    Im just wondering how Im supposed to register my once street legal car that is no longer street legal.

    Is it just Planned Non Operation? What do most people do?

    I believe to do this you must go to the TRANSVESTITE REGISTRATION office.

    Ok now seriously-----If it isn't "street legal" then ipso facto you can't register it---IMO.

    However-----don't tell them at the tag agency that you "RIPPED THE CATALYTIC CONVERTS RIGHT out of that bastard"

    To register the car you probably need to show proof of insurance----show that with a old or rather older registration, and will get that which you seek.

    PS---I really have no idea what I am talking about

    Probably very different from state to state (and provinces) but here in Manitoba we have "lay up" insurance which covers for fire, theft and vandalism. AFAIK they'll insure pretty much anything with a VIN. I'd suggest you contact your insurance company to see what they offer.

    My ITC car is registered and insured because I occasionally need to drive it 30 feet from the trailer to the driveway. I really don't want the sheriff to wander by when I'm doing it and start asking questions.

    It also gives me the option to drive it locally to an autocross.

    The nice thing about Ohio is that you can register anything. They never even need to see the car, it just needs to be insured if it is registered.

    In California (assuming "OC" is "Orange County"), you would PNO the car. For those outta state, a "PNO" means that the car is legal as far as registration (i.e. if you sell the car, the next owner will NOT owe back registration fees) but NOT legal to drive on public roads. It is a relatively small fee per year (I think about $10?).

    Also in CA: I actually had a silly phone conversation with a DMV employee which went something like this:

    ME: "I have a dedicated race car which is not street legal and will never be driven on the streets, always transported on a trailer... is Planned Non-Operation (PNO) the right way to register it?"

    DMV: "If the car will EVER be on a public road, it needs to be smogged and registered with up-to-date tags. Being transported on a public road on a trailer is considered being on a public road and the vehicle needs to be smogged."

    It makes no sense... according to hat employee, every time I trailer my PNO car (with very expired tags) to-from events, I'm risking a ticket. While trailering (open trailer), I've been followed by and even been given thumbs up from police with no issues. If I ever did get a silly ticket for trailering a PNO car, I plan to just take it to court... I hope that day never comes! [8-)]

    I believe the key is "on the road" (not over the road) If it is operated and it's tires are touching the road, then....

    I live in California and have an IT car that I have a (OHV) Off-Higway Registration for. This costs me $25 dollars every two years. This vehicle will never be street driven again, however I wanted to have a registration for it , if for some reason the "Officer" asked for the paperwork for the car on the trailer.

    Hey Todd, is that you?

    When I put my WRX on the trailer, I just put it on PNO and that was that. When I bought Curt's Civic I had issues with DMV, after 2 trips and 2 hours waiting, I finally was able to transfer the title to my name and put the car on Non-Op status. Now it could be registered in the future if I can smog it first.

    If you want more details, come by at one of the events.

    Yea, I ended up just registering it PNO to avoid DMV issues in the future. I will probably be hitting you up soon with some trailer questions though.
