Questions about scooter registration.

Postby Drewski93 » Sat Feb 11, 2012 2:46 am

I live in California my parents bought me a scooter for me they live in Pennsylvania.The scooter is being shipped here to my place but they mistakenly put the title and bill of sale in there name not mine.What troubles may I face in the days ahead with a registration of the vehicle.
Will they have to transfer the title of the vehicle to my name if so how?
And what am I looking at for the registration fee here in California.

This is a forum for moped and scooter enthusiasts, not experts on California registration requirements. I did a quick Google search on "California Scooter Registration" and all sorts of helpful stuff came up. I think you'd get much more useful information by looking there.

If you have questions about how to use or repair the scooter, c'mon back!

you will need mc endorsement for any sized 2 wheel motorized
vehicle in Ca. that might mean taking a class

makes no difference who owns it you can be the one its registered to
they can be the registered owner.

the scooter may not be able to be registered in Ca as they
have the strictest emissions regs,
only about 3 or 4 scooters have C.A.R.B. ratings since 2006
that means they can be sold in Ca. ..

before they ship it to you you should find out what scooter and model
it is...
