[R58] New law eliminates signature requirement on vehicle registration
Start Date: 4/8/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM

Entry Description

STATEHOUSE — House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1082, authored by State Representative Woody Burton (R-Whiteland) and coauthored by State Representative Eric Koch (R-Bedford), was signed into law by Gov. Mike Pence this week.

“This issue was brought to my attention by a constituent who was charged with a Class C infraction and had to pay $138 just because she forgot to sign her vehicle registration,” said Rep. Burton. “With this new law, motorists will no longer be required to sign their vehicle registration forms.”

HEA 1082 removes the requirement that the person whose name appears on the vehicle registration must sign it. As the result of the bill, individuals who fail to sign their vehicle registration will no longer be subject to a Class C infraction. Additionally, law enforcement officers were previously within the law to impound vehicles simply because the registration wasn’t signed by the owner, but now this disproportional punishment will no longer be in effect.

“This was a common sense change to Indiana law, and it will eliminate a lot of unnecessary embarrassment and expense for Indiana drivers,” said Rep. Koch. 

HEA 1082 will go into effect on July 1, 2013.
