Upon written application by the responsible event sponsor to the commissioner, special operating permits for limited periods of time not to exceed 30 days may be issued to operators of vehicles from states that do not require registration when the special operating permits are to be used in connection with an organized group outing, trail ride, race, rally, or other promotional event. The permit shall be in the format prescribed by the commissioner and is valid only under the terms and conditions specified by the permit for the event. The permit must be carried by the vehicle operator.
If a special operating permit is granted with conditions or is denied, the applicant may file with the commissioner a written request for review. The commissioner shall review the permit application and render a decision within 15 days of the request for review.
If the applicant wishes to appeal the decision of the commissioner after review under subpart 2, the applicant may file with the commissioner a written request for a contested case hearing under Minnesota Statutes, chapter 14.
