Hi Jim - is it NEW or NEW TO YOU?
There are forms on the DMV website - you will have to pay Use Tax (same rate as Sales Tax) when you bring it in.
You have, I believe, [b]10 DAYS
from when it first rolls into the State to get it registered. Else there is a stiff late fee.
You will need to have a VIN
verification. It can be done AT the DMV - take it with you when you register it, and have the clerk to the verification. (Mine didn't do it, and my "application" got bounced back - i ended up going to the local police in our small town and they did it for free).
Check with your Ins company - especially if new - you probably want comp and collision on a new rig
Depending on size you can get "permanent" trailer plates.
Use the DMV appointment system, it DOES work.
Then, GO CAMPING!!!!!!!!!!!!
So if i purchase a rig out of state and bring it in to californa
what is the process to get california plates...
does it need to be inspected? chp? dmv?
anybody know costs involved..or is it just a paper process....
