The application for exemption must be signed and sworn to by or on behalf of the applicant.

(b) The application form may be obtained from the Statutory Documents Section of the Office of the Secretary of State, P.O. Box 13550, Austin, Texas 78711-3550. It is also available on the secretary of state web site at http://www.sos.state.tx.us/statdoc/forms/3006.doc. See form 3006.

(c) The application for exemption from the security requirements must be submitted with the application for registration.

(d) If the secretary of state determines that the applicant meets the requirements for exemption, the secretary shall issue a certificate of exemption providing that the certificate holder is not required to file a surety bond or post other security for the location registered.

(e) If an applicant has been granted an exemption under §702.202(2) of the Act, the applicant must submit a statement signed by or on behalf of the applicant continues to comply with the requirements of §702.202(2), on the third anniversary of the initial registration and every three years thereafter.
