Complaint Review: California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)
California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) DMV purposefuly not sending registration renewal in order to obtain additional late fees San Jose, California
*UPDATE Employee: please be honest
*Consumer Comment: You are solely responsible for keeping up with when your registration is due!
Clearly I am not the first person this has happened to... Our state is financial ruins so it's not surprising to me that they are lying about sending my registration renewal out... My car is a year old, I didn't realize my registration had expired, I don't even have my license plate memorized yet. The year flew by... I recently realized my tags were expired and was baffled as to why I hadn't received my registration renewal. So to be safe I checked my Dad's house to see if it was accidentally sent there... annndd nothing. So, today I called the DMV to find out what's up. They said, "We've been sending you your registration renewals monthly since March." Bullsh*t. I haven't received ANYTHING in the mail fromt he DMV. NOTHING... So the DMV says, "Perhaps it was misdelivered." Misdelivered, once maybe, but FOUR times, doubtful... I told the DMV guy he's lying and clearly he's high... Then he hung up on me.
I honestly believe that because the state of California is in such a terrible financial crisis the DMV is purposefully neglecting to send out registration renewals in an attempt to collect more late fees to offset the budget crisis our state has been hit w/. My registration is now going to cost me $410, $159 of which are late fees...
There's something fishy going on w/ the DMV and I will get to the bottom of it. I'm thinking about calling KRON 4 and seeing if they're interested in tackling this. I'm so pissed...
