CROSS REFERENCE:

Interstate motor carriers, registration and regulation of pursuant to International Registration Plan transferred to highways and transportation commission, 226.008

(1960) Motor vehicles owned by Colorado and Illinois corporations which were not registered in those states but were registered in other states where great part of their operations occurred, were not entitled to reciprocal exemption since the word "residence" as applied to a corporate owner means the state of its incorporation. State v. Riss and Company (Mo.), 335 S.W.2d 118.

(2004) Reciprocal exemption only applies if nonresident owner timely registers vehicle elsewhere.  Holm v. Director of Revenue, 148 S.W.3d 313 (Mo.banc).
