It's been all over the news, specifically about registration and licenses.
Wonder if they'll ever stop overcharging truck owner's as if we all use our pickups for commercial purposes?

Smog checks are every two years. We often have ours done on the road before we get the renewal in the mail. It can be done either 60 or 90 days ahead of the renewal date, don't remember which. That way the smog "tic mark" is already on the vehicle record at the DMV when we finally renew on line.

If your date is near, I would go ahead and get the smog check, if this is the year, as though you were anticipating the renewal in the mail, and head out on my trip.

Our solution was to leave the less than golden state about 6 years ago.

Our registration included an "out of state" affidavit to be filled out and submitted if you are going to be out of the Golden State when your smog test is due.

Yeah, why would you have to smog it if you're out polluting another state? Hahaha

What?

Two things,
1, if they don't send me a bill in the mail, they get no payment!

I realize this is not a smart way to look at it, but come on, they can't send a bill?

2, $222.00 for registration on a camper, REALLY??? that's highway robbery!! Pun intended, NJ is about as bad with taxes and fees but I paid a mere $23.00 fot registration, although it is a 1973.

good luck, fighting a broken system I think. MPJ

Good post Bob,

I always pay through the DMV online access. On my last billing I noticed they changed the format. It used to be the license number and a special access code. Once those are both entered it takes you to the payment page. Now.. they ask for the license number and the last five of the vin number. The problem is my Willys jeep only has a 7 digit vin number and the last five digits make no sense apparently to the DMV... so I waited til the last minute and found myself standing in line. Thats an experience for sure.

Vinnie
