   A. All vehicles owned by members of the Armed Forces of the United
   States or their spouses assigned to duty in this state in compliance
   with official military or naval orders or owned by the spouse, who
   resides in Oklahoma, of a member of the Armed Forces of the United
   States serving in a foreign country, which vehicles are not being used
   in a trade or business or for any commercial purpose, are hereby
   classified specially for vehicle license and registration purposes in
   this state. Any such vehicle which is not registered and licensed for
   the current year in the state of residence or domicile of the
   serviceman or of the spouse owning the vehicle must be registered for
   the current year in Oklahoma as herein provided, except that any such
   vehicle which has been licensed in some other state by such serviceman
   or spouse while the serviceman was stationed in said other state may
   be operated in this state for the remainder of the year or period for
   which it is licensed. If such vehicle currently is registered with the
   Armed Forces of the United States rather than being registered in a
   state and the serviceman is transferred to a duty station within this
   state pursuant to military orders, the serviceman or spouse owning the
   vehicle shall not be required to register the vehicle in this state
   for a period of thirty (30) days after the date the serviceman is
   required to report for duty pursuant to said military.
   
   The serviceman or spouse applying for the registration of any such
   vehicle shall submit an appropriate statement, to be attached to the
   vehicle registration application, showing the following: A description
   of the vehicle owned by applicant; the state and address of the
   applicant's legal residence or domicile; that applicant or applicant's
   spouse is on active duty in the Armed Forces of the United States
   assigned or stationed at a named location in compliance with official
   military orders. The statement shall be signed by the applicant and
   certified to by a proper officer of the organization to which
   applicant is assigned for duty or where the applicant is the spouse of
   such serviceman serving in a foreign country the statement shall be
   signed by said spouse under the penalties of perjury. The application
   shall be accompanied by a registration fee of Fifteen Dollars
   ($15.00).
   
   B. Any Oklahoma resident who is stationed out of state due to an
   official assignment of the Armed Forces of the United States or their
   spouse shall be entitled to register his or her vehicle or vehicles in
   this state for the same registration fee afforded members of the Armed
   Forces of the United States assigned to duty in this state pursuant to
   subsection A of this section. Such Oklahoma resident or their spouse
   who is stationed out of state due to an official assignment of the
   Armed Forces of the United States shall be exempt from the vehicle
   inspection requirements of Section 1105 of this title; provided, such
   Oklahoma resident or their spouse who is stationed out of state
   presents valid documentation acceptable to the Oklahoma Tax Commission
   evidencing that such inspection has been made by an out-of-state
   authority acceptable to the Oklahoma Tax Commission.
   
   Any Oklahoma resident who is stationed out of state due to an official
   assignment of the Armed Forces of the United States may authorize his
   or her parents to register his or her vehicle or vehicles as provided
   for in this subsection if the serviceman is not able to register the
   vehicle at the appropriate time.
