I always heard what a pain it was to get the “YOM” plate, but now I know….it’s all TRUE!! On February 25th when I went to the DMV and got the new registration and plates, I mentioned I’d like to have my year of manufacture plates put on the camper. The lady gave me a new form (imagine that!) to fill out and told me to take a picture of the plate and send it in with the form to an address she put at the bottom of the paper. On February 27th, I sent it all in and kept copies.
Fast forward to today and I still don’t have word on my request to use my vintage plates. So I called, and an hour later was told they don’t have my request! Two months waisted! So I went down to the Folsom DMV (again), and waited an hour (again), and was told I did it wrong (again!). I have to bring the plates in to the DMV office with the forms and more money! GRRRRR!
So a quick trip (HA!) to Nevada City to grab the old plates off the camper and off to the Roseville DMV (I was told it was less waiting there). And a chat with Eddie and yes, I let him touch the vintage plates and take more pictures of them and measure them and write all about them on the form…and another $45. And he told me, okay! Now we’ll see if downtown gets the request and I’ll have some sort of tracking record (and yes, I got copies)!
