47-1122.
   
   A. Whenever any nonresident owning any motor bus, truck,
   truck-tractor, trailer or semitrailer, which has been registered under
   the laws of another state and bears a current registration from such
   state, brings such vehicle into this state, for the purpose of using
   the vehicle for hire or other commercial purpose, for a temporary
   period of time not to exceed ninety (90) days, such person may,
   immediately after entering this state, upon the filing of an
   application therefor with the Commission, and the payment of a license
   fee equal to one-eighth (1/8) of the annual license fee required of
   such vehicle, register same for a period of thirty (30) days in lieu
   of obtaining an annual registration and license therefor; he may upon
   payment of one-fourth (1/4) of the annual license fee register it for
   a period of sixty (60) days or for ninety (90) days upon the payment
   of three-eighths (3/8) of the annual license fee in lieu of obtaining
   annual registration and license therefor. Upon failure of any person
   to obtain or renew this temporary license when first available, the
   fee due for the remaining portion of the year shall become due and
   must be paid.
   
   B. It will not be necessary for such person to obtain an Oklahoma
   certificate of title evidencing ownership of such vehicle, if the
   applicant therefor has been issued a valid certificate of title or
   ownership for such vehicle by his home state. The Commission will
   issue a certificate of registration covering each temporary license
   provided by the terms of this section.
   
   C. Provided, however, that the provisions of this section for
   temporary licenses shall not apply to the residents of any other state
   when the laws of such other state do not provide temporary licensing
   for approximately comparable license fees for vehicles being used in
   such other state by residents of Oklahoma under the same or
   substantially similar purposes, terms and conditions; and, provided
   further that, irrespective of the amount of the temporary license fees
   provided in this section, the amount of any temporary license fee for
   a vehicle of a resident of any such state shall be determined and
   fixed by the Commission in the amount, or the approximate total
   amount, of any license fee and any other taxes, including property and
   mileage taxes, required by the laws of such other state to be paid by
   a resident of Oklahoma making the same use of a similar vehicle in
   such state.
