Is it legal to move a purchased commercial trailer with an expired annual inspection(safety) using a Service Plate?
(Considering there are no major defects).
on a trailer or motor vehicle other than a motorcycle or motor-assisted bicycle for purposes related to the repair, road testing, customization or modification of the vehicle, if the vehicle is in the possession of the person to whom the service plate is issued, or
for the purpose of transporting the vehicle by a person engaged in the business of transporting vehicles, or
for purposes related to the manufacturing or sale of a trailer, or
for the purpose of towing the vehicle by a person engaged in the business of transporting vehicles, or
to tow a vehicle to a location where its load will be removed or to an impound facility.
So that said what I'm asking is "does the service plate permit me to operate commercial equipment with an expired annual inspection"? OR does the vehicle need to be certified OR pulled by a tow truck?
Or does the line "purposes related to the repair, road testing" omit the need for an annual inspection?
