No Plates

Hey,
I got the 'maro in early Jan; DMV shows registration completed by 02/13,
so I assume the plates would have been sent out about then. It's 03/23
and I have no plates. How long do I wait until I contact DMV?

TIA!

were they going to you or the dealer?either way you should have them by now.if there is nothing wrong and they just haven't sent them out, the dealer can give you another temporary plate if yours is expiring.

It really doesn't matter until next Jan. As long as you have the sticker in the front window you will not be bothered.

I bought my car on the 26th. I went to pick up my custom plates and it turns out, my car isn't registered yet... I can't pick up my plates until it's registered and the federal plates come in... =/

I ordered custom plates a couple weeks ago. How long until they'll be ready for pick up? The DMV said 6 to 8 weeks but, should I believe 'em?

We ordered custom plates for my wife's Denali in January and we just got a notice about 2 weeks ago that they were in ... so about 8 weeks sounds right ....

The tricky part is getting an appointment at DMV to pick them up ... the notice they send you says you have 30 days to pick them up, but they can't give you an appointment for 45 days!

I ordered my personalized plates on 2/1, got the notice from the DMV on 3/24 and picked them up today. I had the same problem where the nearest appointment time was more than 30 days away. I decided to go to the DMV without an appointment and the wait wasn't that horrible. I went to the Laguna Hills branch at 4:30 PM and I walked out the door with my plates at 5:00 PM.

Good luck

I still haven't received my government plates so I'm rolling around with ahole in my bumper with a "Procharger, blown and intercooled" licenseplate frame on the back.

DMV seems to be way behind. I paid for the tags on one of motorcylces and took almost two months to get it. My registration on my Camaro expires at the end of this month ( yikes in 3 days) and I have not recieved my tags for it either. paid those over a month ago. Hope the cops plan on cutting me some slack it I get pulled over and don't have them yet.

My wife bought a Chevy Malibu in February and It took three month to the day to get her plates. We called the dealer and they said that DMV is really slow because of the furloughs.

Shhh don't say anything about the delay or how slow the CA DMV is. They'll just work slower to remove the furlough days!!!

I thought we made our prisoners make our license plates, not the DMV?

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...8120750AAp06VS

Or is that what the DMV has turned into... prison? (Felt like it when I spent 1/2 a day there picking up my plates)
