I can't explain it, but I basically went straight from a Certificate of Origin (Also known as an MSO) that clearly stated "This vehicle is not street legal..blah blah..etc" to a street title, to a plate! Everyone told me I would have to installl all the street stuff (turn signals, brake light switched front and rear, horn, etc...) and get a special inspection. But I didn't do any of that. I couldn't be happier because I have been trying to get a plate since I bought the bike aboout two months ago. If any of you are looking for a plate in VA, there is hope. And don't work too hard transforming your bike into a completely street legal machine (Unless you want to, of course) before you try the simple route. See y'all in the mountains!
