Vehicle Registration

Couple of weeks ago, I got my vehicle registration forms in the mail.  Forgot about them.  Dug them out today, while looking for something else, and realized that the registration on my work car expired on 2/28/2015.  Oh, crap, I've got to go to the DMV tomorrow.

Until I realized I could register my vehicle online.  I went to the DMV website, renewed my registration, paid the late fee, and printed a receipt for the glovebox, in case one of my brethren wants to write me a ticket for having an expired license plate.  The DMV promises me that they'll send me a new regisration and a sticker for my license plate, posthaste.  Sure they will.

But, I didn't have to go sit in the DMV office for an hour.  That's a benefit.  We'll see how long it takes them to send the new sticker.  I'm not holding my breath.

Similar thing happened to me. Provided my Driver License at the Bank; it was refused because 2 days expired. I WALKED from the Bank to the License bureau and renewed it (luckily only about 1000 yd) and returned to the Bank. The walk didn't hurt me but a citation for expiration might have.

Mine came due recently and I did it by mail because I had to turn in a doc's form for the handicapped hanger. Chose to use credit card. Best $0.92 service charge I ever spent.

Yesterday in the mail I got the plate sticker and the handicapped hanger, along with a form for each. Plate form goes in the car, handicapped hanger form goes in my wallet. That form is 8.5 inches by 4 inches. Got to wonder if those DMV folks actually live in the real world.

You got a late fee for 8 days late? LA is hard core!

Here in Colorado the internet side of the DMV seems to be quite efficient ...

I renewed my Drivers License three them was told 14-30 days to show up .. had it in 6

Some thing for my Jeep last time I did it online . was told 7-14 days .. had it in 3 .

Apparently DMV Hell does not extend to the internet side here.
