Inspections prior to sale; exception; certain special orders. Exempts from the requirement that motor vehicles be inspected prior to retail sale transactions (i) a motor vehicle that is sold on the basis of a special order placed with a dealer or manufacturer outside the Commonwealth by a dealer who makes modifications to such vehicle prior to delivery to the first retail customer who takes delivery outside the Commonwealth or (ii) a new motor vehicle that has previously been inspected and displays a valid inspection sticker. For a new vehicle sold on the basis of a special order by a dealer on behalf of a nonresident, the bill expands the existing exception for an order placed with a manufacturer outside the Commonwealth to also exempt an order placed with a dealer outside the Commonwealth. The bill contains a technical amendment. This bill is identical to HB 627. Read the Bill »
