Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2010 5B Ownership ASK GEORGE 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. Save time by going online at Q: I always use my un- cle's Disabled Person Parking Placard. I know I'm not supposed to, but what's the big deal if he lets me have it? A: The big deal is that local law enforcement has the pri- mary authority to enforce parking placard or disabled person license plate misuse. Placard abuse can result in the cancellation and revoca- tion of the placard and loss of the privileges it provides. For you, the worst part may be that you can receive a mini- / of a placard, of a vehicle, of a license mum fine of $250, a maxi- , mum fine of $3,500, up to six months of imprisonment or both. But you should also consid- er the hardship you are caus- ing others who really need the parking space you are us- ing. Also, please let your uncle know that it is illegal to lend his placard to anyone. For more information on disabled person parking plac- ards go to and click on Publications, Vehi- cle Registration Brochures, Disabled Person Parking Placard or Plates or just click on fast facts/ffvrO7,htm. have the Ownership Certifi- cate or are not the registered owner of the vehicle. If you purchase a vehicle and the seller cannot provide releases from the registered or legal owners of record, yo u will need to locate them your- self to obtain releases. This can be very difficult, espe- cially with finance compa- nies that have been sold or no longer exist. Because privacy concerns prevent you from easily ob- taining vehicle history infor- mation from DMV, you may want to even request that the seller meet you at a Depart- ment of Motor Vehicles' field office to transfer the vehicle into your name and complete the purchase. Q: I've lost my Instruc- tion Permit and I'm over 21. Do I still need it to take my driving test? A: Yes. Regardless of age, a person must have a driver li- cense or instruction permit of the appropriate class to drive a motor vehicle. The de- partment will require that you have the permit in your possession during the drive test. You can apply for a du- plicate by visiting your local DMV office and completing Q: I'm in the process of purchasing a used vehicle and I want to ensure that the seller is the legal own- er of the vehicle. I'm hav- ing trouble finding this in- formation. Does the DMV have any tools I can use to help in my search? A: The most effective way to determine the seller is the owner of record is to review the Ownership Certificate, and to be very careful about purchasing a vehicle from a private party if they do not another Driver License and/or Identification Card application (DL 44) form. To learn more about driver li- cense requirements, please Visit, and click on the Driver License tab. Q: Half of my Clean Air Vehicle Sticker has been scraped'off. Is it possible for me to get another one and what is the fastest way? A: Yes. If the original Clean Air Vehicle Sticker you received has been scraped off by regular wear and tear or any other reason you can log on to the DMV's website by going to to fill out an Application for a replacement Clean Air Vehi- cle Sticker (REG 1000). Check the "replacement sticker" box and the appro- priate box that best describes the reason a replacement sticker is needed, as stated below: Checking the "Stolen" box will require a police report with the application. Checking the "Lost, Not Re- ceived, Damaged, Destroyed" box will require a completed and signed Statement of Facts (REG 256), giving the detail in Section G, with the application. Check the "Other" box for reasons other than those list: ed above and provide an ex- planation. Submit the completed form with the required Clean Air Sticker replacement fee, with the remaining parts of the damaged sticker - to the ad- dress on the form. Q: I was recently cited for Driving Under the In: fluence (DUI), but prior to this, I've had a clean record since I started dri- ving. How will this affect my good driver discount from my insurance comPa- ny? Will I have to walt the entire.10 years to get qne again? ! A: It is likely that you vill not be able to receive a good driver discount until the 10 years have passed, even though you've had a good record previously. It will be up to your insur- ance company to correctly apply the Insurance Code and make decisions regarding your policy based on the specifics of your driving record. Check with your in- surance company representa- tive if you need more details about its good driver dis- count. For more questions and answers about the DUI Reportabflity Requirement go to reportability.htm. Q: Do I need to get a reg- ular driver license first if I want to get a motorcycle driver license? A: No, you do not need a class C driver license, which is order to drive your average vehicle. A mo- torcycle requires an M1 or M2 license, but you will still need to follow very similar steps in Order to get your mo- torcycle driver license. If you are under 18 years of age you still need to have your permit for six months, provide proof of driver edu- cation/driver training and provide a completion certifi- cate of motorcycle rider training course. If you are 18 years or older, you will need to complete a Driver License or 'Identifica- tion Card Application form, pay the application fee, pass a vision exam, study and pass the written test and complete the motorcycle rider training course or schedule an ap- pointment at DMV to take the motorcycle driving test.
