Gpysy, they have about a year to come get it. LOL Most wait until you are 90 days late to give you a chance to come up with MONEY and keep the car.

In Mississippi the plates remain with the car. You need to call the bank. They will give them to you most likely. File a stolen report and sue the lender in court.They do not have a right to your plates nor your personal propery.SUE THE BANK/LENDER NOT THE REPO MORON !!! You should Report The Plates Stolen and if someone gets cought with them That will be on the bank or the person that lent them out In Georgia the plates are to be returned to the debtor. they dont stay with the car anymore

Electrolyte plates in a grounding system are electrically grounded metal plates on which a person stands to discharge static electricity picked up by his body. This is called grounding.

If you have plates on it, and you intend to keep those plates, then yes.

No. You can not drive it off the lot on to the street without insurance. If you already have insurance you have 10 days to contact your insurance company or your new car will not be covered. As for plates, you are at the mercy of the State. Assuming the dealer paid the fees in due time

First, your policy will be cancelled. Then, depending on what state you live in, the insurance company reports the cancellation to your Motor Vehicles department. Depending on how efficient they are, either your drivers license or car registration (or both) can be revoked. In some states, law enforcement will come to your residence and remove the plates from the vehicle. If you have a lien on the vehicle, you're still paying on it, your lender may impose their own insurance on the vehicle. This is expensive, and does nothing to protect you. It only protects the bank in the event the car gets totaled. In many states, lender-imposed insurance does not meet state standards, so you still get revoked, and still have to pay for the car and the lender-imposed insurance. Then you have to pay the state to get your license/tags back, plus a penalty. You have to pay a large down payment to re-establish normal insurance. In some states, you may be forced to get SR22 insurance, which is up to three time as expensive, before you can get your license back. It's easier and cheaper by far to pay the car insurance bill on time.

They can turn them in to the DMV, but do you want to take a chance on them doing that? Remember, the plates are yours and registered to you. If someone gets the plates and throws them on another vehcle and gets in an accident, say a hit and run and someone writes down the tag #, expect the police to come knocking on your door. To avoid a hassle, remove the plates from the vehicle. You have the right to since they belong to you, not the lender. If the car was taken before you could remove the plates, you have to get them back from the tow company. If your there when they are taking the car, the tow guy has to let you remove the plates. The plates do not stay with the vehicle and the tow co nor the lender has a right to keep them.

If you already have insurance and trade in your car you have 10 days to notify your insurance company or your new car will not be covered.

if you do not own a car you do not have to have insurance the insurance is tied to the registration when you register plates for a car and that is how the state keep track of you for insurance purposes I live in Ohio

Depends on the state. Generally if a state has compulsory auto insurance, and the car is registered/has plates/is legal to drive, you must have auto insurance for it.

Last i looked the plates STAY WITH THE DEBTOR. Maybe he planned to drive your car all weekend. Was it a nice ride? CALL the LENDER Monday morning and get it straight. The plates belong to you, not the lender, nor the repo man. They are registered to you and are your property and responsibility. If the plates were used on another vehicle that was involved in a crime or accident, and someone wrote down the tag number, the information would come back to you, and you would have alot of explaining to do. If the car was reposessed with the plates still attached, and you can prove that, then the headache is with the repo man. He is responsible for the car and the personal property left with it. Once they take the car with the plates still attached, it's on them.

Yes. Getting insurance and plates with a salvaged title car should not be a problem. It shouldn't affect any of that... the only thing you need to worry about is if the place you got the car from properly fixed all of the problems on the vehicle.

Simple question, simple answer. CALL THE LENDER. They can tell you how much to redeem and how long to do it.

User Avatar

No. DMV ties the insurance to the license plates. If you still have the plate, then the state wants to see active insurance. This is the only way they know you still have the vehicle. In Florida, you can turn in the plates and receive a receipt for them. This will allow you to obtain new plates at no charge when you get another vehicle. You can also sell them back for up to 100.00 and pay for a new plate later when you purchase a new car.

Depends On How Strict Your Insurance Company Is, Also How Long Were The Plates Expired. But From Your Info Sounds Like You Should Be OK. Do Hope This Helps

Insure your car for a year ,then after a month return the plates and cancel the insurance. You should be credited any overage you paid in

User Avatar

If you want to keep it registered and keep the plates, yes.

User Avatar

No, although your vehicle registration will be voided and you'll be required to turn in your plates.
