Wyoming license plates can be checked and approved before they are issued.
A new law allows for this.
The bill, sponsored by state Rep. Dan Brimelow, R-Wyoming, and Sen. Jason Palfrey, R–La., was introduced last month.
It was referred to the House Judiciary Committee on Monday.
Wyomish Department of Motor Vehicles officials will check Wyoming license-plate numbers and provide the results to the state’s DMV in person or by phone.
The DMV will then contact the applicant to confirm the information is correct.
The agency has been told that there is no longer a requirement to get a license plate inspection in person.
The bill does not specify how many plates must be checked.
The Department of Public Safety can issue license plates to individuals who are in their 30s and 50s and those who have been in the state less than three years.
In Wyoming, people with a valid driver’s license must wear a special license plate when driving, but no license plate is required when it comes to driving a vehicle.
State law requires a license-holder to submit proof of insurance or other proof of coverage when purchasing a vehicle, but not when purchasing insurance.
The state also allows license plate checks to be conducted by anyone, but that the state will not disclose that information.
If someone wants to request a license check, they will need to meet with a person or agency that will conduct the check.
The department will not divulge the person or agencies.
Anyone who is asked to check a license or registration number must provide a copy of their driver’s licence or a government-issued photo identification card, along with the requested information.
A valid ID will also be accepted.
