is privileged to obtain annually under this section a distinctive license tag for
any motor vehicle registered in his name upon payment of the road and bridge privilege
taxes, ad valorem taxes and registration fees as prescribed by law for private carriers
of passengers, pickup trucks and other noncommercial motor vehicles. The distinctive license tag so issued shall be of such color and design as the Department
of Revenue may prescribe and shall consist of such letters or numbers, or both, as
may be necessary to distinguish each license tag or plate. The registration year of such motor vehicle shall commence the first day of the
month in which application for registration is made, as provided in Section 27-19-31.

be made to the county tax collector on forms prescribed by the Department of Revenue. Proof of ownership of a particular motor vehicle for which a license tag is requested
must be shown at time of application for such tag.

by a distinctive license tag under this section. The regular license tag must be surrendered to the tax collector upon issuance of
the distinctive license tag under this section. The tax collector shall issue up to two (2) license decals for each distinctive
license tag issued under this section, which will expire the same month and year as
the regular license tag. A license tag issued under this section shall not be transferable to any other person.
