Registration Of Vehicles In Rental Fleets
the operator of a rental vehicle fleet (fleet operator), if authorized by the department of revenue (DOR), a fleet operator to transfer license plates from one fleet vehicle to another when the fleet operator transfers or assigns the owner's title or interest in the fleet vehicle from which the number plates are being transferred. In addition, subject to current statutory requirements relating to the use of approved third-party providers, the DOR, to the extent feasible, is required to allow an owner of a rental vehicle fleet that is authorized to transfer license plates to maintain its own inventory of new number plates and to use a third-party provider to handle all or any portion of both its vehicle registration, lien, and titling needs and its number plate inventory ordering, management, and distribution needs. The DOR is also authorized to promulgate rules or establish guidelines to specify or clarify the requirements that an owner of a rental vehicle fleet must meet to apply for, obtain, and maintain authorization to transfer license plates.
