirement for collector plates. The requirement now reads the body has not been altered from the original.
In the past DMV would not issue a collector plate for a vehicle that we recognized had interior modifications, engine modifications, wheel changes etc. All such changes will now be allowed provided the body has not been altered.
Here are some links that provide more information on the law change:
I would appreciate it greatly if you could share this information throughout your various clubs and organizations. If questions arise, feel free to reply directly to me, or contact DMV’s Special Plates Unit at Special-Plates.email@example.com.
Whether you’re into Model A’s or hemi’s, or anything in between, it’s our privilege to serve you. Have a safe weekend.
