Under current law, boat trailers are not required to be registered or have a license plate within the State of Alabama. Manufacturers and dealers of boats within the state that sell and transport boats out of the state run the risk of fines and traffic citations without proper documentation
This bill would allow manufacturers and dealers of boats located within the State of Alabama to make application to the Department of Revenue for the authority to issue temporary license plates and registration certificates for boat trailers when sold out of state. This would also include the manufacturers and dealers of other types of trailers to include semi-trailers and utility trailers, to issue temporary license plates and registration certificates when conducting out of state sales
In addition, it would standardize the bond requirements for all manufacturers and dealers of trailers needing to issue temporary license plates and registration certificates
To amend Section 32-6-212, Code of Alabama 1975, relating to temporary license plates and registration certificates; to provide for additional authorization for manufacturers and dealers of boats; to provide for temporary license plates and registration certificates for boat trailers when sold out of state; and to revise the bond requirements of manufacturers and dealers.
