Creates a registration framework specific to autocycles, as defined in the act, and adds straddle-type seating and handlebar-based controls to the definition of motor-tricycle. The act specifies that autocycles registered as motorcycles or motor-tricycles prior to August 20, 2018, shall remain in effect until their expiration, after which time the vehicles must be registered as autocycles. The act removes the statewide requirement for autocycles to be equipped with a roof in order for passengers to not be required to wear protective headgear.
MOTORCYCLE AND MOTORTRICYCLE REGISTRATIONS (Section 301.030 RSMo.)
This act specifies that motorcycle and motor-tricycle registrations shall expire on June 30.
DISABLED VETERAN LICENSE PLATES (Sections 301.074 and 301.075 RSMo.)
Currently, a person eligible to receive disabled veteran license plates may receive one set of the plates and shall not be charged a fee to receive them. This act provides that a person may license a second or subsequent motor vehicle for disabled veteran plates, subject to the regular registration and personalized license plate fees.
TEMPORARY VEHICLE REGISTRATION PERMITS (Section 301.140 RSMo.)
The act requires temporary vehicle registration permits to be returned to, and destroyed by, the Department of Revenue upon issuance of the standard registration plates. No fine is associated with this requirement.
The act also exempts temporary vehicle registration permits for commercial vehicles registered in excess of 24,000 pounds.
DISABLED LICENSE PLATES AND WINDSHIELD PLACARDS (Section 301.142 RSMo.) This act requires individuals and entities that have obtained disabled license plates or windshield placards to return the plates or windshield placards to the Department of Revenue within 30 days of becoming ineligible to receive them. No fine is associated with this requirement.

There shall be no fee charged for Congressional Medal of Honor license plates in addition to regular registration fees.
DOCUMENT RETENTION FOR DRIVER'S LICENSE APPLICANTS (Section 302.170 RSMo.)
This act specifies that the Department of Revenue may retain documents submitted by CDL applicants who are Missouri residents and active duty military or veterans which allow for waiver of the CDL knowledge test or skills test.
MOTORCYCLE RIDER TRAINING COURSES (Section 302.173 RSMo.)
Currently, completion of a civilian or military motorcycle rider training course qualifies a license applicant for a waiver of the driving test requirement. This act expands the waiver to include the practical knowledge test.

COMMERCIAL VEHICLE SAFETY INSPECTIONS (Section 304.232 RSMo.)
This act specifies that roadside safety inspections shall not be performed on the shoulder of any highway with a posted speed limit in excess of 40 mph. However, safety inspections may be permitted on the shoulder at any entrance or exit of such highway where there is adequate space on the shoulder to safely perform the inspection. The provision only applies to CVE inspections conducted roadside. If a PC stop turns into an inspection, they will need to be escorted away from the roadway (speed limit above 40 mph).
DISPLAY OF FIXED, FLASHING, OR ROTATING LIGHTS (Section 307.175 RSMo.) Currently, vehicles owned by a utility or by an entity performing work for the Department of Transportation may display fixed, flashing, or rotating lights under certain circumstances. This act specifies that both vehicles and equipment may display the lights, whether owned or leased. This act specifies that no more than two vehicles per work zone may display fixed, flashing, or rotating red or red and blue lights.
Authorized vehicles or equipment that are not owned or leased by the State Highways and Transportation Commission and operated by an authorized MODOT employee shall be located in a marked work zone with workers present. This act also removes the requirement that vehicles owned or leased by MODOT contractors be stationary to display the lights.
REGISTRATION OF VEHICLES PURCHASED FROM DEALERS (Section 307.350 RSMo.)
The new owner may utilize an inspection performed within 90 days prior to the application for registration or transfer.
