Application for Appointment
(1)An application for letter of appointment to provide towing services for the Department shall be filed by the authorized agent or representative of a tow business with the Patrol Services Division on a form prescribed by the Department. In case of a tow business that is a partnership, each partner will apply on the form prescribed by the Department. In the case of a tow business that is a corporation, the Department may require that each of the present, and any subsequent officers, managers, and stockholders holding 10% or more of the total issued and outstanding stock of the applicant corporation complete an application form.
(2)The application form will be assigned a document number by the Patrol Services Division which shall be its yearly identification number for all matters relating to appointments, granted or denied, and any other correspondence thereafter.
(3)The filing of an application for a letter of appointment to provide towing to the Department from a non-preference list does not in itself authorize a tow business to provide towing services pursuant to these regulations until a letter of appointment has been granted by the Department. The Department shall not call a towing business for non-preference towing unless a current/valid yearly appointment letter has been issued in connection with such tow business by the Department. Nothing herein shall prohibit the Department from calling a towing business upon a specific request of the person responsible for the vehicle or his agent. An appointment letter will not be granted until all application sections of the application form have been completed by the authorized agent or representative of a tow business.
(4)During implementation of the Administrative Rules, the present non-preference tow list system will be in effect until such time that the Administrative Rules are in place at the Patrol Services Division of the Department.
