Default out of state car registration

Sup peepz!

Hope all is well back in warm hawaii...

Anyway i'm in SJ now and i got mail from hawaii to register my car.

Not planning on moving back home anytime soon, but I'm still running my HI plates up here...I had to remove my 2 front window tints b/c seems cali law doesn't allow for that...To avoid any profiling of sorts I opted to remove my front tint...

I see a few cars here w/ out-of state plates and was wondering how much of an issues is it to do keep the car registered out of state?

Can CHP or any police officer impound the car?

What sucks is the registration fee for my car here is like a bit more than what I'd be paying for HI registration...

Thanks in advance and have a great weekend peepz!

from my understanding when i was going transfer schools in cali and thought about bringing my car up i read some of the laws and it was a long list of crap too!

pretty much if you work or go to school in the state of California and operate a vehicle you"NEED" to register with the DOT CALI and pay their fees. only way around it is if you supposedly are just in the state for Vacation but the CHP will take your plates down and enter it in a data base system so ive heard.

CHP arent people to mess with from what my family that live in cali. if your car stalls on the freeway they dont bother waiting for a tow truck, the use their patrol cars to push you off the road. seriously



Also when you register your vehicle in California your are asked to pay a Sales tax fee on your vehicle based on the cost you paid for the vehicle in another state. The way around that fee is to say you got it as a gift then taxes dont apply.


good luck! and happy Smog checking

you can keep your plates forever in cali, they never bothered me...
just gotta get a safety check, send it all into the hawaii dmv, and put the new reg sticker on the car.
with the car off the island... you'd need to find hookups.

and i know first hand with the car dying on the side of the freeway, and chp pushing my car off the damn road. punks.
