  • Is there an easy way to estimate registration penalties 4 years expired for CA regist

    Just seeing if I can get some easy information here for a bureaucratically complicated question:

    I am going to look at purchasing a used motorcycle this weekend.

    It’s a 1998 Ducati 916. It's yellow, and it's loud. It says to the police OVER HERE!!!!!! ME ME ME ME ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The registration is expired 4 years out.

    Does anyone know how can I estimate the penalties on getting it current? I'd like to have some Idea how much the DMV is going to rake me over the coals for.

    Thanks,

    I think the max penalty is 100% per year......so take whatever each years' reg costs, and then double it.

    The DMV website might have more info

      Thanks, found it. Very confusing, but it looks like I'm looking at 160%.

      (1) For a delinquency period of one year or less, the penalty is 40 percent of the fee.

      (2) For a delinquency period of more than one year to and including two years, the penalty is 80 percent of the fee.

          If a "Certificate of Non-Operation" is presented and attested to by signature, there may not be fees due for the time in question. You really should check with the DMV. Ask the previous owner if the vehicle was under operation at any time of the lapsed period. If not, have him sign all of the paperwork.

          Otherwise, it is a progressive amount starting with the first year of arrears and increases for each successive year.
          Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!

            Thanks, I'll have some time to pursue the best approach. I'm looking at it this weekend, but will pick up a few weeks later if I decide to get it.

            There are some pros and cons to it, a new looking Duc 916 for $3.5K being the pro, the con being the registration and having sat for 4 years with gas in the tank.

            I'm just trying to price out everything so I'm not broadsided.
