Quoting AyostoLeon (Reply 97):

I learned the meaning of just about every road sign out there before I even got behind the wheel the first time. As far as driving in cities and highways, there is really no requirement to show you have this ability at least in the US. My driving test in the US was literally a quick drive around a neighborhood and back to the DMV. No highways, no major traffic. Then they had a safe, cordoned off area for you to parallel park and a couple of other things.

Quoting AyostoLeon (Reply 97):
Such a qualification can not guarantee that you will never be involved in a RTA but should safety on the roads be jeopardized simply because you think it is inconvenient to sit a test?

I think that the American experience shows that such tests are unnecessary and the bureaucracy expensive.

If insurance companies want to get together and make some kind of educational course that they require or give you a discount on your premiums if you attend, go ahead. They already do that to some extent. In fact, the only Americans I know that went through formal driving training did so for a 10% discount insurance companies offer.

Quoting Revelation (Reply 98):
I'll point out that there are (too many) people here in the US illegally and they don't have any known identity as far as government/police databases are concerned. They buy beater or stolen cars cheap using cash. Good luck finding one of these people after a hit and run. I guarantee you they won't stop because they have no insurance, no registration, no license and know they're going to be deported if they get caught.

Yet another reason to eliminate registration and licensing requirements.

Yes the current law allows to operate a vehicle without plates and merely the dealers cardboard advertisement for a period of up to six months. A temp sticker known as a dealers report of sale (ROS) sticker is affixed to the lower corner of the front windshield in the right corner. The sticker is approx the same size of a 3x5 card with the purchaser info as well as the vin. Usually the plates arrive in about 30 days, however you can legally operate it for up to six months without installing the plates. However there is no way to see just by looking at the car when the date of sale was unless you examine the ROS.

That's how driver training in the US works! And it works as well if not better than most EU countries.

I'm saying I don't care where you learn to drive, you must meet the standards set by the government. By what I read (if I understood you correctly) you're saying that you could have learned on a farm so licenses mean nothing. No. Licenses mean that wherever you learned to drive, you did a satisfactory enough of a job

Now, how many bad apples get their driver's license every day? The roads are full of them.

So you're advocating tougher standards? I'm ok with that, but that seems to go in the opposite direction of what you're arguing

Quoting PPVRA (Reply 91):
Most people and companies impose on themselves much tighter rules than the government creates.

Ironically, you are making a big deal about the government's rules on driving not being enough so you're doing what exactly what you are complaining about. But I don't follow your logic as it pertains to this discussion--having a plate and having a DL... that is what the government requires. How do people impose having "more than a plate or DL?" If you're talking about driver's ed making insurance lower, there is a very obvious reason for that

Why is anyone here still bothering to debate with PPVRA? He is just trolling and insisting on a ridiculous standard and personal definitions that makes no sense. He seems unable to comprehend that "the government" and "the law/rules" aren't something just abusively applied, but that they rather are created by the people using and living with the system and rules created. We create our own laws and insist they be applied to all, it is not some draconian measure imposed upon by some separate authority.

I think he is now just having fun and trolling (my personal opinion) so I stopped discussing it with him and just enjoy reading his ludicrous posts and reasoning (though I am not saying he always this way, he posts enough that I know he is intelligent and can make well reasoned arguments, he is just not doing so here). However I do fully agree that he is:

I'm no fan of license plate scanners showing up everywhere, but I'm less of a fan of people who have come here illegally. The best way to deal with this issue is to make sure you can audit every business to make sure every employee is here legally and is paying the proper taxes. Again, I don't like license plate scanners but if they can help us get rid of illegal drivers I am willing to put up with them.

More driving means more risk. Americans start driving at a much younger age, as young as 15. Insurance companies see greater than average risk until you are 25 years old, so that's a greater amount of risk exposure for a longer amount of time than in Europe.

Just remembered: insurances also give discounts to students who get good grades. Another indication that driving safety is about making wise decisions, not your ability to parallel park. Good luck regulating that!

Fact of the matter is, driving is easy. Very easy. Bigger factors affecting safety appear to be unrelated to actual driving skills or in depth knowledge of traffic rules.

I used to live in St. Louis, Missouri and I would see A LOT of people with Illinois "Temp tags" What that meant to every cop in the city was "I don't have insurance and or a license, because in Illinois you didn't need them to get the temp tag. Temp tags are a great excuse to get pulled over and never give the police an excuse to pull me over.

Here in Michigan I see people driving with no plates and it is usually because the person never registers the car and just drives it anyway, likely not being caught. This is VERY common in Detroit where the police don't bother enforcing this kind of crime. Another popular thing that I have seen a lot of places is having an outdated out of state plate on the car. They probably think the police will not notice an out of state expired plate because the stickers aren't going to be as obvious to them as the ones they are used to seeing. The police would have to inspect the plate very closely to see the date. I notice this when I travel around the Midwest and see old Michigan plates (a type we don't have anymore) on cars. I see cars here in Detroit. I have noticed it in Michigan too. My parent's neighbor has had expired California plates on her car for 5 years, in Missouri. She told me that she'll register the car and get the correct plates if she gets pulled over. I bet she doesn't have a valid license either.

Or better, own and drive a car and not be forced to put a largely useless tag on it that on top of it being ugly, carries with it privacy risks.

The tag is only useless to you. However, when you are driving on public roads you need to comply with related laws and that includes plates on your car. Not a big deal to get excited about.

And "privacy"? If you want privacy then stay off of the public roads. You are going to be seen, just like you will if you walk into a store.

It has happened to me once.

If you had been stopped you might have been given a ticket, but allowed to drive to the DMV. Depends if it was your DL to tag that had expired. Oklahoma has a 30 day grace period, with a $1 a day fine. After that it gets expensive.

Quoting PPVRA (Reply 63):
From what I understand, in the US, there is no such system. Either you get somebody there to drive your car or it gets towed.

The police here have been pretty good at writing voidable tickets for situations where you lost your wallet. Especially when your wallet was stolen and you have your police report in the car for them to see if they stop you.

Quoting PPVRA (Reply 63):
All laws are enforced by violent force or the threat thereof. Traffic laws are no different. Being prohibited from driving because you forgot your license at home is ridiculous, and if you ignore the police officer and drive off in protest, he will pull a gun on you sooner or later. Try to defend yourself from this absurdity and you may end up with a bullet lodged somewhere you don't want. Draconian? Yeah, absolutely.

You drive off after being stopped and you have raised sufficient red flags to get several more police cars involved. Now if you are one of the yo-yos with an open carry gun things can get even worse.

But before you drive off in "protest" remember that a ticket is a courtesy alternative to an actual arrest. Drive off when you are stopped and you get the full party. Cuffs, free ride to the police department, free photos & fingerprints and a not-so-nice place to stay until a lawyer gets you out. Then you get to try to find where your car was towed to and you get to pay that also.

Quoting PPVRA (Reply 63):
If you are worried about tax and registration, there are other ways to keep track of that.

The Tag & Tax system has been functioning too long for it to be stopped. It is one of those tax revenue systems that automatically has revenues increases based on the inflation impact of car prices. Live with it.

Quoting DeltaMD90 (Reply 64):
If you get a gun pulled on you for not having a DL then you hit the jackpot... go to any lawyer and you're gonna be a rich man

When a cop pulls a gun there is generally a pretty serious reason. Put that reason in front of a jury and you won;'t be so rich.

Also recognize that if a cop pulls a gun you are probably heading to jail. Your courtesy alternative to an arrest may have been lost because of your actions.

What I was getting at is that no cars have to leave the dealers with a plate, will CA now make it mandatory that all existing cars without plates be made to wear them? It would be daft if they didn't.

30 days? Here I go to my county´s registration office with a cert from an insurance company, the car ownership cert (whoever can show this piece of paper is considered the legal owner, so you´d better keep it in a safe place and NOT in the car, it even says so on the paper) and the (still valid) report from the last technical road safety inspection. It will not take 10 minutes from the moment I have been called up to the clerk giving me a slip with my new registration number. With this I go to one of several numberplate embossing shops, which are usually located around the registraion office, and get my number plates printed (costs about 20 Euros for a car, motorbikes are cheaper because you only need one plate). Then I return to the registraion office, pay my fee and get the official seals afixed to the number plates and the certificate of registration (which I have to bring along when I´m driving).
I registered two vehicles this year, one car and one motorbike and each of them didn´t take me one hour. All I had to do was to mount the numberplates on my vehicle. Add to this half an hour drive each to and from the registration office to the village I live in.

Were you there when it happened? For example, if I stop a person with no license (not just not having it with them), they get a citation and go on their merry way. However, if the person is suspended or revoked, it's a different story and they will either get a court date if they are local, or be held until they are seen by a judge, or released if they post $400 bond and get a court date set. Always two sides to a story...except in your world of course, where only your side is correct.

My randomly assigned (in fact it's sequential not random) plate features "BN" which is a popular cookie, and "FN", a far right political party, too bad !

There is a small space where you can display one amongst the French departments (usually where you live, or hail from), not included originally but politicians lobbied for it because it seems people want to know from where people are (probably to say things like "of course he drives like a retard, he's from ....." ), I find that concept ludicrous and have experienced the consequence first hand as a kid when traveling from the Paris region to Brittany where my father is from, children would point fingers and call us names just by looking at the plate, so I chose Reunion Island (where I've never been, and you can't really drive from there to metropolitan France).

Here in Michigan I see people driving with no plates and it is usually because the person never registers the car and just drives it anyway, likely not being caught. This is VERY common in Detroit where the police don't bother enforcing this kind of crime.

That's unusual. Most cops know car registration aids in crime prevention and it also helps pay their salaries. One should think they could put on some cops to just clean up that problem and they'd pay for themselves.

I wasn't clear, before the system was department by department and you had to change plates if you moved from one to another (there are a hundred of them !), now the department indication is just decorative, the ID is on a national system. Next step is a European wide system.

Your old system is like the Germsan system. In Ireland, where a car keeps the same registration number on it´s plate, which contains both the date of the first registration and the county, where it was registered in, people preferred cars registered in Dublin. Especially second hand car dealers complained that a car previously registered in the province would have less of a secondhand value. It seems that people want to be seen as sophisticated city dwellers and not as country hicks.
For me here I don´t care. My number plates start with COC, which means Cochem-Zell (two towns at the Moselle river, which, together with the surrounding villages, form a county). Before I used to have B for Berlin, MG for Moenchengladbach and K for Cologne.

It would be good if Australia adopted a similar approach. At the moment we have state-by-state registration, exactly the same as the USA (in fact our licenses plates are similarly identical). This can cause some issues on a national basis. One, law enforcement, has been mentioned throughout this thread. Another, which amuses me, is that apparently speed cameras in NSW couldn't identify Victorian license plates, so innocent New South Whalians were receiving speeding tickets clocked up by Victorians who had the same license plate combination! Then there are varying road safety standards between states. NSW require annual testing, while QLD and ACT don't, for example. Even the requirements to get a driving license vary by state, especially relating to our somewhat convoluted L and P system for young drivers. Overall, I think that moving to a national system, while highly unlikely to ever happen, would make the process much more efficient.

In fairness to PPVRA, it's really not so basic anymore.

While I agree that his position is quite very extreme and that most of what he is arguing against has valid reason to exist and should not be changed, there is an opposite, and frankly increasing level of bearuocratic extremism. Though outdated by a few years, this article is something I happened to randomly stumble up on the other day.

A DL & the associated registrations required to operate a vehicle are essential to road safety. And while I'm almost always in favor of increasing the level of scrutiny required to receive and maintain driver privelages, I do feel that the DMV is not a cookie jar for the state to use as an ad-hoc collection agency.

Just out of curiosity, why is it less of a big deal (lacking a better term) to operate with no license versus being suspended? I would think in either case there is a lack of sufficient demonstration of ability to safely operate.

In one case the person has e.g. simply left his license at home (here the fine for this is IIRC less than 10 Euros), and he can show it within the next few days at the nearest police station and everything is fine, but he is not banned from driving. Happened to me before, e.g. by accidentally leaving my wallet in my working trousers.

In the second case the person has already demonstrated that he is NOT as safe driver (the license has obviously been revoked for a reason) and is therefore being banned from driving on court order, or has never demonstrated that he knows how to operate a vehicle in a safe manner (and this also means to know and obey the traffic rules. I once knew a German anarchist, who complainerd that he had to obey traffic rules, claiming that to make him obey them the state bwould have had to ask him personally if he agreed with them).

I interpreted what KaiGywer said as never having been issued one, not simply leaving it at home. His () in the original statement seems to point in that direction. If that's not what he meant, than yes, I understand there is a mountain of difference between being suspended and just forgetting it at home.

Driving without a license (either revoked or never obtained) is very serious here and could lend you in jail if it's a repeat offense. It also means you don't have insurance and that's another serious offense. The car would also be impounded and if convicted kept by the state.

Quoting DarkSnowyNight (Reply 131):

In France we don't have something similar to the DMV, in fact a DL is not an ID (although it can be used as a substitute in some circumstances, but not to take a flight for example), and you get it for life unless you lose it. My parents' DL have pictures of them in their 20s, very funny ! The ID card is mandatory for many things (and is free) and the state doesn't mess with it as far as I know.

What your link says is both ridiculous and outrageous !

Since most people receive something from the government here, even if uber rich (children's benefits and tax breaks), there is no need to play such games to recover money, you just cut the benefits.

You interpreted correctly. I guess you'll have to ask our legislature about that one... To be honest, I don't know why. I guess a suspended driver has already proven themselves to be a "bad driver", while as one without one hasn't proven him/herself one way or another. One is a $20 fine, the other is a misdemeanor. Some of our laws don't make a whole lot of sense.

The reason CA gives you 6 months to put on plates is because their beauracracy is so slow that they can take up to 3 months to mail you the plates! I once went an entire summer without plates because the state took so long.

Most states aren't run this way. Plates come quickly, or are provided by dealers, are easily transferable from old car to new, or can be assigned and picked up at the DMV at any time.

Quoting JoePatroni707 (Reply 21):
Understandably dealers are opposed to this new law. If plates have to be affixed before delivery, then it could delay the delivery of the car to the customer for a few days before the plates can be processed. This could especially be true if the car is sold say late on a Friday evening, having to wait till Monday for the DMV to open to process the application.

There is no reason this has to be the case.

That's simply a rule change that would allow the dealer to interface with a computer to check your record to make sure you are allowed to register a car, and then submit the paperwork on Monday. The dealer should have plates in a locked area and issue them like many states already allow. I know in Ohio you get the plates when you get the car. It's not a big deal.

If you are trading a car, you should be able to transfer the plates without issue like many states.

Or you could do what Massachusetts does (did?) where you must register the car yourself and you have 72 hours to do so, so that way if you buy it on Friday night you have until Monday night to do it.

Quoting ltbewr (Reply 77):
In many countries, the dealership puts on the initial plate from the time it gets to them, the purchasing owners information later entered in their Motor Vehicle registration systems. This is probably what will happen in CA.

California already does this, but only for high value/high theft vehicles. If you buy a Ferrari or Mercedes SL, you will get plates immediately.

In the UK dealers will be assigned a range of numbers (ie WA63 ABA-ABZ), when a vehicle is sold, the dealer registers the vehicle with the DVLA and issues a Tax Disc. Before sale the vehicle can be driven but must have 'Trade Plates' which a temporary licence plates assigned to companies in the motor trade displayed front and rear

As a new California resident I was very surprised that the state did not issue temporary tags like other states for new cars. Has the state determined whether they will issue paper tags for new cars leaving the dealer? Also the point was brought up (facetiously) that one of the reasons that California let you drive with no plates for 90 days was due to delays in getting your new plates mailed to the owner. In Louisiana, I was required to physically visit the DMV to get tags for my new car. It was a quick and striaghtforward process to get the tags once I got there. I find it interesting that California would mail the plates for a new car to the owner, especially since I was required to go to the Oakland DMV to get my California tags when I moved here.

Well, back in my younger days, we didn't require license plates for our horses or a DL to operate them. The only thing was that if someone stole a horse, he/she was shot or hung. Nowadays, people get a slap on the wrist for stealing a car (plate or no plate), get released for a future court date and then go out and steal another car in the meantime.

I'm of the thinking that irrespective of license plates being another tax collection, I also believe in this time and day, they are important for many reasons, as has been presented in this topic. And I agree.

I must add a story from about 1975 or so when I had to transport a vehicle without plates from Detroit to Dearborn for some repairs I had no expertise with. Instead of simply swapping plates from another vehicle, adult beverages prevailed, and I took some lacquered white cardstock and rendered a phoney license plate right down to the faint shadows on the lowers and sides of the numbers (Michigan used to emboss their plates then). Even used a piece of reflective 3M tape for the update sticker on the lower right hand side. It was perfect. Everything went swimmingly until I was stopped at a red light on Michigan Avenue. There was a Dearborn Police car behind me. It started to rain. I had used water-soluble designer's gouache instead of a latex-based paint for the numbers. The numbers started to drip down. Guess who went to jail?

Quick end of story...I was charged with the obvious, plus forgery. The judge had a sense of humour (as did the arresting officer after all this was presented) and I escaped with reduced charges paying only court costs, and a 25 dollar fine (but of course I had to spend some four hours in the tank until my buddy bailed me out). So be it for yesterday. best regards...jack

Unfortunately, California is militant about front plates. It stems from the proliferation of red-light cameras, and front plate enforcement is biggest in those cities. That said, Los Angeles dumped all of its cameras, but others haven't. I think the new toll roads use the rear plate.
