   A. Upon each pickup, truck or truck-tractor owned and operated by one
   or more farmers and used primarily for farm use, and not for
   commercial or industrial purposes, the license fee shall be Thirty
   Dollars ($30.00). As used in this section, the term "pickup" shall
   mean a small, light truck with an open back or box used for hauling
   and designed primarily for the carrying of property rather than
   people. The term "truck" shall mean a motor vehicle designed or
   converted primarily for carrying or hauling farm commodities,
   property, livestock, or equipment, rather than people.
   
   B. The fees assessed pursuant to this section shall not apply to
   trailers or semitrailers or combinations thereof used primarily for
   farm use and for the transportation of products of the farm by the
   producer thereof. Such fee shall not apply to any trailer or
   semitrailer or combinations thereof when used primarily for the
   transportation of any article or articles owned by the operator of
   such trailer or semitrailer or combinations thereof and not used in
   the furtherance of or incident to any commercial or industrial
   enterprise. The provisions of Section 1134.2 of this title shall apply
   to any trailers or semitrailers when used primarily for the
   transportation of logs, ties, stave bolts and posts, direct from
   forest to sawmill.
   
   C. For the purpose of this section, a trailer or semitrailer or
   combination thereof owned by a farmer and used primarily for the
   purpose of transporting farm products to market or for the purpose of
   transporting to the farm material or things to be used thereon, and
   not for commercial or industrial purposes, may be registered for One
   Dollar ($1.00); provided, any such trailer used by the holder of a
   certificate of convenience and necessity issued by the Oklahoma
   Corporation Commission or the Interstate Commerce Commission shall be
   conclusively presumed to be used in and for a commercial use, and must
   be licensed as such, paying the license fees provided in Section 1133
   of this title.
   
   D. Before a party shall be allowed to purchase a license plate or
   claim an exception or exemption under this section, the party shall:
   
   1. Show an income tax Schedule F for the preceding year; or
   
   2. Present a valid exemption card issued pursuant to the provisions of
   Section 1358.1 of Title 68 of the Oklahoma Statutes.
   
   A violation shall be grounds for revocation of driver's license. Any
   person who signs said affidavit as required by this section when such
   person does not believe that the information in the affidavit is true
   or knows it is not true, upon conviction, shall be guilty of perjury
   and shall be punished as provided for by law.
   
   E. Any person owning a truck upon which the farm truck license fee has
   been paid in Oklahoma for the current year and whose truck may be
   needed during grain harvests or other seasonal farming activities for
   hauling farm products other than his or her own, or for hauling
   gravel, shale or other road materials for rural roads, may make
   application with the Oklahoma Tax Commission for a short term
   commercial license for such truck for a period of time not to exceed
   ninety (90) days.
   
   F. Upon such application, the Tax Commission shall issue a temporary
   commercial truck license and register the truck upon payment of the
   following fees:
   
   1. For thirty (30) days a fee equal to one-eighth (1/8) of the annual
   commercial license fee required for such truck.
   
   2. For sixty (60) days a fee equal to one-fourth (1/4) of the annual
   commercial license fee required for such truck.
   
   3. For ninety (90) days a fee equal to three-eighths (3/8) of the
   annual commercial license fee required for such truck.
   
   G. Provided, however, the provisions of this section shall not apply
   to the transportation of persons or property for hire.
