Application for drive-away permits.
(a) A dealer who has sold a vehicle of a type otherwise required to
be registered under this Act to a nonresident of this State who does not
have currently valid registration in his home state, may provide
for the operation of such vehicle without registration from the place of
sale to the place of destination outside of the State of Illinois, by issuing
drive-away permit in the manner prescribed by the Secretary of State and by
affixing the permit to
such vehicle in the manner prescribed by the Secretary of State. Any vehicle
being operated pursuant to a drive-away permit may not
be used for
any other purpose and such permits shall be effective only for a period
of 30 days from the date of sale.
(b) Any dealer may make application to the Secretary of State upon
the appropriate form for drive-away permits for motor
by such dealer. Along with such application each applicant shall submit
proof of his status as a bona fide dealer and any other information as
may be required by the Secretary of State. A non-resident who has
purchased a motor vehicle from a person who is not a dealer, may
likewise apply to the Secretary of State for a drive-away permit
for display upon such vehicle while being driven from Illinois to the
State of residence of the applicant. Along with such application, the
applicant shall submit proof of his non-residence and eligibility for a
reciprocal exemption from registration in Illinois.
All drive-away permits issued under such application
a distinguishing number and such other features as may be required by
the Secretary of State.
