Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. § 2153, Title 21, Delaware Code of 1953, is amended to read as follows:

§ 2153. Temporary or limited permits; number plates for stock cars

(a) The fee for a temporary or limited permit shall be One Dollar ($1.00).

(b) In addition to obtaining a temporary or limited permit as provided in subsection (a) of this section, owners of stock cars of the type used for racing may apply to the Department upon appropriate forms provided by the Department, for one or more pairs of special plates or single special plates, as are appropriate to the particular type of vehicle. The Department, upon approving any such application, shall issue to the applicant a certificate containing the applicant's name and address and other appropriate information. The Department shall then issue to such applicant special plates of a design, size, material and color determined by the Department. Each plate or pair of plates issued, however, shall contain a number or symbol distinguishing same from other plates issued under this chapter. The owner of any such vehicle may tow, or have such vehicle towed, upon the highways upon condition that such vehicle display thereon in the manner prescribed in this chapter for regular number plates, the special plate or plates issued to such owner as provided by this subsection. All such special plates issued shall expire at a date to be determined by the Department, but may be extended from time to time by the person to whom such plates were issued upon application to the Department and payment of the regular fee. No such special plates shall be issued until the applicant has paid a fee of Five Dollars ($5.00) for each set of such special plates.

Approved May 13, 1953.
