Most important for registration and import as well. Takes about 3 to 4 weeks to be processed. Carries all the details of the vehicle, build date, despatch date, to which dealer and what options were fitted. We normally get one for each vehicle we ship to the US to present to customs prior to clearance.

Wait, I don't have your forms back from Customs yet, so in turn you have none of the requisite documentation.

read the recent threads by (I think) jayz and navydevildoc on the CA DMV topic. Lots of good info in both.

Even the older Defenders had emissions equipment. I wouldn't see that as being a problem. It is if it still has it installed.

I am having the same exact issue here is what the DMV just requested on a new import.

1. The Last registration certificate. Or if applying for a California Title, the last title issued. Documents must be original if you are requesting California title

2. Please contact the manufacturer of the vehicle and ask if the vehicle complies with all applicable U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and U.S. Emission Standards. You must obtain a letter confirming this information and this letter must identify your vehicle by the vehicle identification number.

I registered another truck at the same time only the other one already had a Florida registration and it went through no problem have the title and plates already?

Any suggestions appreciated.

you and a couple of other forum members have received that same letter... i think that a COA or a Heritage Certificate will not do the job cause they make no mention of the rover being road worthy for the US or emissions friendly.....

however... i did call Land Rover in New Jersey... 1-800 provided in the dmv letter.... i gave them my vin and they said they would research it and get back to me in a couple of days...

what kind of rover are you trying to register??? is it a RHD?

Aaron please read what is being asked for:

Last registration- you have the original V5 which is the registration the truck imported on. In Europe vehicle registration transfers with the car. Fill in your details on the Original V5. I worked from a scan and never had your original as you know.

Vehicle compliance:
Of course it does not comply. You have the ORIGINAL EPA 7501 and DOT HS7 waivers listing the VIN and that the vehicle has been granted entry based on its age exemption. There is clearly no further documentation that you can get from the manufacturer that it does, because it does not.

My suggestion would to to go to a different DMV location and find a clerk with an IQ over 75 as there is no further documentation available from the Feds or the manufacturer beyond what is in the folio I provided you. Navydevildoc had to hunt around to a few before success. He has a thread here about that process.

A heritage certificate or build date letter are irrelevant to what is being asked for and would be a waste of time and money.

Was the other truck you registered @ the same time an imported vehicle ? If so it would appear the mechanism with Ca is to simply title something in another state first. My understanding on this based on other clients experience was that it had to be titled in another state for a year first if trying to get around the import angle with Ca.

i went to three different dmv offices and got three different responses.... i contacted Ca. DMV technical compliance office and they said in a round about way that the 25yr exemption rule isn't going to cut it! they want a letter from land rover stating that it meets US safety and emission guidlines... if it doesnt then you need to spend $10k making it compliant at a CARB approved repair station.... already called and got an estimate...

last year i registered a d90 exmod easily however in 2014 the law has change... this a link to the dmv's new law which requires all used cars to have emission equipment....

http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/vctop/app...af/hs43600.htm

the saga continues!

Doug, I do not have the original V5 it never came with the truck just a copy. I have asked the seller to get me a new one and he is working on it. The DMV has all the original documentation and sent it all to the compliance section so I have to see it through with these guys as there is no option to go to another office?

I have called and talked to them to explain this but it seems the are part of the League of Morons that I have been fighting my whole life...

Working on options and would be happy to try whatever you suggest or anyone else with CA experience. I have read the Navydevildoc post and tried to follow and thought I had...

Sorry forgot this part, Yes the truck was an import 84 110 Double Cab originally registered in Florida and although I had to do a full CHP inspection Vin, lights, engine, etc... it went smooth and have title in hand.

Well if a truck previously registered in another state circumvents the new California DMV bs, lets get that done.

Hmmmmm? I wish that was the case. I did present them with a Texas title, mind you an official document, and they still didn't want to register the rover!
