Extension of time to deliver certificate of title to secondhand vehicle--Temporary
If a licensed dealer does not deliver title within thirty days as required by § 32-3-7,
and the dealer has satisfied any lien in compliance with chapter 32-6B, 32-6C, 32-7A, or 32-7B and
the delay in delivering title was caused because the lien holder failed to release the lien or deliver
the title document in accordance with § 32-3-44, the dealer may request additional time to deliver
title to the retail purchaser. The dealer's request for an extension shall be made within forty days of
the date of sale. Any request after the forty days shall be denied and the dealer is in violation of § 32-3-7. The dealer shall provide to the department documentation to support the steps taken to satisfy
the lien in a timely manner and request the title. If the department finds the request for additional
time is substantiated, the department may authorize the issuance of another temporary license permit
not to exceed thirty days.
