Ever seen a motor vehicle with different registration number plate, something marked with like “TR” or “TEMP” and wondered what it could be? Well, that’s the temporary vehicle registration number. A temporary registration number is usually assigned by the dealership from which the Car / Bike is purchased.
Under the provision of section 43 of the Central Motor Vehicle Act, temporary registration certificate can be given to a vehicle only in case when owner of a vehicle wants to take his vehicle to another state.
The temporary registration is also known as transit registration because the destination point is also mentioned in it where the vehicle has to reach. This registration is done at M.L.O. (HQ). The Transport Department can also delegate this registration power to the vehicle manufacturers or other concerned zonal offices.
