Good News, Governor Ralph Northam signed pro-hobby legislation (H.B. 1323) into a law! The new law will allow qualifying military vehicles to be registered and operated on public roadways as “antiques”. In Virginia, a “military surplus off-road motor vehicle” is defined as a High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (or HMMWV, a vehicle more commonly known as a Humvee) that was manufactured by or under the direction of the United States Armed Forces and subsequently authorized for sale to civilians. Additionally, a favorable amendment was made to allow currently registered military vehicles to retain registration without the “antique” designation.
