OKLAHOMA CITY – The House on Monday unanimously passed a bill that would allow personal vehicle owners the option of registering their personal vehicles every two years instead of just annually.
House Bill 2011 is authored by Rep. Dean Davis, R-Broken Arrow.
“This will save time and effort for Oklahomans who choose the option of registering their vehicles biennially,” Davis said. “The licensing and vehicle registration process can be time-consuming, and this should create greater convenience. I’m glad my colleagues in the House saw the merits of this effort.”
The bill directs Service Oklahoma to promulgate rules and procedures to establish an option for a biennial registration for all vehicles other than manufactured homes, vehicles with a permanent non-expiring license plate and commercial vehicles registered pursuant to an installment plan. Those choosing biennial registration would just pay double what they pay annually.
HB2011 now moves to the state Senate where it is authored by Sen. Chuck Hall, R-Perry. The bill has the title off as it has a fiscal impact, so it will return to the House for final passage.
