.11 Temporary Registration.

A. Maryland Temporary Authorization Certificates.

(1) Temporary authorization certificates may be obtained from the Motor Carrier Services Section of the Administration by apportioned vehicle registrants for use on an additional vehicle or when it is necessary to increase a vehicle's registered weight. The registrant's fees on its original apportioned registration application shall be paid before approval of the request for temporary authorization certificates. Temporary authorization certificates are not transferable and may not be used by another carrier.

(2) The Administration may suspend the proportional registration privileges of any carrier who does not file within 5 days a supplemental application for proportional registration of a vehicle for which the carrier issued a temporary authorization certificate. The suspension will be in effect until the proportional registration of the additional vehicle is completed. Transfer credit will not be allowed for the vehicle.

B. Trip Permits.

(1) Seventy-two hour trip permits may be obtained from the Administration or authorized issuing agents for the occasional or emergency operation into or through Maryland of vehicles registered in member jurisdictions but not proportionally registered in the State.

(2) Each trip permit shall be carried in the cab of the vehicle for which the permit is issued.

C. Hunter's Permits. Twenty-day hunter's permits may be obtained from the Administration or authorized issuing agents for use by owner-operators whose lease with a carrier has terminated or for newly purchased vehicles.
