Current law creates demonstration plates that a motor vehicle
dealership may use without registering the motor vehicle. The bill
authorizes these plates to be used when the motor vehicle is:
  • Offered for sale by the dealer on the dealer's property;
  • Driven by a prospective buyer for demonstration-drive

purposes during normal business hours;
  • Driven by a prospective buyer for demonstration-drive
purposes outside of normal business hours if the
prospective buyer has a letter from the dealer authorizing
the buyer to operate the motor vehicle with the
demonstration plates and the letter contains certain
information; or
  • Driven by a dealer employee, during normal business
hours, to conduct legitimate dealership business; except
that the authorization excludes tow vehicles, parts pickup
or delivery vehicles, courtesy shuttle vehicles, rental
vehicles, haulers, or vehicles bearing the dealer's name or
advertisement, other than the small dealer badge normally
affixed to the rear of vehicles or the license plate holders
bearing the dealer's name.
