Subject:  Conversion of Vehicles to a Dump Truck

Advisory Date:  05/17/07                  Implementation Date:  Immediately

Advisory Number:  T07-01





                        Effective immediately, all heavy trucks and tractor trucks with a vehicle type of TR that have been modified to a dump truck must be processed as assembled from parts (ASPT) vehicles.  Do not perform a change of body/correction transaction on these vehicles.  Send all applicants to their local DMV Regional Office for an ASPT inspection. 


                        The DMV Regional Offices will inspect, per section 319.14(1)(b), the vehicle and all associated paperwork and if the vehicle is found to be in compliance, an “FLA” number will be issued.  The inspection fee of $40 and all other title fees will be applicable.  The DMV Regional Office will process a corrected certificate of title showing the make as “ASPT.”


                        If you have any questions concerning this matter, please contact your local Tax Collector Help Desk Representative.
