Kingdom?

Sitting here at DMV in Atlanta. Registering a 1986 ex mod 110

Lady at DMV asked me if the truck came from the Kingdom? I said it did.

She asked me if I drove it from England to the kingdom? Told her no.

She asked me if I drove it from the kingdom to here?

No again.

Still waiting

Do not underestimate the lack of common sense at the DMV.
When presented a unusual request, they go right to what is prompted on their computer to ask a registrant. They see your paperwork and it says United Kingdom. You say you got the truck from England. They can't put it in their mind that UK and England are the same. Better confirm with them that they are synonymous or else that person may reject it.

My experience with the DMV was not as bad as this, but close. I think they don't like curve balls thrown at them.

Don't you need EPA import declaration form? If I remember correctly, I needed that in NY as well? Maybe they are confused how it got into the US in the first place.

generally, "the kingdom" as an expression refers to Saudi Arabia.

I've told this story before, but when I built my trailer I went to the DMV to get it registered, and the nice lady behind the counter gave me two temporary tags - even after telling her it wasn't necessary to spend the time writing out the second one, she did anyway. I I decided not to attempt to explain the concept of a trailer to her.

I titled a 130 in Annapolis, Maryland this morning. Went in and the information desk gave us a number that starts with an S which means we have to wait for a supervisor to become available. When our number was called we went up to the counter and the guy looks over the docs several times and finally fixates on the V5 and flips it over 3/4 times. He says " I see the one side is English, what language is the other side ?" I respond "Welsh". He comes back with "what Country is that" ?
I respond its more of a region. He come back with "in what country" I respond the United Kingdom. He says "I'll be right back" and slips behind the partition wall. He comes back, "I guess we can accept it". I just bit my tongue.

When I read this, all I was thinking was whether it had some Saudi connection when I saw the Kingdom. Never even thought United Kingdom.

Funny. Guess personal experience drives everything.

Mark Garrenton owns a 1984 bone stock 110 that was used by the British Embassy in Kenya.
Not sure why, but it is LHD.

When Mark went to VA DMV he was told that they couldn't title it.
Mark asked why and they said he didn't have the right paperwork.
When Mark asked what specific paperwork he needed, the reply was we aren't really sure, but it's not what you have.
The supervisor then refused to see Mark and the counter people ignored his further questions.

The next day Mark made a call to the capital and made a complaint.
DMV scheduled an appointment with someone local to Mark who processed his title and apologized for the extra trouble Mark went through.

Mark's first counter experience has to be in the top ten someone has somewhere on some list of stupid people doing silly things.

I was once told when registering it was not legal to even import one of these trucks, that DOT and EPA would not allow it. I said thats kinda funny because it is currently in my garage and Customs along with DOT and EPA gave me these papers approving it's entry through the Port of NY. The look on her face was priceless. Needless to say she showed it to the manager who registered 2 of my other trucks previously and said "no he has all the appropriate documentation go ahead and register it and give him his plates".

Too funny! When I regestered my ExMoD 110 this spring I had pretty much the same circus. The DMV clerck couldn't wrap her mind around the fact that the truck had never been titled before. In despeartion I told her it was the Queen's truck and the Queen didn't have to title it 'cause it was her damn country! Wrong answer.

So up the chain to the county supervisor then the district run around then up to Tallahassee to start the process all over again. Finally, a clerck at the state office who had just got out of the Army by chance overheard the conversation and expalined to everyone that military vehicles don't have titles. Seven working days (of my life I will never get back) later, I got my tag and title. Ugg.

My dad is co-owner of my jetta so that I could get a better rate on the loan. Well thy moved to their pace in PA last fall. I went this year are reregistered the car. Mind you the registration lists my address as its location. End of the month comes no registration from the DMV. So I take an hour and a half at lunch to go to the DMV to get the registration. Get it and ask e woman why I didn't get it in the mail. I was told all the paperwork plates and such is sent to the address on your drivers license. They ended up sending my stuff to the parents old address which was forwarded to their new address then to their house in CA since they were out there at the time. Needless to say I'm still confused about it.

I won't lie, this took me a second read to understand because we don't have front plates here.
