The commissioner may upon application issue to a banking institution, insurance company, entity in the business of repossessing motor vehicles, finance company, or other type of lending or financial institution, or a person engaged exclusively in wrecking or dismantling vehicles, a paper sticker or decal to be affixed to the left side of the rear window of a motor vehicle or at a place on any other type vehicle as designated by the commissioner. The sticker or decal shall be of a size to be designated by the commissioner and shall be serially numbered and shall have provision thereon to indicate the date of issuance. The division shall charge a fee of $1 per sticker. The sticker or decal shall be valid for the operation of a vehicle, whether under its own power or while being towed, one time only over the streets or highways of this state, and upon being once affixed to a vehicle shall become invalid for subsequent use on that or any other vehicle. The commissioner may require, as a condition for the issuance of the permit, insurance as he or she determines appropriate.
