    Default Connecticut Motor Vehicle Farm License Plates

    I finally found this info for Conn of the conn Ag site. I thought it might be of interest to others. Andy


    Connecticut Motor Vehicle Farm License Plates


    CONNECTICUT FARM PLATES - Section 14-49(q)
    All the following conditions must be met for a vehicle to qualify for the farm exemption: (1) the vehicle must be used exclusively in agricultural production; (2) an agricultural sales tax exemption permit must be issued by the Department of Revenue Services; and (3) gross farm income in the preceding calendar year was not less than two thousand five hundred dollars. Farm plated vehicles are prohibited from transporting goods for hire (transporting products of others for pay).
    Application
    The initial application for a farm plate must be made in person at a Department of Motor Vehicles office. If the vehicle being registered is 10 year old or more, or was last registered out of state, it will have to be inspected. Applicants are required to submit, along with the completed farm plate application, an Agricultural Sales Tax Exemption Permit (OR-248) issued by the Department of Revenue Services.
    Mileage
    Farm plated vehicles are not subject to mileage restrictions in Connecticut.
    Emissions
    Farm plated vehicles are not subject to Connecticut emissions inspections.
    Out of State Travel
    Vehicles with Connecticut Farm Plates may travel in states that also have a farm or agricultural registration law. However, the driver of the Connecticut vehicle must comply with the farm registration laws of the state within which he is traveling.
    Farm Tractors
    Registration of farm (agricultural) tractors and self-propelled agricultural equipment is not required. Farm tractors and self-propelled agricultural equipment may not be used on public roads for transporting good for hire (transporting products of others for pay or for other commercial purposes. When operating on a public road at speeds less than the posted speed limit, the driver of a farm tractor or self-propelled agricultural equipment must yield to vehicles approaching from behind. Farm tractors and self-propelled agricultural equipment not designed or employed in general highway transportation are not permitted on limited access highways.

    So, this looks like if you're doing work for yourself, and using a tractor on a secondary road, and not carrying goods for hire, you can operate your tractor on the road without registration, plates, permission, etc? As long as you yield to those behind? Sounds good to me, if that's all you're doing.

    Yes, Conn is very allowing as far as what you can do with farm equipment on the roads. Unlike Mass where you are and I used to be where you can't even cross the roads without plates, insurance and being a licensed driver. Conn also does not require insurance or being a licensed or of age operator.
