   A. Any person, firm or corporation owning or possessing a commercial
   vehicle who:
   
   1. Is a resident of the United States;
   
   2. Is required to register the vehicle under the laws of this state;
   
   3. Is not authorized to drive the vehicle on the public roads of this
   state for lack of registration or reciprocity of this state's laws
   with the laws of the state in which the vehicle is registered; and
   
   4. Operates the vehicle for commercial purposes;
   
   may receive a temporary permit from the Oklahoma Tax Commission or any
   motor license agent in this state. The permit shall be recognized in
   lieu of registration in this state. The permit shall indicate the time
   and date of its issuance and shall be valid for a period not to exceed
   seventy-two (72) hours from such indicated time.
   
   B. A fee of Twelve Dollars ($12.00) shall be charged for the issuance
   of the temporary permit which shall be apportioned in the same manner
   as other vehicle license fees are apportioned under the terms of the
   motor vehicle license and registration laws of this state.
   
   C. The temporary permit shall not be issued to any person, firm or
   corporation owning or possessing a commercial vehicle, truck,
   truck-tractor, trailer, semitrailer or motor bus, who has been
   apprehended for violating the registration laws of this state. If
   apprehended, the vehicle shall be immediately subject to such
   registration laws. Possession of the temporary permit shall not affect
   any liability or duty which the owner or operator of a vehicle might
   otherwise have by law. An operator of a vehicle possessing an expired,
   altered or undated temporary permit shall be deemed to be operating an
   unregistered motor vehicle and shall be subject to registration and
   penalties therefor as provided by law.
   
   D. The Commission may enter into an agreement with any person or
   corporation located within or without the state for transmission of
   temporary permits for a commercial vehicle by way of a facsimile
   machine or other device when the Commission determines that such
   agreement is in the best interests of the state.
   
   E. Any provision of this act providing for proportional registration
   under reciprocal agreements and the International Registration Plan
   that relate to the promulgation of rules shall not be subject to the
   provisions of Section 1151 of this title. The Commission may adopt
   such rules as it deems necessary to administer the provisions of this
   section. The Commission may prescribe an application form for the
   temporary permit and such other forms as it deems appropriate.
   
   F. The provisions of this section shall not apply to tour bus
   operations issued permits pursuant to Section 1171 of this title, or
   to vehicles entering this state for the express purpose of
   transporting the resources and equipment necessary to support
   production activities of the motion picture, television and video film
   industries operating within the state. Any such vehicle properly
   registered under the laws of another state or not registered with this
   state pursuant to the provisions of the International Registration
   Plan and used for the above-stated purpose shall not be subject to the
   registration requirements as set forth in Section 1101 et seq. of this
   title while conducting said business.
