    (625 ILCS 5/3-405)  (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 3-405)
    Sec. 3-405. Application for registration.
    (a) Every owner of a vehicle subject to registration under
this Code shall make application to the Secretary of State for
the registration of such vehicle upon the appropriate form or
forms furnished by the Secretary. Every such application shall
bear the signature of the owner written with pen and ink and
        1. The name, domicile address, as defined in Section
    1-115.5 of this Code, (except as otherwise provided in this
    paragraph 1) and mail address of the owner or business
    address of the owner if a firm, association or corporation.
    If the mailing address is a post office box number, the
    address listed on the driver license record may be used to
    verify residence. A police officer, a deputy sheriff, an
    elected sheriff, a law enforcement officer for the
    Department of State Police, or a fire investigator, a
    state's attorney, an assistant state's attorney, or a
    state's attorney special investigator may elect to furnish
    the address of the headquarters of the governmental entity
    or police district where he or she works instead of his or
    her domicile address, in which case that address shall be
    deemed to be his or her domicile address for all purposes
    under this Chapter 3. The spouse and children of a person
    who may elect under this paragraph 1 to furnish the address
    of the headquarters of the government entity or police
    district where the person works instead of the person's
    domicile address may, if they reside with that person, also
    elect to furnish the address of the headquarters of the
    government entity or police district where the person works
    as their domicile address, in which case that address shall
    be deemed to be their domicile address for all purposes
    under this Chapter 3. In this paragraph 1: (A) "police
    officer" has the meaning ascribed to "policeman" in Section
    10-3-1 of the Illinois Municipal Code; (B) "deputy sheriff"
    means a deputy sheriff appointed under Section 3-6008 of
    the Counties Code; (C) "elected sheriff" means a sheriff
    commissioned pursuant to Section 3-6001 of the Counties
    Code; and (D) "fire investigator" means a person classified
    as a peace officer under the Peace Officer Fire
    Investigation Act; and (E) "state's attorney", "assistant
    state's attorney", and "state's attorney special
    investigator" mean a state's attorney, assistant state's
    attorney, and state's attorney special investigator
    commissioned or appointed under Division 3-9 of the
    Counties Code.
        2. A description of the vehicle, including such
    information as is required in an application for a
    certificate of title, determined under such standard
    rating as may be prescribed by the Secretary.
        3. Information relating to the insurance policy for the
    motor vehicle, including the name of the insurer which
    issued the policy, the policy number, and the expiration
    date of the policy.
        4. Such further information as may reasonably be
    required by the Secretary to enable him to determine
    whether the vehicle is lawfully entitled to registration
    and the owner entitled to a certificate of title.
        5. An affirmation by the applicant that all information
    set forth is true and correct. If the application is for
    the registration of a motor vehicle, the applicant also
    shall affirm that the motor vehicle is insured as required
    by this Code, that such insurance will be maintained
    throughout the period for which the motor vehicle shall be
    registered, and that neither the owner, nor any person
    operating the motor vehicle with the owner's permission,
    shall operate the motor vehicle unless the required
    insurance is in effect. If the person signing the
    affirmation is not the sole owner of the vehicle, such
    person shall be deemed to have affirmed on behalf of all
    the owners of the vehicle. If the person signing the
    affirmation is not an owner of the vehicle, such person
    shall be deemed to have affirmed on behalf of the owner or
    owners of the vehicle. The lack of signature on the
    application shall not in any manner exempt the owner or
    owners from any provisions, requirements or penalties of
    this Code.
    (b) When such application refers to a new vehicle purchased
from a dealer the application shall be accompanied by a
Manufacturer's Statement of Origin from the dealer, and a
statement showing any lien retained by the dealer.
