Dealers cannot issue a TOP when:
1. A vehicle will be registered under the International Registration Plan
2. Vehicle is a salvage titled
3. Vehicle is not self-propelled (i.e., trailer).
4. Dealer did not sell the vehicle.
The state of Georgia does not look kindly on people that misuse Temporary Operating Permit
or TOP. Do not let individuals sell you a Temporary Operating Permit or TOP to put on your salvage vehicle
while you're waiting for an inspection. Even after the inspection and your vehicle passed, do not be tempted to put
one on your vehicle because it can be impounded and cost you a ton of money to get it out of the impound
