I live in oregon, I bought a car in washington and lost the title. I do not have contact with the titled owner . What can i do to get the title, and what dmv should i go to.
He needs a trip permit and insurance.
Also, when he goes to the DOL to register, they'll give him new plates (not temporary ones).
fill out this form to find out the owners name and address
then send a letter explaining that you have lost the title and would they be willing to help you get a new title.
Ok, I have a few questions for this thread.
My Saab 900 is a 1987. It's now 2012. 2012 - 1987 = 25. I now qualify for collector car status, correct? Or is it "over" 25 years in the state of WA? Does it matter when it was built, or just the model year?
Second, the car is not currently registered. Someone told me before that the car had to be currently registered, then it could be "switched over" to collector status. Is this true? The whole reason that I want the collector status (besides not having to run a front plate) is that it doesn't pass emissions. (In its present state it actually doesn't even run, but we'll table that for the time being ) I'm sure you can see the catch-22 here.
To use collector plates, vehicles must be:
More than 30 years old.
Capable of operating on the highway.
Owned and operated as collector vehicles.
Collector vehicles may be driven:
To and from auto shows, circuses, parades, displays, special excursions, and antique car club meetings.
For testing purposes.
For the pleasure of others without compensation.
Collector vehicles may not be used for:
Commercial purposes or to carry a load.
Regular transportation in the manner of a fully licensed vehicle.
License plate requirements
Collector license plates:
May be assigned to currently registered passenger vehicles, motorcycles, or trucks.
Are good for the life of vehicle.
Aren’t required to display month/year tab.
Aren’t renewed annually.
Must be displayed on the rear of the vehicle. (You must provide your restored or current license plates. If you provide a set, the collector vehicle plates may be displayed on the front and rear of the vehicle).
A friend of mine moved down here from ak a few years ago and needs to renew his license now. His jetta is currently registered in am and if he transfers the title to down here it's going to cost him $600 is there any way he can transfer it to aw title without paying the $600 I realize this is kinda shistey but $600 is over half of what the car is worth haha.
If you are buying vehicles with the intent of selling them, they want you to have a dealers license regardless of number, but generally they say 6 in a 12 month period.
A passenger vehicles that has been registered in your name for more than 90 days in another state is exempt from sales/use tax and Tabs/Title on a passenger vehicle is about 95-105 plus RTA tax if you live within the RTA boundaries...
If you are active duty non resident military or student, you can license your vehicle in your home of record, but you are still subject to Washington sales/use tax if you are living in Washington.
If you are interested, the only thing I can think of to help is to send some support to the Senator and Representative that are sponsoring it. I did. Maybe it makes a difference...?
Go to the email link, Fill out your info, enter 1219 and click For.
perhaps I should have phrased it as: the taxpayers save 1.2 million
You are correct. This subject is absolutely not about saving taxpayers money, it is about securing triple digit incomes for a multitude of individuals to decide a $10M footbridge is a good idea..
Ok, no more politics. Just frustrated.
We now have a FACEBOOK page, if you have questions you can ask them there for quicker service!
