(c) Organizations entitled to a specific exemption from the Secretary of State charitable organization registration requirements pursuant to 18 OS ยง 552.4 may, upon confirmation of that exemption by the Motor Vehicle Division of the Oklahoma Tax Commission, receive and assign ownership of donated vehicles in the same manner as registered charitable organizations.

(d) A nonprofit charitable organization which is exempt from taxation pursuant to the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code, 26 U.S.C., Section 501(c)(3), and which accepts donations of used motor vehicles previously titled in Oklahoma to be subsequently transferred to another owner, upon the qualifying organization providing sufficient documentation of its tax-exempt status, may obtain from the Oklahoma Tax Commission charitable nonprofit organization license plates for demonstrating, transporting or test-driving donated vehicles, provided that no organization shall possess or use at any one time more than eight (8) such plates.
