title reconstruction is expensive

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:

We include this document in the transfer package sent to the DMV.

Car Buyer Vehicle Delivery Request

When a selling dealer makes delivery of a SOLD vehicle to a buyer we prepare a written vehicle delivery request and we charge a fee of $ 100.

We offer a copy offer in our forms starter kit.

Scan or Copy the entire application package

We handle all transactions by mail to the DMV Service Center.

Make sure you copy or scan the complete transaction, including payment check in the event of document loss and the need for application reconstruction.

Title reconstruction can be timely and expensive.

We suggest Tanya Reeves for such complicated efforts

We include instructions for mailing corrections along with a copy of our current dealer license.

We include this document in the transfer package sent to the DMV.

Sales Tax Reporting

We prepare a DMV statement of facts REG256 with our dealer sellers account number.

We include this document in the transfer package sent to the DMV.

Remember sales tax is reported according to the buyers county of residence.

We print and file a sales tax rate chart in the deal jacket for the zip code rate on the sale date.

car dealer insurance agent convicted of fraud

Former agent who pocketed insurance premiums pleads guilty to fraud

 

Media Calls Only: 916-492-3566
Former agent who pocketed insurance premiums pleads guilty to fraud

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – Thomas Henry Morris, 72, pleaded guilty to one felony count of insurance fraud after he collected premiums and failed to pay over $133,000 in premiums to an insurer. Morris was sentenced to three years felony probation and 40 hours of community service. As part of his plea agreement, Morris paid $133,000 in restitution and will pay an additional $10,000 to the insurance company involved.

“This sentencing is a victory for consumers and insurers,” said Commissioner Dave Jones. “It was because of the combined efforts of the Department of Insurance and the Contra Costa County District Attorney that we were able to bring an end to the scheming and thieving of this individual and find justice for the aggrieved insurance company.”

Morris, who owns Morris & Associates Insurance Services Inc., carried out his scheme with a producer license that expired in 1994. He exposed auto dealerships to hundreds of thousands of dollars in potential liability by selling surety bonds, collecting the premium and pocketing the funds that belonged to the insurer.

The investigation began in September 2013 and revealed Morris was directly involved in conducting unlicensed insurance transactions. The criminal complaint was issued June 24, 2014 and Morris surrendered to the court the following day.

###
The California Department of Insurance, established in 1868, is the largest consumer protection agency in California, regulating the $123 billion insurance marketplace. In 2013 the California Department of Insurance received more than 170,000 calls from consumers and helped recover over $63 million in claims and premiums. Please visit the Department of Insurance web site at www.insurance.ca.gov. Non-media inquiries should be directed to the Consumer Hotline at 800.927.HELP or 213.897.8921.

can i own a dealership without insurance ???

DMV Car Dealer Insurance

All dealer license applicants must select the type of dealership and then carry appropriate insurance. Some dealers are under the mistaken notion that their car dealer surety bond acts as insurance. The car dealer surety bond does not provide dealer insurance coverage. If you are uninsured the surety bond is at risk with an unpaid claim and a court judgement.

If you are stopped by the CHP or local law enforcement driving an inventory vehicle with your dealer plate attached you will be asked to produce your car dealer insurance. If you do not have car dealer insurance the vehicle can be seized, impounded with DMV registration and sales tax then due. After you pay the tow and impound fees, the release, the sales tax and the registration you will have to appear at a DMV hearing to request that your dealer plate be returned to you.

Your car dealer insurance is comprised of three components:

Location Coverage

Inventory Coverage ( cost of vehicles up to stated amount )

Usage Coverage ( business and personal use )

The standard car dealer insurance policy is called garage keeper liability with a test drive endorsement..

Personal use of dealer plated inventory is not allowed for family members NOT listed on the ownership of the dealership.

Business use of the dealer plated inventory is allowed between 8am and 6pm for family members and licensed salespersons ONLY

Please contact our car dealer insurance agent jonathan von arx jr @ 562-795-6611 for a competitive quote.

Each dealer applicant must provide a valid car dealer surety bond.

The credit or collective credit of all owners will determine the bond cost.

Some applicants require a cash deposit and/or a co-signer.

LiveScan Fingerprint Clearance

Licensed Sales Persons must also submit a full set of fingerprints.

Anticipate 30-45 days for background clearance.

dmv red history stickers

AB1215 Signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown

Beginning July 1, 2012 all California auto dealers must run vehicle history reports

through the National Motor Vehicle Title Information Service (NMVTIS).

Compliance is not achieved with Carfax, AutoCheck or any other non-NMVTIS reports.

NMVTIS reports are available at:

  The purpose of the report is to identify vehicles with branded titles, such as salvage, lemon-law, flood, etc.

If a dealer chooses to sell a vehicle with a branded title,

he must affix a red warning sticker to the vehicle so a customer is aware of the branded title status.

On July 1, 2012 dealers may charge an additional $10 on the doc fee to offset the cost of the report.
