The temporary clearance allows interstate travel in the same manner as a permanent prorate license but is only valid for a maximum of 45 days or until the end of the current registration year.  Once issued, licensing of each unit commences upon the date of issuance of the temporary or until the end of the licensing period.  The temporary cannot be voided once issued and licensing cannot be canceled.
