Are you thinking about switching your classic car tags to historical tags? You may be surprised to know that it will automatically save you $140 per year on your classic car insurance. That is because you get a huge break on MCCA fees, which are applied directly to your classic car insurance policy. Vehicles registered with historical plates only pay 20% of the MCCA fee.
Does My Classic Car Qualify for Historical Tags?
A historical vehicle must be:
-More than 25 years old
-Owned solely as a collector's item
-Used only for events such as historical club activities, parades and car shows
*Note: A vehicle registered with a historical or authentic plate can not be used for routine, day-to-day transportation.
If your vehicle qualifies, getting the historical plates is a no brainer! The MCCA fee is $175 per vehicle with standard plates. That fee drops to $35 with historical plates, giving you an automatic savings of $140 on your insurance premium.
