Oklahoma, time to celebrate! Governor Kevin Stitt signed into law SAN-supported legislation
(H.B. 3179) to allow for the registration and titling of former military surplus vehicles. The new
law defines a “military surplus vehicle” as a vehicle less than 35 years old and was
manufactured for use in either the United States Armed Forces or any country that was a
member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization at the time the vehicle was manufactured.
The vehicle also must have been authorized for sale to civilians and include seat belts or safety
shoulder harnesses for each occupant.
Prior to the new law, former military vehicles were not able to be titled in the state. Additionally,
it recognizes important historical and patriotic purpose of military vehicles, which are becoming
valued collectors’ items among the automotive community. It will go into effect November 1 st .
Congratulations and thank you to those who supported this effort!
