Auctioneer/In-transit Repair

Agency: Department of State

An auctioneer/in-transit repair plate may be issued to an individual, partnership, corporation, or association, including vehicle dealers, who, in the ordinary course of business, have occasion to legally pick up or deliver a vehicle.  The auctioneer/in-transit repair plate may be used to move a vehicle for repair or service, or to pick up or deliver a commercial vehicle being driven to a facility to undergo aftermarket modification.  The in-transit repair plate is placed on the vehicle being picked up or delivered.

Watercraft and RV dealers can use an auctioneer/in-transit repair plate to pick up or deliver a trailer.  (The trailer may carry a watercraft or RV.)  Auctioneer/in-transit repair plates can also be used on trailers taken to boat shows or expositions.  Dealers cannot use auctioneer/in-transit repair plates on trailers owned and used as part of their daily operation, or on trailers used to deliver only the boat.  These trailers must be properly registered in the dealer's name. 

An auctioneer/in-transit repair plate may also be issued to an individual, partnership, corporation, or association who, in the ordinary course of business, operates an auto auction.  The plate may be used to legally pick up or deliver a vehicle offered for sale at the auction.  Vehicle brokers who are not auctions are not eligible for the auctioneer/in-transit repair plate.
