Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, March 31, 2010 3B Departn00ent of Motor Vehi,:i es questions and answers GEORGE VALVERDE Director, CA Dept of Motor Vehicles Do you have questions about general driving related requirements like registra- tion and insurance? Are you unclear about laws and re- strictions related to driving? The California Department of Motor Vehicles has answers. Q: What fees are included in my registration payment? A: Your annual vehicle regis- tration payment consists of various fees that apply to your vehicle. Your annual re- newal notice and registration card itemize these fees. The following is a list of the various fees that may be in- cluded in your annual vehicle registration payment: Registration Fee Vehicle License Fee (This is the fee that may be an income tax deduction.) Weight Fee Smog Abatement Fee (This fee is charged to vehicles ex- empt from biennial smog in- spections.) Special Interest/Environ- mental Plate Fees County/District Fees Motorcycle Safety Fee (charged to motorcycles only) Owner Responsibility Fee Q: When choosing a configu- ration for a personalized plate online, the site asked me to explain the license plate meaning. Why is this? A: The department has the right to refuse any combina- tion of letters and/or letters and numbers that may carry connotations offensive to good taste and decency, or which would be misleading or in conflict with any license plate series now issued. Sub- stituting numbers for letters or vice versa may be confused with an existing plate and is not permitted. For more information, visit, click on More Online Services, followed by the tab labeled Order Special Interest and Personalized Plates. Q: Can I use my debit card to renew my driver license on- line? How can I find out how much I owe? A: If you receive a Renewal by Mail Renewal Notice, you may complete it by mail or the Internet. The fee for re- newing your driver license over the Internet is the amount on your renewal-by- mail notice. A debit card can be used only if it shows the symbol for one of the follow- ing credit cards: Visa, Master- card, American Express or Discover. You will not be asked for your PIN number, and this service is offered free of charge to California drivers. If you qualify and wish to re- new online, log on to, click on the On- line Driver License Renewal button and follow the posted instructions. Q: Am I required to report my vehicle's odometer reading to the DMV? A: While odometer mileage readings are encouraged for all motor vehicles, there are cases when they are mandato- ry and cases when they are not mandatory: Reporting the odometer mileage reading is mandatory if you initially register a mo- tor vehicle or transfer owner- ship, and the vehicle is less than 10 years old. Reporting the odometer mileage reading is encour- aged, but not mandatory if the vehicle is 10 years old or older; the vehicle is a commercial vehicle with unladen weight of more than 8,500 pounds (more than 16,000 pounds gross ve- hicle weight); the vehicle is sold directly by a manufac- turer to any agency of the United States; the vehicle is a new vehicle transferred prior to its first retail sale by a dealer. To report your odometer reading to the DMV, enter the mileage on the Certificate of Title in the section designated for the disclosure of odometer reading. If the title is held by a lien holder, you must use the Vehicle/Vessel Transfer Form kEG 262 form to report the odometer mileage reading. For more information on odometer readings, visit reg/odometer.htm. TO obtain the Transfer Form kEG 262, visit and click on Forms. Q: My niece told me about a Spanish DMV website. What can you tell me about it? A: Besides English, Spanish is one of the most widely used languages in Califor- nia. Because of this, the Cal- ifornia DMV has created, a site con- taining the same useful in- formation as its English counterpart, all for the con- venience of California's Spanish-speaking popula- tion. You can also reach this site by visiting and clicking on DMV en Espafiol on the top right-hand corner of the homepage. Q: I heard that there was an increase to my registration for my ATV. How much is the Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Fee increase? A: Effective Jan. 1, 2008, new legislation increased the off- highway vehicle registration fee from $25 to $50 every oth- er year. Both green and red sticker OHV registrations will be charged the in- creased fee. This fee increase is being used by the Off-Highway Mo- tor Vehicle Recreation Divi- sion headquarters of the De- partment of Parks and Recreation to support off- highway motor vehicle recreation in the State Ve- hicular Recreation Areas. The increase will also fund grants and cooperative agreements to federal, coun- ty and local OHV areas. Grants include operation and maintenance, restora- tion, safety and education, and law enforcement. For more information, log on to and click on the Off-Highway Vehicle Fee Increase tab on the homepage.
