DMV License Ownership Regulations

When a dealership is created, all owners with a 10% ownership interest must take the DMV class.

The owners spouse must also take the class to be a listed owner of the dealership.

Dealer plate privileges for 24/7 personal use are only extended to listed owners.

There are four choices to hold dealer ownership:

Sole Proprietor

Partnership

Corporation

Limited Liability Company ( LLC )

The tax considerations of your choice of ownership should always be considered. You have one year from the course date to make this decision when you submit your completed car dealer application to your DMV inspector. All owners regardless of dealership structure must take the class.

Ex-Fresno police officer arrested in auto theft case

The Fresno Bee

An ex-Fresno police officer has been arrested in connection with an auto-theft case, according to Fresno County Jail records. Jail records show Alfred “Al” Campos, 39, was arrested by Fresno police and released on bond late Tuesday night. The jail log lists the charge as possession of a stolen vehicle. The Fresno Police Department’s Career Criminal Auto Theft Team began investigating Campos last year after he took a 2011 Chevrolet pickup to Michael’s Cadillac on North Blackstone Avenue for service, according to Fresno County Superior Court records. After a mechanic discovered that the pickup’s vehicle identification number didn’t match automotive records, he contacted police. Detectives determined the VIN had been tampered or altered. A detective also found another VIN on the pickup that was for a 2008 Chevrolet pickup reported stolen from a dealership in Fairfax, Va., on Oct. 23, 2013, the court documents stated. The stolen truck “then somehow was registered in California under Suspect Campos’ name as a 2011 Chevy pickup truck, “ Fresno police detective Cary Phelps wrote in an affidavit in support of a search warrant. Detectives used the warrant last year to search Campos’ home on Clinton Avenue and his business, A&A Auto Service, on North Blackstone near Ashlan Avenue.

Lt. Joe Gomez said Campos was terminated from the Fresno Police Department on Jan. 12, 2014

odometer fraud can be a costly mistake for the craigslist car buyer

Odometer Fraud: Used Cars Lying About Their Age

It's estimated that 1 in 10 cars will have their odometer tampered with.  Look for clues both in and around the gauges, as well as along the whole car to help you determine if fraud is afoot.

It stands to reason that you’ve heard the phrase “time is money” — after all, it’s been around for over two and a half centuries.

Coined by Mr. Benjamin Franklin in 1748 as a warning to idle people, it would thrill him to know its became the motto of hustler and two-timer alike. In any circumstance, Franklin’s wisdom is inescapably true — even one he couldn’t have foreseen: the used car market.

Fitting that the coiner of the phrase, "time is money" should be the face on the $100 bill.
Fitting that the coiner of the phrase, “time is money” should be the face on the $100 bill.

Like a creeper on a dance club floor, the quickest way for a car to find somebody to go home with is to lie about its age.

Odometers have been keeping track of miles far longer than cars have been covering them (Franklin himself invented one of his own to measure the distance traveled by postal carriers for finding cost effective routes — they weren’t going to put someone who didn’t care about money on the $100 bill).

Where their accuracy helped Mr. Franklin, their inaccuracies help unscrupulous car sellers make undeserved money off of you.

Clocking” and “Spinning:

Tampering with a car’s odometer became known as “clocking” and “spinning” the dials back when they were actually dials — a ring and pinion reduction that spun the six tumblers with numbers on them.

That mechanism in the dash is connected to the drivetrain by a tightly wound, flexible cable that is engaged to measure when the car’s transmission is in-gear. Only the tumblers in the dash need be tampered with to shave a few hundred or thousands of miles off a car.

“We estimate 1 in 10 cars have their odometer rolled back,” said Jack Gillis, public affairs director for the Consumer Federation of America and the author of “The Car Book”.

The process of fiddling with analog odometers can leave behind clues that, with a keen eye, you can spot (and dodge the bullet heading for your wallet — and safety).

CarFax, makers of vehicle history-reports, recommends that you pay attention to details in and around the dash and driver’s seat for signs of a car trying to pass for “newer” than it actually is.

  • Finger prints in the inside of a gauge cluster’s clear plastic means someone’s sticky fingers were where they shouldn’t have been
  • Extra-worn gas/brake/clutch pedals, shift knobs, and steering wheels on “low mileage” cars shouldn’t be — unless the owner has a handshake grittier than sandpaper
  • Be suspicious of trim-damage (marred or warped plastics) and loose screws near the gauge cluster

CarFax recommends paying attention to analog odometers with tumblers that have gaps between them, aren’t aligned as straight as you’d expector (and this should definitely indicate something) ‘jiggle’ when you strike the dash.

The tumblers should move smoothly, without intermittent changes in the action.

Keep a close-eye on the 10,000-digit tumbler, there’s money to be had in cars that are below the five-and-six-digit mileage marks. These will be the ones likeliest to be adjusted

TIPa car with less than 10,000 miles should still be on its original tires; their make can be obtained from a brand dealer.

This shift knob has visible wear on its surface.  It's from a 13-year-old car, with nearly 133,000 miles.  Check "high-touch" surfaces that will see more wear to determine a car's age and road use for yourself.

CarFax also recommends checking mileage against service-stickers, like oil changes. These are located in the door sills and window/windshield corners.

Truthfully though, anyone who didn’t think to change these to help sell their story wasn’t trying very hard — you should look deeper, suspicious or not.

Records, Records, Records:

Every time a car changes hands and is registered to a new owner, an account of its current mileage is taken and stored with the vehicles government records.

Services like CarFax provide records of this information (along with a car’s history of reported accidents and repairs — even if the car was somewhere classified a disaster area).

Utilizing this tool instead of simply going by the title of the current owner can help you spot a mileage discrepancy that they had no ability to hide.

When looking at the title your prospective car seller has – check:

  • the dates of their ownership-title against your vehicle report (reports take their data from DMV records)
  • the mileage on their documentation for fading or anything “conveniently” making it hard to read

A full history report costs a fee, but CarFax offers free odometer-checks of charge on their website (you just need the car’s Vehicle Identification Number, located at the bottom of the driver’s-side windshield and door-sill sticker).

TIPEven this kind of meticulous record-diving is no substitution for a good vehicle inspection by a mechanic of your choosing. Opt for one when possible.

Digital Odomoters, Faithful Guard or Fraud-Assiting:

The digital odometer, operating from the car’s on board Electronic Control Unit/Module, was developed for stopping analog-tampering. Unfortunately, criminals can be ingenious and quickly adapt.

People familiar with the old style of “clocking” were foiled, but a more tech-savvy auto hustler emerged (with worryingly easy-to-find tools).

Engineers designed back doors into car’s digital systems for correcting anomalies (like mismatched odometers from replacing a car’s instruments).

There exists both software and hardware to ‘correct’ odometers, but they can also input whatever road-age you’d like. Not even reserved for the truly committed and well financed crook, some examples are relatively inexpensive.

Any vehicle claiming to be under 10,000 miles should still have its original factory tires.  If you're unsure of what model these should be, contact a local dealer of the car brand.

That’s a helluva lot of access (and felony potential) for your two Benjamin bills.

It is a felony, thanks to the Federal Truth in Mileage Act (TIMA), to tamper with any car’s odometer.

It is a costly form of fraud to potential consumers.

Without an accurate account of a car’s mileage — critical, mileage-based maintenance goes unperformed (becoming even costlier repairs).

There is no shortage of digital odometer tools for shady car sellers to obtain.

When checking a car:

Look over the cabin (especially the driver’s area)

Check the gauge cluster for the signs (especially loose tumblers on analogue odometers)

Check external components like brakes, the trunk (lift back the carpet), and a car’s fluids beneath the hood (low mileage should have fresh-looking fluids)

You can check my in-depth Hub for used-car buying here.

Your obsessiveness and attention to detail can spare you money and headache alike.

An engine with over 220,000 miles undergoing extensive servicing.  Important maintenance is often mileage-based and difficult to stick to with inaccurate, tampered odometers.

we suggest new license plates on every sale

License Plates

We remove and destroy all plates from every vehicle we sell. We used DMV form REG156 to certify destruction and request new plates for the buyer. The registration cycle for the vehicle remains the same. We charge the buyer $ 19. for new license plates. This practice is required if the front plate is missing but also prevents tickets from being sent to donors / previous owners.

We install dealer flashers and frames to the front and rear of each vehicle pending the delivery of new plates by the DMV.

To order license plate inserts, known as flashers as well as license plates frames and ROS holders for the selling dealer contact Jody Forster:

car dealers…..beware of the kleenex

KIRKLAND, WA,  — For decades, one company has dominated the vehicle history market: CARFAX. With few alternatives available for vehicle history reports, CARFAX gets away with charging as much as $34.99 for a single vehicle history report.

“I just needed to prove that a car I was selling had a clean history, so I scoured the web for a ‘free vehicle history report'”, explains David Wu, “Unfortunately, there was no such thing as free vehicle history, and I felt ripped off when I resorted to paying $30 for a basic report.” After this experience, Wu went on to found VinAudit.com– a vehicle history reporting service offering a radically lower-cost alternative to CARFAX.

Since VinAudit.com’s initial release in early 2012, the service has served thousands of consumers over the Internet in addition to having with a rapidly growing presence in the automotive industry. VinAudit.com and partners of VinAudit.com served as one of the main alternatives to CARFAX providing an approved compliance solution with this new requirement that took effect on July 1st, 2012.

Assembly Bill 1215 required California car dealers to properly disclose vehicle history information before their customers purchase a car. Seeking a low-cost compliance solution, over 500 used car dealers in California have chosen VinAudit.com as their exclusive source for vehicle history reports.

“We’re just getting started,” Wu says optimistically, “One day, vehicle history may even become free.”

VinAudit.com is an approved provider and partner of NMVTIS, a US federal database wherein state DMVs, insurance carriers, junk and salvage sites with other record providers are mandated to report to. The company provides instant Vehicle History Reports that is sent to your email, can be downloaded as PDF file and can be printed. Moreover, they also offer Dealers Program and Resellers Program to the Automotive Industry with great benefits and simple set up. VinAudit.com’s mission is to make Vehicle History for free!
