Vehicle Registration Amnesty Program

Vehicle Code Section 4750.1 was amended to add a vehicle registration amnesty program for qualified owners of specially constructed vehicles (SPCNS), for which the value was under-reported and/or the vehicle make was incorrectly reported. The amnesty program provides waiver from prosecution, in return for the immediate reporting and payment of previously under-reported vehicle value and/or vehicle make. This program is effective July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012.

You will need:

  • The Certificate of Title or an Application for Duplicate Title (REG 277) unless there is a lienholder/legal owner.
  • Complete a Statement of Facts (REG 256) stating the correct vehicle value, date the vehicle was purchased/acquired, that incorrect information was provided when originally registering the vehicle, and that you are eligible to participate in the vehicle registration amnesty program.
  • You must contact the Bureau of Automotive Repair at 800-622-7733 to determine the smog emissions requirements.
