STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Eighteen
Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:
261:57-a Temporary Registrations and Number Plates.
I. The director may issue a [temporary] registration certificate and [temporary] number plates to a new resident who is required to obtain a certificate of title in accordance with RSA 261 upon payment of the appropriate registration and title fees as provided by RSA 261:141 and RSA 261:20 when the vehicle has been previously registered in a foreign state and the title is held by a foreign state lien holder. The [temporary] registration certificate and [temporary] number plates shall be valid [for 60 days and may be renewed once for good cause at the discretion of the bureau of certificate of title. A permanent registration certificate and permanent number plates shall be issued] until such time as they are due for renewal. The registration may be renewed when the requirements of RSA 261 relative to certificate of title have been met by the new resident.
II. The director may issue a temporary registration certificate and temporary number plates to any applicant for a permanent registration and permanent number plates upon payment of the appropriate registration fee as provided by RSA 261:141, when a computer system failure, inability to obtain permanent number plates or other emergency would prevent the issuance and recording of permanent registrations and permanent number plates. The temporary registrations and temporary number plates shall be valid for 30 days; provided, however, that the director may extend this period until such time as he is able to issue and record permanent registrations and permanent number plates to replace them.
III. [The registration and title fees paid in accordance with paragraph I of this section shall not be refunded, except that the fees shall be deemed the fees for the permanent registration and certificate of title.] Any registration fee paid shall be transferable credit on a replacement vehicle in accordance with RSA 261:66.
IV. [The temporary registration certificate and temporary number plate authorized by this section shall be of such design as the director shall deem appropriate; provided, however, that the registration certificate shall contain the information required by RSA 261:58.
V.] The director shall adopt rules pursuant to RSA 260:5 to administer this section.
