HB 686 Modifies provisions for registration of motor vehicles

Current Bill Summary

- Prepared by Senate Research -


SCS/HB 686 - This act modifies provisions relating to the registration of motor vehicles.

JUNKING CERTIFICATES

This act modifies the definition of junk vehicle to include a vehicle that has been designated junk or a substantially equivalent designation by this state or any other state. This act further modifies provisions relating to motor vehicles classified as junk vehicles including specifying allowable transactions with a junking certificate and revising the language restricting issuance of a salvage or original certificate of title after a junking certificate has been issued.

These provisions are identical to provisions in SS/SCS/SB 278 (2015).

TEMPORARY REGISTRATION PERMIT SALES

This act allows temporary registration permit sales to be recorded by electronic means as determined by the Department of Revenue rather than requiring all temporary registration permit sales to be recorded on the dealer's monthly sales report.

These provisions are identical to SB 443 (2015).

TRANSFER OF INTEREST IN MOTOR VEHICLES AND TRAILERS

This act adds the requirement that a transferor of an interest in a motor vehicle or trailer provide the name of the transferor. The act allows the transferor and transferee to provide electronic signatures in the case of electronic transmission and for minor deviations from the requirements of the law, provided that the form of the sale substantially complies with the law and there are no materially misleading errors.

These provisions are nearly identical to HB 761 (2015).
