Vehicles: specially constructed vehicles.


Existing law establishes a registration amnesty program for specially constructed vehicles, as defined, that have been previously registered or classified incorrectly and requires that a specially constructed vehicle, upon registration with the Department of Motor Vehicles, be inspected by stations authorized to perform referee functions, for the purposes of determining the engine model-year used in the vehicle or the vehicle model-year, and the emission control system application. Existing law also requires the department to annually provide a registration to no more than the first 500 of these vehicles that meet specified criteria. This bill would delete the first 500 vehicle limitation and instead require the department to provide registration to any specially constructed vehicle that meets the specified criteria. The bill would provide that the registered owner of a specially constructed vehicle that is currently registered or incorrectly registered may change the vehicle's registration by complying with those specified criteria.
