Delivery of vehicle on dealer temporary permit.

(1) How does a Washington licensed vehicle dealer deliver a vehicle using a dealer temporary permit?
(a) Washington licensed vehicle dealers may deliver a vehicle that is not currently registered, or that does not have valid Washington license plates, tabs, decals, or gross weight, or the current tabs will expire within forty-five days of the date of delivery, by using an e-permit or a hard copy (paper/card stock) dealer temporary permit.
(b) The application for title part of the dealer temporary permit form must be properly and completely filled out by the selling or leasing dealer, including the dealer's report of sale and the date on which the vehicle is physically delivered to the purchaser or lessee. If license based on gross weight is required, the amount of gross weight purchased must be clearly shown. The application must be signed by the registered owner(s) or lessee.
(c) The Washington licensed vehicle dealer must collect all fees required for titling and registration of a vehicle.
(d) For e-permits, the permit printed by the e-permitting system must display the expiration date and e-permit number. The date of expiration is forty-five calendar days from the date the vehicle is physically delivered to the purchaser or lessee.
(e) For hard copy (paper/card stock) permits, the Washington licensed vehicle dealer must detach the card stock portion of the dealer temporary permit and record the date of expiration in dark, bold letters and numbers on the permit side of that copy. The date of expiration is forty-five calendar days from the date the vehicle is physically delivered to the purchaser or lessee.
(f) The application copies must be used by the Washington licensed dealer to apply for title and to complete licensing of the vehicle. Except as provided in RCW 46.70.180(8), when a second temporary permit is authorized; the selling dealer must submit the application and all titling and licensing fees to the department of licensing or an authorized licensing agent within forty-five calendar days from the date the vehicle is physically delivered to the purchaser or lessee. The date that the selling or leasing dealer physically delivers the vehicle to the purchaser or lessee will start the forty-five day interval of an application for a certificate of title in the purchaser's or lessee's name. Additionally, the director may excuse late applications only in situations where applications are delayed, for reasons beyond the control of the dealer.
(g) The e-permit or hard copy (paper/card stock) dealer temporary permit, temporary vehicle registration, and a purchase order identifying the vehicle and the date that the vehicle was physically delivered to the purchaser or lessee must be carried in the vehicle or the towing vehicle at all times the vehicle is operated on the dealer temporary permit.
(h) The e-permit or hard copy (paper/card stock) dealer temporary permit must be displayed on the inside of the rear window in the lower left corner, or enclosed in a moisture proof protective case securely attached in the rear license plate holder, with the expiration date visible to one standing behind the vehicle.
(i) The e-permit or hard copy (paper/card stock) dealer temporary permit is valid for not more than forty-five calendar days starting with the date that the vehicle is physically delivered to the purchaser or lessee.
(j) The e-permit or hard copy (paper/card stock) dealer temporary permit will not be issued:
(i) For a dealer inventoried vehicle that has not been sold or a dealer or dealer-employee operated vehicle;
(ii) As a demonstration permit;
(iii) For a vehicle processed as a courtesy delivery;
(iv) For out-of-state residents unless Washington registration is intentionally being obtained.
(k) Fees paid for e-permit or hard copy (paper/card stock) dealer temporary permit application forms are not refundable unless the dealer ceases doing business as a vehicle dealer.
(l) Washington licensed dealers must maintain a record of each dealer temporary permit acquisition and distribution including the following:
(i) Date and location of purchase of each permit and the permit number;
(ii) Identification of vehicles delivered on temporary permits;
(iii) Dates of vehicle sales, leases and deliveries.
(2) Customer's complete name.
