2009 New Hampshire Statutes
TITLE XXI — MOTOR VEHICLES (Includes Chapters 259 - 269)
CHAPTER 261 — CERTIFICATES OF TITLE AND REGISTRATION OF VEHICLES
Section 261:84 Farm Plates.


    I. A truck, tractor-truck, or semi-trailer shall qualify for farm registration rates and number plates and shall be driven with such registration only if such vehicle is used solely for the transportation of agricultural products produced on and meant to be used in connection with the operation of a farm or farms owned, operated, or occupied by the registrant. Additionally, any vehicle which qualifies for farm plates may transport or tow an implement of husbandry. A vehicle which qualifies for farm registration and number plates shall not be used for the transportation of wood and lumber for sale other than from such farms on which the production of wood and lumber is incidental to other farm operations, nor shall such trucks be used for the retail delivery of milk.
    II. This section shall be construed as authorizing the holder of farm plates to operate the vehicle while it is empty so long as it is being used generally to accomplish the purposes allowed in this section, and to transport within such vehicle incidental personal property such as food, tools, and clothing.
    III. To be eligible for the issuance of a farm vehicle registration, the applicant shall sign the following form which the treasurer of a city or such other official as the city government may designate or the town clerk shall provide. This form shall be provided to the applicant upon request without further evidence from the applicant that the plate shall be used for purposes of this section.
    I, the undersigned, fully understand the limitations concerning the use of trucks, tractor-trucks, or semi-trailers registered under RSA 261:84, and hereby certify that my vehicle will be used only for agricultural and farming purposes and uses incidental thereto.
