Over a month ago, we received a notice in the mail (forwarded from our old address in CA) to renew my vehicle registration. I returned the notice along with a letter stating that we moved out of state and now the car is registered in Washington. So then a couple of weeks go by, and I get another notice (again forwarded from our old address), stating if I didn't provide proof of registration by the end of the month I would be facing legal action. So I called the DMV office and when I finally got through to the cheerful, customer service oriented DMV employee (yes, sarcasm) I explained that I had been relocated out of California and now live in the state of Washington and had sent a letter weeks ago informing the DMV of this move. She spouted off a list of more asinine steps that needed to be completed, so I asked her, "What's going to happen to me if I don't do these things?" She told me in her ever sweet demeanor that my car would be impounded. I told her that I'll take my chances. Then she barked, "It is AGAINST THE LAW to not have registration in the state of CA." I asked her what part of moving out of state does she and the DMV not understand!?!? I felt like I was talking to a styrofoam peanut so I hung up and a day or so later sent all the crap they wanted: proof of registration as well as insurance, along with our contact information and address and what did I just get in the mail???
ANOTHER vehicle registration notice from the state of California!!!
The best part about this is that the notice is addressed to our house here in Seattle. You'd think that would have tipped off SOMEONE over there, since the last time I checked, it is not mandatory to register your vehicle in the state of California if you live in the state of Washington.
Instead of going back and forth on this issue again, I think I'll just mail back a fecal sample and see what happens.
