To Barry...A "Manufacturers License Plate" is the plate an auto dealer puts on a vehicle that is being used as a test drive or loaner vehicle. It keeps the vehicle from having to be "registered" to anyone other than an auto dealer PRIOR to the retail sale of the vehicle.
Maybe the are manufacturing some meth in the car.
According to TXDoT, "Manufacturers Plate" is Neither manufacturers nor distributors are allowed to sell new motor vehicles directly to Texas consumers, including municipalities. So this plate is for someone other than the auto dealer.
Look at the big brain on Brad......Shut up!
Not the dealer. Its for people who work at the plant. Dealers get dealer plates.
A manufacturer is a person who manufactures or assembles new motor vehicles. The manufacturer's tags are used to test a vehicle on the public street. It's in the Transportation Code.Not for people who work at the plant, but for those vehicles owned or tested by the plant.Test drive or loaners from dealers are Dealer Tags, not manufacturer's.
OK, We've got lots of definitions here (mzchief's being wrong - again) but my question is, what was the manufacturer testing in the McDonalds drive thru? How about some deputy ticketing the unauthorized use of the vehicle?
OOOPPPSSS!I made a mistake when I used the word "dealer." EVERYTHING else in MY statement is CORRECT. The link provided by anonyNOTHING 2:53 is to obtain a Manufacturer's License. THIS TxDOT LINK will explain on page 2 paragraph 2 what is a Manufacturer's License PLATE. For those of you who do not click links here is the ENTIRE paragraph copied and pasted from the TxDOT document."Manufacturer’s License Plates: Instead of registering a new vehicle that a manufacturer intends to test on a public street or highway or to loan to a consumer during warranty repair to a consumer’s vehicle, the manufacturer may apply for, receive, and attach manufacturer’s license plates to the vehicle. Commercial motor vehicles with manufacturer’s license plates attached may not carry a load. These metal plates expire on March 31; the full fee must be paid regardless of the date they were applied for."***********************************Sorry for being so late to correct my error but I do REALLY have a life and was away from my laptop and could not get a cell tower to save my life until I got in too late to care to look at The Blog.
We just love it when you wallow in your mistakes, mzcreep.
