4. A register in which owners and operators of heavy vehicles are to be registered and containing the information referred to in sections 7, 12 and 35 is hereby established at the Commission des transports du Québec under the name “Registre des propriétaires et des exploitants de véhicules lourds”.
The Government may, by regulation, exempt any group or any class of persons it determines from the requirement to be registered. The exemption may be subject to conditions and be granted for a limited period of time. Persons so exempted are deemed not to be governed by this Act insofar as the persons comply with the conditions, if any, imposed on them.
