    (This Section may contain text from a Public Act with a delayed effective date)
    Sec. 3-414.5. Multi-year registration.
    (a) The Secretary of State shall permit the owner of a motor vehicle of the first division or a motor vehicle of the second division weighing not more than 8,000 pounds or a motor vehicle of the second division applying for a C class registration plate to register the motor vehicle for a period of 2 years if the owner selects to register his or her motor vehicle under this Section.
        (1) If the motor vehicle to be registered is
    
required to undergo emissions inspections, the 2-year registration must coincide with the emissions inspection cycle.
        (2) An applicant for a 2-year registration
    
shall apply online or by completing and mailing the appropriate 2-year registration application form to the address indicated on the form.
        (3) The owner of a motor vehicle with a
    
2-year registration may transfer that registration to another motor vehicle with the same emissions inspection requirements, if applicable. The owner of a motor vehicle with a 2-year registration who discontinues use of the registration before the expiration of the 2-year period is not entitled to a complete or a prorated refund of the registration fee.
        (4) The fee for a 2-year registration shall
    
be twice the applicable annual registration fee for the motor vehicle being registered. If the owner of a motor vehicle issued registration under this subsection is subject to an annual surcharge under Section 3-806 or 3-815, the Secretary of State shall collect the surcharge for each registration year of the multi-year registration at the same time the Secretary of State collects the one-time registration fee.
    (b) The Secretary of State shall permit the owner of a trailer to register the trailer for a period of either one year or up to an extended 5-year registration period.
        (1) The registration shall be based on a
    
recurring 5-year registration period. The trailer owner may apply for an annual registration, registration for the full 5 years, or for the number of years remaining in the current 5-year cycle at the time of the registration application.
        (2) An applicant for a 5-year trailer
    
registration shall apply online or by completing and mailing the appropriate 5-year registration application form to the address indicated on the form.
        (3) The owner of a trailer with a 5-year
    
registration may transfer that registration to another trailer of the same weight class. The owner of a trailer with a 5-year registration who discontinues use of the registration before the expiration of the 5-year period is not entitled to a complete or a prorated refund of the registration fee.
        (4) The fee for a 5-year registration shall
    
be the same as the applicable annual registration fee for the trailer being registered multiplied by the number of years remaining in the current 5-year cycle at the time of the registration application.
    (c) The Secretary of State may adopt rules to implement this Section.
