The fee for such registration shall be $5 per annum, whether the registration is issued for a yearly period or only a portion thereof. Any vehicle so registered and any truck registered pursuant to the provisions of 39:3-25 of this Title may draw not more than one vehicle used exclusively on the farm and a vehicle so drawn need not be registered. A vehicle registered pursuant to this section or to R.S.39:3-25 may be used under contract with a municipality to remove snow upon a public highway.
