Proposed Changes to INCVA Relating to Restricted Plates
Monday, November 18, 2013
The INCVA Task Force is proposing minor changes to the International Non-apportioned Commercial Vehicle Agreement relating to restricted plates.
The changes ensure that restricted (number) plates used by motor
vehicle sales and services industries, for the purpose of moving a
vehicle from one location to another, are more clearly provided for
under INCVA. Examples of this type of use would include a newly
manufactured or recently purchased vehicle displaying a "transporter
plate” or "dealer plate” to provide for the unregistered vehicle to be
driven on a highway for delivery to a dealership or purchaser. In
addition, changes are also proposed to remove redundant language
relating to exclusions for restricted plated vehicles.
The proposed changes do not change the scope or intent of INCVA;
rather, the changes simply make clear that unregistered vehicles
temporarily operated while displaying a restricted plate are afforded
the same benefits under INCVA as registered vehicles displaying a
Absent any objections, the proposed changes will become effective on
Dec. 4, 2013 and the revised version will be the official version for
jurisdictions to sign onto.

Jurisdictions are asked to review the Agreement and consider becoming a
signatory. INCVA provides full and free reciprocity for commercial
vehicles that are not eligible to be registered under IRP and for those
that registration under IRP is optional. INCVA provides clarity and
certainty for jurisdiction staff, law enforcement and industry. To date,
while many jurisdictions are in the review process, no jurisdiction has
officially signed onto INCVA. Read more about INCVA.
