Do we have a registration card for our vehicles ?

Recommended Posts

Valv

I've got pulled over in KS and asked insurance and registration cards.

I showed insurance and...told officer I didn't have the registration card for my truck and never had it, he believed me after showing valid insurance with vin # on it.

I have and had many vehicles in MN but never, ever had a registration card, does it exist ?

I believe it is part of the card that they send you to renew your license.

That is correct and in Minnesota we ARE required to have it with us in our vehicles.

Neiko is right. Part of your vehicle registration renewal form will say "Cab card" and it's to be kept in the vehicle. My youngest son got a ticket in AZ about 3 years ago for the same thing. The court dismissed the ticket upon showing prove of registration, the "Cab card".

Well problem is I don't have any vehicle older than 1 year, they are not new, just bought within this year, and all I had from DMV is a yellow paper with all the info, I guess I can put that in the glovebox.

I agree with above and yes, the yellow slip from the dmv is what you need to carry in the vehicle for the first year. Same goes for trailers as well.

There is also a registration card you tear off your title. It's small, but is labeled with all the info.

Yup, you need to carry it with you in your vehicle and produce it upon the request of Law Enforcement. The paper work you describe from the DMV would meet such requirements. I cant speak about all jurisdictions....but most only have a “fix-it-ticket” type of cite issued when you cant produce it. It basically says that you have X number of days to appear at court or the local PD to produce the registration....does not cost you anything...just time...unless the vehicle is really not registered. In most cases...this is the same for “No Proof of Insurance” cites as well.

Cliffy,

Does that apply to trailer registration even with the lifetime license?

Not quite true. Take a good look at the back of your receipt and it says "If your vehicle is taxed based on the gross weight of the vehicle, you must keep this card in the vehicle at all times". Vehicals 1 ton and over and trailers are taxed by weight.

To be honest, I just dont know. so far in my 10 year career, I have never found myself in a position to be asking about trailer regs. Sorry, I cant help you on that one...I am on my days off....I could do some digging when I return to work and post an update if no one finds an answer first.

I am not sure about trailers. Vehicles.. I believe its the bottom right portion ofthe title that is the vehicle registration, next to the sellers notice of sale part of the title.

As for boats, when you renew your registration, the part that doesnt stick to the boat is the registration.

It used to be that when you went to register your tabs, you got a tear off portion back from mndot registrar. Now all you get is the paper that you take to dmv to register and that is your registration to keep in car. If I remember right its blue and white.

I hope you're not tearing off that section of the title and keeping it in your vehicle or worse, keeping the whole title in your vehicle.

I always forget to put my insurance ID card in the vehicle, let alone the registration. Everytime I have been stopped the officer usually gets bored with me search and says nevermind I trust you (after I explained I would be happy to call my company while he waited). Some day I am sure I won't get as nice of an officer.

Good info though guys. I might have to dig up some sort of registration now...

I write about 15-20 "no proof of ins." cites per month....and about 1-3 end up not really having insurance. You would truely be amazed to see how many people are driving without insurance on their vehicles.

Has anyone else ever recieved a letter from the MN DMV where you have to provide proof of your insurance...either by snail mail or on-line? I guess MN went to a new system about a year or so ago...dont need to show insurance when you regs. a vehicle at the DMV...they just does a random audit by mail. I got one back in Feb...sort a neat idea.

Any thoughts?

Personally, I don't think one should be able to obtain his vehicle license without showing proof. We are required to carry liability insurance in Minnesota. Shouldn't we be able to substantiate it? The problem was that all you had to do was provide an insurance policy number but were they ever verified? Probably not as that would have cost a lot of time and money. What's worse is that we're more or less required to protect myself from those that do not have insurance. To me that is a crime in itself.

You were supposed to show an ins card when registering your vehicles. They had many cases where insurance was purchased, got card with 6 months/1 year expiration (but paid for 1 month) then dropped policy. Card still showed vehicle was insured, but there was actually no policy anymore.

Cliffy take note of this, but you probably know it.....I've guess you've seen all of the "tricks".

Actually this threas was aimed at your response as a Law Officer, I actually didn't know bout the card on title, I checked mine and....I already put it in my truck.

Thanks for the help guys....

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.

      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.

      Went out to Otter Lake (next to Bald Eagle) on Wednesday, a lake filled with hammerhandles and could barely make out three small pike in the dirty water before giving up.  Was up on a lake in the Horseshoe chain that is also supposed to be filled with small pike and saw zero but the wife caught a small on a tip-up.  At least a big catfish came in and sat at the bottom of the hole for well over an hour.

      That’s a bucket list trip for me.  No reason that I haven’t been there yet outside of the fact it isn’t in my normal territory.  And that’s an ironic statement for me to make! Come to think of it, I should just plan it and go.  It’ll never happen otherwise.  Anybody got any pointers for heading that direction?  I wouldn’t even know where to start.  Pretty self sufficient for gear and travel and could figure it out eventually but a helping hand or even a guide reference would be appreciated.

      The ice is gone now. More than likely won't be anymore this year.

       that reminds me the batteries on that GPS tracker hid somewhere on your truck are running low. The red blinking light on the base unit here at home, sure has been annoying. Can't believe it showed you were out fishing in the wind, close to home anyway, today.

      Upper Red nears record winter harvest Ice fishing on Upper Red Lake has slowed in recent weeks, but the walleye harvest is on track to set or approach a wintertime record, numbers from an annual winter creel survey show. According to Henry Drewes, regional fisheries supervisor for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Bemidji, anglers through January had kept about 125,000 pounds of walleyes. The wintertime high for Minnesota's portion of the lake was slightly more than 140,000 pounds in 2015, DNR statistics show. Anglers harvested 109,327 pounds of walleyes in the winter of 2017, according to DNR creel survey results. "If we have an average February, we'll be right in that area" of 140,000 pounds, Drewes said. "Catch rates and pressure have really tapered off in the last (few weeks). I think that's related to winter fatigue and a slower bite." Wheel houses, which have exploded in popularity among winter anglers in recent years, now account for more than 80 percent of the ice fishing pressure on Upper Red, Drewes said. Anglers on Upper Red can keep four walleyes, of which only one can be longer than 17 inches. Walleye and northern pike season on Upper Red and other Minnesota inland waters closes Sunday, Feb. 25 and reopens Saturday, May 12. The Minnesota DNR manages 48,000 acres of Upper Red, while the remaining 72,000 acres are within the boundary of the Red Lake Indian Reservation and managed by the Red Lake Band of Chippewa. -- Brad Dokken Grand Forks Herald
