Article 3. Reciprocity Agreements of California Vehicle Code >> Division 3. >> Chapter 4. >> Article 3.
The director, or his or her designee, may enter into
agreements with foreign jurisdictions that provide for the exemption
of fees for commercial vehicles if the foreign jurisdictions provide
equivalent exemptions to vehicles registered in this state. The
agreements shall be applicable to vehicles that are properly licensed
and registered in the foreign jurisdictions. The director, or his or
her designee, may also enter into agreements that provide for the
exemption of regulatory fees which are, or may be, imposed, by the
Public Utilities Code or the department.
The director, or his or her designee, is authorized to
examine the legal requirements of commercial vehicle registration fee
statutes of foreign jurisdictions which grant reciprocal privileges
to out-of-state vehicles, but which do not authorize negotiations or
execution of agreements. After examination of the statutes, the
director, or his or her designee, may declare the exemptions,
benefits, and privileges that commercial vehicles registered in
foreign jurisdictions shall be entitled to in this state.
