Question about plates


Recommended Posts

If you could get it plated in CA you can most likely get it plated in OR. CA has to be one of the strictest states.

DMV will not issue registration for a vehicle when the application submitted includes an Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin (MCO) indicating the vehicle does not meet federal vehicle standards or was manufactured for off-road use. For more information about off-road vehicles, see ATVs.

DMV must be satisfied that the vehicle meets the U.S. Department of Transportation and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards before issuing registration.

There are several ways proof of compliance for an imported motorcycle/moped may be provided:

An MCO from one of the major manufacturers above which contains a statement that the vehicle was manufactured to meet U.S. federal safety and emission standards.

An Oregon licensed dealer may view the federal safety standards certification label and the EPA certification label affixed to the motorcycle/moped that they are selling. After viewing the certification labels, the dealer may complete a Dealer Certification of Compliance with Federal Emission and Safety Standards, Form 7290, for submission with the application for title and registration.

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection Form CF7501 or CBP7501, Entry Summary that contains:

A vehicle description that includes the year model, make and vehicle identification number, and

An approval stamp or signature of an authorized U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent.

An original letter from the manufacturer or authorized U.S. distributor that clearly identifies the vehicle (including the VIN) and states that the vehicle was manufactured to meet federal safety and emission standards.

An original letter from the manufacturer or U.S. distributor that clearly identifies the vehicle (including the VIN) and states that the vehicle meets EPA standards and can be modified to meet federal safety standards. The letter must be accompanied with a certification that the vehicle has been modified and complies with federal vehicle standards. The customer may complete a Certification of Compliance with Federal Emission and Safety Standards, Form 7286, for this purpose.

For vehicles imported by the U.S. military or U.S. military personnel, a written notice or form issued by the U.S. military that states the vehicle complies with federal vehicle standards.

A DMV representative may view the federal safety and EPA lables affixed to the vehicle if none of the proofs listed above are available.

Doubtful. They are really cracking down. If you do get one you will loose it some day soon I believe. I know a couple people in Oregon now that have got the notice there plate is no longer good in the last few months. Writing is on the wall, you want a plate get a bike that came with one or fear loosing it. Does not matter much that it has a plate but might help. When they run the VIN you might have an issue.
