Harris: don’t forget your vehicle registration renewal

lic plateSPRINGFIELD- Drivers may soon have an easier time remembering when they need to renew their vehicle registration under a proposal approved by the Senate today. State Senator Napoleon Harris (D-Harvey) carried legislation that would allow drivers to choose their birthday as their vehicle registration expiration date.

“It’s common to forget to renew your vehicle registration,” Harris said. “This legislation saves drivers time and money by allowing them to choose a date that’s easy to remember, their birthday.”

Many drivers depended on reminders from the Secretary of State to recall their renewal date. Unfortunately, they had to stop sending out reminders last April leaving many drivers with fines to pay.

“It was clear after the Secretary of State stopped sending out reminders that something needed to be done to ease this yearly task for drivers,” Harris said. “It’s a simple adjustment that requires less effort from drivers.”

House Bill 5651, which passed the Senate 58-0, now heads to the governor for approval.
