Dealer Coach  The Dealer Coach tag is not a collegiate plate, but because it is tied exclusively to the collegiate world, we have elected to include it in this section. University athletic coaches are often given extra amenities by their university and/or businesses. One common such perquisite is the free use of automobiles. In such cases in New Mexico the dealership retains the car in its inventory as an unsold vehicle, and it therefore remains untitled. It is differentiated from regular dealer demonstration vehicles by having a “Dealer Coach” plate registered to it.
