    Subdivision 1. Application, fee, requirements. Whenever a person seeks to operate a motor
vehicle or tow a manufactured home owned by a nonresident upon the highways of this state
solely for the purpose of transporting it from a point outside the state to another point outside
the state, and such vehicle is not otherwise exempt from registration and taxation as provided by
law, such owner shall not be required to register the vehicle and pay the tax but in lieu thereof
shall apply to the registrar for a one-way trip permit and pay a fee of $10. Unless such act of
transportation also requires approval by the commissioner of transportation as provided in section
169.86, such person may be permitted to proceed with such vehicle into the state, not to exceed 35
miles, to the nearest city wherein a deputy registrar is located before securing such permit. The
application for permit shall be in such form and contain such information as the registrar may
determine. Any motor vehicle operated under such permit shall carry no load. As used in this
section, "person" includes a natural person, firm, copartnership, association, or corporation.
    Subd. 2. Proceeds to highway user fund. Fees collected pursuant to subdivision 1 shall be
paid into the state treasury and credited to the highway user tax distribution fund.
