§17A-4-4. Transfers to dealers and others.
When the transferee of a vehicle is a dealer who holds the
same for resale and lawfully operates the same under dealer's
plates, such dealer shall not be required to obtain a new
registration of said vehicle or be required to forward the
certificate of title to the department, but such dealer upon
transferring his title or interest to another person shall execute
and acknowledge an assignment and warranty of title upon the
certificate of title and deliver the same not later than sixty days
from date of sale to the person to whom such transfer is made.
When the transferee of a vehicle does not drive such vehicle
or permit it to be driven upon the highways, such transferee shall
not be required to obtain a new registration of said vehicle, but
such transferee shall be required within sixty days from the date
of such transfer to forward the certificate of title to the
department accompanied by an application for a new certificate of
title in his name.
