A new bill set to be heard by the New Jersey Senate Transportation Committee today would, if enacted, allow for vehicle registrations to last for more than one year.
Specifically, the bill would allow passenger automobiles, that are not new or leased, to be registered for a period of two to 10 years.
Under current law, these passenger automobiles are required to be registered annually.
The bill also permits new passenger automobiles to be registered for a period of between five and 10 years, up from the current period of four years.
According to the bill, a person registering a passenger automobile for more than one year would be required to prepay the full amount of the registration for the registration period elected by the person.
State Senator Declan O’Scanlon (R-Monmouth), who sponsored the bill, noted that his bill would be a win-win for the Motor Vehicle Commission and motorists, saving time and costs on both ends.
