18.100 Planned Nonoperation (PNO) (CVC §4604)
The lienholder is not required to file a Certificate of Non-Operation (REG 102) form if the vehicle:
- Was currently registered when the lien originated
- Subsequently expired while being stored by the lienholder pending a lien sale.
- Fees (registration or PNO) are not due until the vehicle is sold at lien sale and must be paid within 20 days of sale to avoid penalties. A REG 102 is not required.
- If the vehicle was not currently registered when the lien originated, all fees and penalties will be due when the vehicle is subsequently sold.
