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

Section 1. § 2124 (a), Title 21, Delaware Code, is repealed and a new Section 2124 (a) is enacted in lieu thereof to read as follows:

A manufacturer or dealer owning any vehicle of a type otherwise required to be registered under this title, may operate or move the same upon the highways when such vehicle is used (1) in the motor vehicle business of such manufacturer or dealer; or (2) for the personal pleasure of such manufacturer or dealer; or the members of his family, when operated by such manufacturer or dealer, or an immediate member of his family, or, when such manufacturer or dealer is a corporation, for the personal pleasure of not more than three officers thereof, who are actively engaged in its business, or the members of their families, or for the personal pleasure of the regular employees of such manufacturer, dealer, or corporation when operated by such employee; or (3) for teaching a new operator how to operate a vehicle, if such new operator has procured a learner's permit for such new operator to take an examination for an operator's license; or (4) for testing such vehicles in the possession of such manufacturer or dealer; or (5) for demonstrating vehicles in the possession of such manufacturer or dealer. Such vehicles may be operated by a prospective purchaser, when licensed as an operator or permittee, without registering each such vehicle, upon condition that any such vehicle display thereon, in the manner prescribed by this chapter for regular number plates, a special plate or plates issued to such owner as provided by this section.
