Unfortunately you can talk with five different people with the state around here and get five different answers. Required to accept something from another state? I will believe it when I see it and then it still doesn't mean I can go to this window on this day and deal with a different person and not have issues.

If it works for you that's great but I want to hear about someone in this state, hence the question.

Bull, they didn't try hard enough. I had to have them ask a superviosr at the window. There arent many titleless states left....you have to help them a bit.

Awesome thread, happy to see VT willing to take the funds and help people with legit bikes.

I'm curious to know how you guys think this would work out. I bought a basket case dirt bike that was last registered in here in California about 3 years ago. This thing changed hands several times and somewhere along the way the title was lost. Not only that, but there are back fees because nobody bothered to place it on non-op. Before I spend a bunch of money fixing it up, I'd like to know that I can register it and get a green sticker. So, if I were to register in VT and then back in CA, wouldn't they say "hey wait a second dude, we already have a bike with that VIN registered here; bring us the title and a check"..?

So this (sorta) happened to me about 5 years ago. I bought a bike in Washington State. Two years later, I moved to California, where the bike had originally come from. The previous owner had forgotten to tell DMV that he and the bike left the state about four years before. Oops.

It took the clerk about 25 seconds to clear the vehicle record and give me a plate. You might have a little more fun convincing them since VT doesn't title, but vehicles coming in from out of state are treated as if they're new--in addition to the previous owner's fees disappearing, the VLF basis resets based on what you paid for it (on a vehicle that's never left CA, the VLF is based on what it cost new even if it's had seven owners). The registration cycle resets as well, with the registration now expiring on the date you reported that you first operated it in CA or the date you're at the DMV, whichever's earlier. Even if you somehow had the old plate, you get a new one. Note, of course, that if the fees are in your name this will not work.

However.... Vermont only registers street legal bikes, so you can't do anything about a bike that's not street legal (i.e. green/red sticker). You'd have to find a state that registers but does not title off-road bikes and does not require you to be a resident to do so. A lot of states don't register off-road bikes at all, and not every state that registers them titles them.

Update: Got the plate in the mail and a temporary registration form. FYI the minimum tax amount is calculated at a $500 value no matter how little you paid. You can call Vermont DMV and they can look up the value for the tax amount. Only cost me $51 as it was under 50cc. Uncle is gonna send in for a couple bikes he has had for 20 years that he got from our cousin who has been dead for several years.
Did you ever title/tag this in FL?
I bought a $250 scooter there and it cost me almost $200 to get plates for it

Very interesting, and thanks a bunch for the reply. What I may try to do then, is send the paperwork to try and get a plate, then send a letter similar to the fellow with the Berg when they kick it back, then surrender the plates for a green sticker when I register in California...assuming I'm lucky enough to get that far. Or...just wait for a CA titled frame to pop up on fleabay and swap everything over.

Ummm,,, yeah right.

In our local DMV office the County Clerk is often at one of the windows. He is exceptional in that he is there to help people get things done and not make it tougher for them. Both of these bikes were run through him and after making some to calls to try to get it done (not just prove himself to be correct) it wasn't possible. Both bikes were originally off road only bikes made street legal and registered in VT. One has a title, the other a transferrable registration. Once the VIN were checked in the system to be off road,,,,, the DMV didn't care what paperwork they had.

My thoughts too. In MD I had the toughest time getting legit bikes plated. Always needed another new form or something. Ask for a Supervisor? Yeah, they will come over and tell you to fill out yet another form.

In WI registration is pretty easy. I don't miss MD for that.

Ok, now we're getting to the truth. You're comparing apples to orangutans. Not apples to apples. We're talking streetbikes here-not dirtbikes that in many states play by a different set of rules.

Maryland is definitely hit or miss depending on how knowledgeable the clerk, or even supervisor, is. If you hit a wall at one MVA just go to another. ;)

Any one with old Honda Ct70 s did you guys put the old engine cc or the one you guys upgraded to the 125cc? Right now trying to figure out if on my 50cc I need to put the old cc or put the new 125cc so that they don't think it's a moped? I'm trying to register as a motorcycle it's a 79 so the vin is only 7 digits and it's a Puch.. Tht nada doesn't give a value for.. So VT said to put 500 down on the price...

Just don't want them to try to say the cc is wrong or do you think they'll have no idea?
