Default Revised Process for California SB100 Registration

I started the SB100 registration process yesterday for my new ERA.

According to my local DMV (Pleasanton), here is the revised process for registering a kit car (SPCNS) to get an SB100 registration:

1. Take in receipts and MSO and pay the fees. The expenses must include parts and labor to build the car, and receipts for the frame, body, engine, and transmission at a minimum. At this first visit I received a temporary VIN and a vehicle moving permit, which allows me to legally drive the car for one day for a Brake and Lamp inspection and a CHP inspection.

2. Brake and Lamp inspection is required before the DMV will issue a Temporary Operating Permit (this is a change from what I've seen elsewhere) or Sacramento will issue an SPCNS sequence number (also different). At this point I was starting to get concerned based on everything I read "DON'T LEAVE WITHOUT A SEQUENCE NUMBER!" After speaking with the manager, showing her the instructions I'd downloaded from DMV and elsewhere, she called Sacramento and confirmed they will not issue an SPCNS without a Brake and Lamp inspection. By the way, I was actually pretty impressed with the Pleasanton DMV employees. While it was clear they didn't have a lot of experience with the process, they were professional and helpful. It sure would be nice, however, if there was a clear process to follow since what I found posted on line is out of date.

At this point a guy called me over and encouraged me to relax. He was in the final stages of getting an SB100 for his Noble. He assured me that the DMV folks knew the system and were helping me out, even though it's different than what I'd read. He went through the whole process a few weeks ago and was equally concerned at the time, but confirmed that this DMV knew what they were doing and to be nice and follow their instructions. Wish I'd thought to get his contact information!

3. CHP inspection for stolen parts and permanent VIN assignment.

Not totally sure on the rest of the process, but I believe it is:

4. SB100 Sequence number (yeah, this means another DMV appointment I think, although I may try to do it by phone first)

5. BAR inspection and smog waiver.

6. Sacramento issues the license plates and I think I have to go back to the BAR and have them attach the SB100 sticker.

This is the same process I went through a little over a year ago when registering my ERA. The only difference was that they originally said I didn't need brake and light and sent me direct to CHP. This may be because my car was already titled in MA. When I went back to DMV for the next step, I then had a delay due to the missing brake and light. Otherwise, I followed the path you refer to above and all worked out well!

Thanks for posting and sharing your experience. Unfortunately, it all seems to change day to day and DMV window to DMV window. For my used Cobra about 3 years ago, they said I didn't need a B&L inspection, then later said I did need it, but then a supervisor overruled and confirmed I didn't need it after all. It makes sense they'd want a newly constructed vehicle to have that inspection before issuing an operating permit of any kind. Please update as you proceed. And good luck!

Thanks for the primer, Evan.

My experience at the Los Gatos DMV was pretty similar; a few differences:

- they went ahead and called Sacramento for a sequence number, and received one even though I haven't done brake & light or CHP yet.

- they issued me 3 moving permits - one for brake & light, one for CHP, and one for my own purposes. These have a 60-day expiration, so I'd better get going and finish the car. I may use the third moving permit to get the car aligned so I feel better driving it around to do the other stuff on my new Avons.

Some other observations:

- my DMV person didn't want to see the engine and transmission receipts at all - she said the CHP will be more interested in those when they check for stolen parts.

- my DMV person didn't check or keep any of the materials used to substantiate the total declared amount subject to use tax. I was extremely thorough and honest with these, but there was no real check of my total.

- I brought both originals and copies of everything. The "appointment triage" person when I arrived was pretty hardnosed and told me that I'd have to surrender all my original documents, and that photocopies were good for nothing. But as it turned out, I walked out with every scrap of paper I walked in with (except a big check). All records of my SPCNS process were directly entered into the computer. After talking to the first lady, I expected they were going to send a big dossier of original papers off to Sacramento and I'd never see it again.

Bill,
That's good to know. I will need to get my moving permit renewed (or another issued) as the 60 days lapsed. With a little luck my car will be here next weekend and I can get the brake and light inspection out of the way, then onto CHP and the BAR referee.
