7 CSR 10-25.050 - Reciprocity with Other States-Registration of Trailers

Current through Register Vol. 46, No. 24, December 15, 2021

PURPOSE: The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission has the authority to negotiate and to enter reciprocal agreements with other jurisdictions for registration of commercial motor vehicles for interstate commercial use of the highways. This rule interprets the statutes with respect to reciprocity and registration.

(1) Trailers. Unless otherwise provided by duly executed reciprocity agreements authorized by law, trailers registered in any member jurisdiction may be operated in combination with any motor vehicle properly registered pursuant to such reciprocity agreement.
(2) The Highways and Transportation Commission delegates to the Department of Transportation's Motor Carrier Services Division (MCS) the authority to issue temporary vehicle registration in lieu of permanent registrations for interstate trailers. The original or a copy of the cab card authorized pursuant to 7 CSR 10-25.030(8) for the trailer must be carried in or upon the tractor pulling the trailer at all times. To register any number of trailers with the commission, a person or corporation must have at least one (1) tractor registered with the commission.
(3) Reciprocal privileges granted under section 301.271, RSMo can only be granted to an owner who is not a resident of Missouri, who has properly registered the vehicle desired to be operated within the jurisdiction where the owner is a resident.
(4) Vehicles operating solely in interstate commerce on the highways of Missouri are not required to pay Missouri motor vehicle registration fees. Vehicles operating or moving in solely intrastate commerce between two (2) points in Missouri or carrying any merchandise or passengers between two (2) points in Missouri will be required to pay the full Missouri motor vehicle registration fees required for the operation.
(5) In the event of the loss, theft, mutilation, or destruction of any license plate the registrant may file with the commission a notice of such loss, theft, mutilation, or destruction together with any fee required by section 301.300, RSMo, to obtain a duplicate or replacement plate.
(6) Any contractor or sub-contractor of the commission that is subject to regulation under these administrative rules shall at all times while conducting business with the commission under such contract be in good standing with the laws of the state of Missouri and the administrative rules of the commission, or shall obtain full compliance with such laws or rules within ten (10) days of being notified of noncompliance by MCS.
