DMV Implementing Law Changes in July

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles getting ready to implement legislative changes that go into effect July.

Among the changes is the repeal of the $64 hybrid vehicle license tax. Those who renewed hybrid vehicle registrations for multiple years are entitled to a refund.

The state sales and use tax also will increase slightly to fund transportation projects.

Beginning in July, active military members returning from an official absence, have 14 calendar days to obtain a current vehicle safety inspection sticker. That's nine more days than the current law.

The department also will be requiring those convicted of a DUI to install an ignition interlock system as a condition of restricted driving privileges, even if the court doesn't require it.

Drivers also can indicate an intellectual disability on their licenses.
