Is it illegal to register or insure a car that originally had an airbag but does not have one anymore if you do not want to repair it?
Probably. Remember, there are still plenty of cars on the road that don't have airbags. And, of course, you can switch airbags off on a lot of cars these days.
You don't mention it, but often when the airbags in a car go off, the car might be considered a total loss. If that's the case, you might have difficulties in getting insurance back on the car if you're not planning on repairing the vehicle. You might also have issues with the state, which could require you to make the vehicle road-worthy prior to registering or paying for your yearly tags. This could require some repairs, and the state inspector might not "pass" the vehicle if the airbags don't work.
Sounds like you've got a lot of footwork to do, but start with your DMV first and go from there.

Answer . \nABSOLUTLY NOT, UNLESS YOU ARE STORING IT BUT NOT FOR DRIVING PURPOSES
no. . No. It is legal in all 50 states (in America) for you to disable the airbag on your own.. no its not . No, its not illegal. It is perfectly legal for you to disa…ble your own air bag as well.
If you are trying to save money by insuring in a cheaper state, than the answer is no. That would be insurance fraud. Some states like NY mandate that every vehicle registered… in the state carry insurance from a NYS Licensed Insurance Company, and with certain policy limits. There are certain instances like members of the military and college students that are permitted by law to be in another state without becoming a resident and getting their tags and insurance there. Even in NY people try to cheat the system by getting an upstate NY address where the insurance is cheaper. If you are ever in an accident, and the insurance company, police, anyone figures this out, they will simply not pay out on the policy. . That could vary from state to state, but it is always best to register and insure a vehicle in the state where you live. I thought about that when I moved from Indiana, which had much, much lower premiums, to Kentucky. In my case, the vehicle had to be insured in the state in which I live or I would risk it not paying if I had an accident. I believe individual states have requirements that vehicles be registered in the state within a certain amount of time after becoming a resident, too. If the purpose of the question is to find a way to save money on insurance, registration, or any other required expense, between the insurance companies and government rules and regulations, they have it tied up tight so they get you coming and going. Please see the discussion board for another bit of somewhat related information.
Answer . Registration and insurance in any state will allow you to operate the vehicle in every state, but if you are actually living in another state, you must get insura…nce, registration, and a driver's license in your state of residence. The only exception I know of is that a member of the armed services may keep all of these from his state of "permanent residence" while stationed in another.
Actually, it's quite the opposite - You must have insurance prior to registering a car. That's the law!!
No. In the states that require auto insurance, proof of insurance must be provided when you register the car. Some state insurers report insurance electronically to the DMV. M…ost states require proof of insurance at the time you register your vehicle in the form of an insurance card or endorsement form from your insurer. However, states have different requirements both for proof of insurance and also for liability limits. Your insurance liability limits may not allow you to drive legally in every other state. As of June, 2010, New Hampshire and Virginia are the only states that don't have mandatory insurance laws. Virginia requires the uninsured motorist to pay a $500 fee at the time of registration and at every renewal date. If you get hit by a driver in those states you or your insurance company must pay for your damages and sue the uninsured driver.
Just the opposite. You have to have your car insured to get your registration. Find a local insurance agent in your area to give your their best price, choose the coverage you… feel comfortable with, and pay for the insurance. You will receive a Binder and temporary Insurance ID cards. Take these with you to get your registration and tag for your new car!
no, they MUST be under the SAME name! srry!
If you drive it on the street or park it on the street, yes. I has to be registered.
Yes, if you do not tell the prospective buyer that the air bags do not work. I would never ever sell a car with faulty air bags even if I did tell the buyer. Too much chance o…f getting sued if they have a wreck later on and someone gets seriously injured. The buyer of the car may not sue you but a passenger could. My advice is do not do it and take that chance. You could loose thousands of dollars. Just not worth the risk. Fix the air bags and then sell the car.
Generally not. Virtually all states have "financial responsibility laws" that require certain levels and types of insurance to register a car or truck. In all cases, the insur…er must be authorized to transact insurance in the State.
Yes, it is very common, Whenever you move from one state to another you will need to pick up a new insurance policy unless your Insurance Company is a national insurer and the…n you can register your vehicle in your new state of residence.
You CAN register a car owned by someone else in some states, but doing so can lead to many problems if the driver gets into trouble and you are registered to the car. Insur…ing a car you do not own can also lead to problems but many more people do it. (e.g., if your dad is lending you his car and he says that you have to insure it.)
No. You can only insure a vehicle that you own. The only situation where this is different is a married couple.
You can find information about cash register car insurance at Auto Insurance Quotes, Auto Insure, Direct General, Manta, Insurance Lower and Cash Register Insurance.
No. Unless they are members of the same immediate family who live in the same household. Anything else is against the terms of your policy which is a legally binding contract.… Be very careful with this. If you insure a friends car on your auto policy and they have an accident, your insurance company cannot pay you for the damages because you don't own the vehicle, and they can't pay your friend because they don't have a contract with the insurance company. Not only will no one be paid for the claim, but you have also committed insurance fraud based on "material misrepresentation". Say your friend hit another person. The insurance company cannot pay that person either. You will be sued by that person and your friend. As for your friend, you technically sold them insurance without a license nor a contract to sell insurance with the company. Your friend and you will be sued and the company will also not pay for your legal defense. You will be screwed all the way around just because you wanted to save money and screw the insurance company out of premiums.
