This week we'll explore the wide world of vehicle registrations. It just so happens that a few people have sent questions about various registration conundrums recently, so let's take a look.
"I've noticed numerous motor homes and fifth-wheel recreational vehicles are registered out of state, particularly with Montana license tags, although the owners are full-time residents of Arizona," wrote Tucsonan Bill Brown. "I've also been told that the registration fees are significantly lower in other states, again specifically in Montana, when compared to Arizona." Brown said he thinks this is against the law and wonders why there isn't more enforcement of such laws.
The tricky part of the law, which says it is unlawful to register a vehicle in another state if it is garaged in Arizona, is the part about residency, said Cydney DeModica, spokeswoman for the state's Motor Vehicle Division.
If you spend less than seven months here, you are considered a nonresident and don't have to register your vehicle here, she said.
However, if you move here permanently, there is no grace period for vehicle registration. You are considered a resident if you take a job here or enroll kids in school and pay resident tuition.
To report possible offenders, call the state's vehicle-registration compliance hot line, at 1-800-657-4322.
If no one answers, leave a message when prompted with the type of vehicle, the license number, the address where it is parked and a description of the location if it is a residence. This information will help the department locate and look into the vehicle's registration, DeModica said.
