From April 1 through October 31, a vehicle registered as an expanded-use antique vehicle may be driven on the highways without being subject to the restrictions set forth in subdivision (1). The Secretary may prescribe,
in the Secretary's discretion, that expanded-use antique vehicle plates be issued for a
definite or an indefinite term, such term to correspond to the term of
registration plates issued generally, as provided in Section 3-414.1. Any person requesting expanded-use antique vehicle plates under this Section
may also apply to have vanity or personalized plates as provided under
(b) Any person who is the registered owner of an expanded-use antique vehicle may
display a historical license plate from or representing the model year of
the vehicle, furnished by such person, in lieu of the current and valid
Illinois expanded-use antique vehicle plates issued thereto, provided that the valid and
current Illinois expanded-use antique vehicle plates and registration card issued to
the expanded-use antique vehicle are simultaneously carried within the vehicle and are
available for inspection.
(c) The Secretary may credit a pro-rated portion of a fee previously paid for an antique vehicle registration under Section 3-804 to an owner who applies to have that vehicle registered as an expanded-use antique vehicle instead of an antique vehicle.
