Cali Street Legal CHP Certification
Posted August 23, 2001 - 06:38 AM
I'm going into the DMV in a week to get plates. I have a Canadian bike (with Baja kit), so the VIN is OK. My understanding is that I need a CHP officer to verify the bike is street legal before I go into the DMV scrounging for plates. My question is: How is this arranged and where can it be done? Do I make an apptmnt with CHP or some other bureau? Anyone who has experience in CA with this, please give me a heads up on how to do this. Thanks for the help...

I've had to take out of country bikes to the CHP to get a verification of vehicle but only for green sticker needs.
Show your bike to as few people as necessary and fill out as many forms as you can yourself or find someone who has done it before help you.

I did double register my bike for green sticked and street. I don't think it was worth it though and don't plan to renew green. My kit is small enough that I don't notice it and leave it on all the time anyway. Besides, I have full coverage insurance by street licensing so that I can shove it in a mine shaft if I really hurt it!
