Any vehicle subject to registration may be operated within a disaster area or region
for the purpose of assisting in disaster relief work, under a special permit to be
issued by the department for such purpose, without the registration of such vehicle.
Said permit shall be issued only if the Department of Transportation or the responsible
local authority has determined that the vehicle is necessary for such purpose, and
shall be valid only during a period of a state of emergency as proclaimed by the Governor
under the provisions of the California Emergency Services Act. 1
