Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land today announced that legislation moving the expiration date for motorcycle registrations and tabs from the fixed date of March 31 to the owners’ birthdays is now on its way to the governor’s desk. This new legislation will provide greater convenience to bikers and improved efficiency for the department.
"This common-sense approach brings multiple benefits to customers and the department," said Land, after final passage of House Bill 5008. "By issuing motorcycle registrations in accordance with an individual’s birthday, as we do with other vehicles, we consolidate the number of renewal notices that must be mailed. This also reduces the number of times customers must interact with the department and translates into fewer people in line at a branch."
HB 5008, sponsored by state Rep. Bill Huizenga, R-Zeeland, will take effect Feb. 1, 2005, if signed by the governor. To accommodate the changeover to the new registration dates, motorcycle renewal fees will be prorated for the first year based on the number of months from April 1 to the owner’s birthday. After 2005, registration renewal fees are calculated for a full year from the owner’s birthday.
