VEHICLE CODE
SECTION 8100-8104



8100.  An application for apportioned registration received on and
after January 1, 2008, and filed pursuant to Article 4 (commencing
with Section 8050) shall contain the following information:
   (a) The United States Department of Transportation Number issued
to the person responsible for the safe operation of each vehicle
being registered.
   (b) The taxpayer identification number corresponding to the United
States Department of Transportation number provided in the
apportioned registration application. The taxpayer identification
number may consist of the federal employer identification number or
the social security number, as applicable.
   (c) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the taxpayer
identification number provided pursuant to this section is
confidential and shall not be disclosed by the department except to
law enforcement or a federal agency, or as required by law.



8101.  In addition to the reasons specified in Section 4750 or 4751,
the department shall refuse an application for apportioned
registration for the following grounds:
   (a) The applicant has failed to furnish the department with
information required in the application under Section 8100.
   (b) The person responsible for the safety of the vehicle or fleet
is prohibited from operating in interstate commerce by a federal
agency.



8102.  (a) In addition to the reasons specified in Section 8800, the
department may suspend the apportioned registration of a vehicle or
a fleet, when the person responsible for the safety of the vehicle or
a fleet of vehicles is prohibited from operating in interstate
commerce by a federal agency.
   (b) Whenever the department suspends the apportioned registration
of a vehicle or a fleet pursuant to subdivision (a), the department
may refuse the issuance of vehicle registration as authorized
pursuant to Section 4751.
   (c) Whenever the department suspends the apportioned registration
under subdivision (a), the department shall furnish the person
responsible for the vehicle or fleet with written notice of the
suspension.
   (d) When an apportioned registration is suspended pursuant to this
section, and that suspension is based wholly or in part on the
failure of the person to maintain a vehicle or a fleet in safe
operating condition, the person to whom the registration was issued
shall not lease, or otherwise allow, another person to operate a
vehicle that is subject to the suspension during the period of the
suspension.
   (e) A person shall not knowingly lease, operate, dispatch, or
otherwise utilize a vehicle from another person whose apportioned
registration is suspended, when that suspension is based wholly or in
part on the failure of the person to maintain a vehicle or a fleet
in safe operating condition.
   (f) The apportioned registration of a vehicle or a fleet, that was
suspended because the vehicle or fleet is prohibited from operating
in interstate commerce by a federal agency may be reinstated upon
notification from the federal agency that the prohibition has been
lifted.
   (g) Notwithstanding any other provision of this code, before an
apportioned registration may be reissued after a suspension is
terminated, there shall, in addition to other fees required by this
code, be paid to the department a fee of one hundred fifty dollars
(0). This fee shall be deposited in the Motor Vehicle Account to
cover the department's cost of administering this program.



8103.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this code, a hearing
shall not be provided when the suspension is based solely on
notification by a federal agency that interstate operation is
prohibited.



8104.  Except as provided in subdivision (e), a vehicle or a fleet
for which the apportioned registration has been suspended pursuant to
this article shall not be operated in interstate or intrastate
commerce unless evidence is provided to the department that the
vehicle or the fleet is to be operated by a person whose apportioned
registration is not subject to a suspension pursuant to this article
and who has a valid apportioned registration pursuant to Article 4
(commencing with Section 8050) or Division 14.85.
