I read that the DMV vehicle reg fees are going back down starting July 1, 2011. One of my car's registration expires in mid-July so I expected its 2011-2012 fees to be much cheaper than 2010-2011. But when I used the DMV's online reg-fee calculator, the cost was only 12% less than 2010-2011 whereas I was expecting it to be 40% less.

Is the calculator wrong? Or are the fees not going down?

The 2 yr tax extension that passed in 2008 is set to expire june 30th. Low life govenor jerry brown & the foul & horrid democratic legislature will do what they can to extend those taxes for the next 5 yrs. The public unions own brown & the legislature & they desperately want those taxes extended. Someone has to pay for the high salaries, benefits, pensions, etc of the public employees such as prison guards, caltrans, teachers, dmv employees, etc. **** them !

No renewals will be allowed until the budget is ironed out. There will be a no-penalty extension for registrations expiring July 1st and later.

Clowns .. I delayed my purchase of an e90 M3 as a result ...coming from driving a honda civic .. It's the principle of the matter IMO ... Let them tax me on my $15k beater .. screw paying $600-700 a year to register my car just because I can afford something nicer.

Does anyone know when this will be finalized (ie, when we know for sure how much the fees are). My weekend car gets driven only 1000 mi per year, and the difference in reg fees is gonna be almost $700 between the new rate and old rate. I would just sell the car if the fees don't drop. I'm tired of paying this socialist state

I like the way you talk. You are exactly right. Low life brown trying everything to make sure the tax extensions get extended as if we aren't already taxed to death.

"Low life Brown" wouldn't have had to do anything with the DMV fees if Schwarzenegger had left them where they were after the Gray Davis recall. We were all used to paying a lot more then, anyway; now we're screaming over an increase?

This is so obtuse. The governor says the CA High Patrol will be instructed to ignore expired July tags until it is known if the tax/fees extension will be passed or not.
Ok, what about when you go to another state and the police/state troopers tag you for driving with expired registration? Think they are going to listen to such a lame excuse as "the CA state legislature and governor are working on it"?
Additionally, parking enforcement (at least in Los Angeles) can tag you for expired tags when you park you vehicle. Think they are going to pass up the revenue? Even if you can get the fee waived, it will take a lot of your time and effort to do so.
Just bill me at the applicable rate for my July registration and then for an additional amount if the tax/fees extension is passed.
And yes, I'm going out of state the first of August with my vehicle that has a July renewal (expired) for all law enforcement to see. This is just incredibly stupid; no surprise whatsoever though.....
