    Default Can a Car Dealer Permanently Use Dealer Tags on His Personal Vehicle

    A car dealer from Connecticut owns a home in Florida, and has cars that he keeps permanently at that location. They are personal vehicles, not for sale and not part of his inventory. He uses Connecticut dealer plates on the car. Is it lawful to use dealership tags on a personal vehicle instead of registering the vehicle?

    That is not a permitted use of dealer tags under either Florida Law (Florida Statutes, Sec. 320.13, "dealer license plates... are valid for use on motor vehicles or mobile homes owned by the dealer to whom such plates are issued while the motor vehicles are in inventory and for sale, or while being operated in connection with such dealer’s business, but are not valid for use for hire"), or Connecticut law (Connecticut Statutes, Sec. 14-63-15, "Dealer plates may be used for the demonstrating, testing and delivering of new, used and repaired motor vehicles, for service cars, wreckers and any use connected with a licensee’s business").
