I went down to the DMV and had to fill out a MV-82. I believe I checked " Renew a registration In section "2" . At first they wanted me to turn in my old plate but after they asked for insurance and I responded that there is none for a class "C" she spoke to a manager it turned out they didn't need me to turn in the old plate.
they gave me a new plate a registration sticker and a registration document for $18.50 which is, I think a quarter cheaper then the 2 years registration missed and the current year registration combined.
What I dont understand is the need to give me new plates, they had all my information on the computer they even gave me my vin and weight of my moped to help me fill out the MV-82. Why is all lost if we dont maintain a registration on a yearly basis? I suppose its bureaucratic protocol.
