Colorado MV law

Thanks to the hard work by a few MVCC ( the Colorado version), we now have a new law in our fine state that allows any MV that is painted and has military markings to drive w/o a plate. You must keep the issued plate on board but don't have to much up the image with a modern plate.
Thanks,
Lew

Lew,
Glad to hear this!!!!!
Does Colorado limit the uses of the MV if being driven without a tag?
Is the hood number being used as a substitute as in several other states?

Kevin,
Sorry for the delayed response. I don't check this thread too often.
A person with a military vehicle if it is still painted like it was ( does not have to be original, just look like a military paint job) can keep the tags in a tool box. They do not need to display on the vehicle. No rules as to use of the vehicle, no weight rules, no parade BS. Just pick what type of tags work best for you. Shove them in the tool box and go!
Your registration is what ever the title says. Hood numbers sometimes end up on titles but not often. Usually frame or engine number.

The MVCC did this one right! We have had no issues since all members carry a copy of the law along with the tags so they can show Barny the law if stopped.

It is very simple. The representatives tried to muck it up but our team kept them in line and made it very simple. The state wanted weight, use, and other restrictions but again our team pushed for simple stuff. It worked! How rare is that!
