Your experiences with the DMV (YOM registration)
Well, visited DMV yesterday. 6th time for this YOM thing; Visit 1) Denied on the spot because my plates are 1963 plates not 1965 (meathead at the counter thought the "63" stamp meant just that). Visit 2) App processed..I brought in my plates bare...no stickers at all. Knucklehead at the counter wrote in that my sticker was yellow (?). Visit 3) Waited 2 months and visited to see what was up..turned back and told to call Sac. Visit 4) At another office I was gladly informed that the process was done and I was issued a set of stickers...for my old plates (?)
In between visits 4 and 5 I called Sac and was told that the transaction wasnt found. So...visit 5) Went back to original DMV office and they too had lost track of my paperwork and the transacation disappeared. Manager said that she would check with Sac herself and call me later. No call. Ever.
That very day I got a letter in the mail with my original app and little yellow sticky. "Denied" because wrong color sticker. And a refund check.
Visit 6) I acquired a 1965 sticker from Frank and returned to DMV. Clueless clerk took one (1) hour to do the paperwork...he was afraid of his own shadow and was extra cautious and asked his supervisor 20 questions. But all looked good and the app was processed. I made sure he wrote in the correct color sticker on the app in my presence.
I think that if this is denied again Im giving up. Too much time expended for my square,under-appreciated, non-collectable, not-a-Mustang old Mercury. :p
Thanks again Frank!!
