No fee shall be charged and collected by the division of vehicles for a letter of authorization or an authorization issued by the division by an electronic communications device.
(c) A temporary authorization issued under the provisions of this section shall be carried with the vehicle described in such authorization and, if such vehicle is a trailer, such authorization shall be carried in the vehicle supplying the motive power. An authorization issued under the provisions of this section shall be a valid registration identification device during the period of time covered by such authorization, and shall be in lieu of any other identification or registration device issued or required under the provisions of K.S.A. 8-126 to 8-149, inclusive, and amendments thereto.
