One of the many things that we have had to adjust to during this pandemic is the need to make DMV appointments for services. As a result, there are many vehicles that are operating without proper tags and registration. The Office of the Sheriff wants to remind all of the residents and visitors traveling within Franklin County that Farm Use tags have specific requirements per the DMV, and there will be an increased enforcement for vehicles that should not be operating with Farm Use tags.
In order to meet DMV conditions to operate an unregistered vehicle under Farm Use tags, the vehicle must meet specific conditions for it's weight and operations. For further information on what is required for Farm Use tags, please visit VA DMV
