8-143g. Trip permits authorizing certain dealers to demonstrate trucks and truck tractors; fees; application; limitations; plate display; laws applicable; act supplemental; disposition of fees. A motor vehicle dealer licensed in this state or in a state contiguous to this state, who is the owner of a truck or truck tractor which the owner desires to demonstrate under actual working conditions by having it operated by the prospective purchaser in interstate or intrastate commerce on the highways of this state, in lieu of obtaining a regular registration for such vehicle, may obtain from the division, or an agent designated by director of vehicles, a trip permit authorizing such demonstration and operation for a period of: (a) Seventy-two hours upon making proper application and the payment of a fee of $26, on January 1, 2013, $36, on January 1, 2014, $46; or (b) fifteen days upon making proper application and the payment of a fee of $100, on January 1, 2013, $110, on January 1, 2014, $120. A dealer may purchase such demonstration permits in multiples of three upon making proper application and the payment of required fees. The application shall be to the division on a form prescribed and furnished by the director of vehicles. The name of the prospective purchaser must be shown on the application. A dealer purchasing permits in multiples, shall complete the application and permit as required by the division and mail a copy of such application to the division within 24 hours from the date of issuance of such permit. Only one such permit may be used by the same prospective purchaser on the same truck or truck tractor. Whenever a truck or truck tractor is operated under the authority of a trip permit issued hereunder it also shall have displayed thereon a dealer's registration plate which has been issued by this state or a state contiguous to this state to the dealer who is the owner of such truck or truck tractor. The provision of K.S.A. 8-136, and amendments thereto, prohibiting the hauling of commodities in excess of two tons by a vehicle displaying a dealer plate shall not apply to a truck or truck tractor being operated under a trip permit as authorized by this section. This section shall be construed as a part of and supplementary to the motor vehicle registration law of this state. The division shall remit all fees collected under this section to the state treasurer in accordance with the provisions of K.S.A. 75-4215, and amendments thereto. Upon receipt of each such remittance, the state treasurer shall deposit the entire amount in the state treasury to the credit of the state highway fund.
