Volume 2 of the 19-volume Highway Safety Program Manual (which provides guidance to State and local governments on preferred highway safety practices) describes the purposes and specific objectives of motor vehicle registration.

Program planning and development and operations for establishing, organizing, and implementing vehicle registration goals are considered in terms of vehicle ownership, weight, maintenance, and registration. Registration standards include application; refusal of application; issuance of registration plates and cards; display of registration; renewal; transfer; and authority to cancel, suspend, or revoke registration. Registration system requirements, procedures, and feasibility aspects are also outlined. Criteria for program evaluation and local government participation are specified. The function of operational, management information, program evaluation, and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports is explained. Appendixes are devoted to the Highway Safety Program Standard Two--Motor Vehicle Registration, a glossary of definitions, references a list of representative projects, and a list of resource organizations.
