yeah, i got in a fight with the guy at the dmv over it.
Last year my reg was $400, would have been two somethin w/o the massive weight fee

Ca also considers all pickups as commercial vehicles so they can charge more. jerks.

you CAN register your pick up as a non commercial vehicle BUT and that is a big but you can NOT and i mean NOT put anything and i mean anything in the bed! the PO of my truck did that and he had a bike in the bed and got a ticket for it and had to get it retaged......

I tried that, but the guy told me that there had to be a 'permanent' covering over the bed as in a camper shell that does not quick connect/release

They nail you on the weight fee, because they can't nail you for smog.

It's the GVWR where they get you...the tag on my 85 L-900 was $1200 a year its GVWR was 28500....

I got nailed by some level of ignorance on my Dog Van...B3500 it had noncomms on it...guess it had been an rv or something...that durned thing cost like 500 bucks..had to get it reweighed at a scale...a real mess....all because the van had lumber racks on it...well that's what the CHPatrol said.

Van now costs $280~ a year...and I get the added enjoyment of smog check 2 on a van with 230K+ miles.... this year 'round I non-opped it...shine them...when I have to I'll register....

Well, if you want lower taxes/fees whatever...vote conservative...like a Tom McClintock...that's the dude that wants to virtually eliminate car reg fees.

I'm going the Oregon route using my Dad's address ...I got 6 vehicles to keep on the road...and it seems I'm always paying the DumbMV for one that's due..

Yes, I'm a native California...but I'm a Goldwater Republican....where's Teddy Roosevelt when we need him...or if not him...the man on horseback....

dang man $12000 a year is out of site! if i had to smog and register my truck i would freak! although the guy i bought it form had the paper work to show that it passed smog every time the first time when it needed to back before it was exempt, so i bet it still would, no way in heck that i want to find out for sure tho!

I am also a native California (Great Grandparents are buried here in So Cal) and a Republican...but enough of the polictical stuff.

I was told the same thing about registaring my truck non commercial, I have a camper shell on it but went commercial anyways. It cost me $28.00 a year in Co. and $137.00 out here for a 77 F150.

Kalifornia sucks when it comes to registration fees. That is one of the reasons I can't wait to move out of this state. In Oregon you can register your vehicle for 1,2, or 4 years at a time. Maybe I should have my brother register mine up there using his address?
