    California SB100 Registration

    All, I'm going to document what i'm going through while registering my MK4 in California. Hopefully this will help others navigate this procedure. I'll update this post to keep the data all in one place.

    Given that the DMV is a real pain in the *** to get through, I'm constantly scheduling appointments with them. Once I'm waiting in there, I'm straight on my phone scheduling my next appointment just in case. They can always be cancelled, but it's useful to have a round in the chamber.

    Here's the timeline...

    July 27th 2019 - (15mins)
    Had an appointment to visit the DMV to start the process. This was a Saturday. DMV booted me out of the office quick as they don't start SB100 applications on Saturdays. Sacramento's phones don't ring on those days.

    July 29th 2019 - (3hrs)
    Finally reached the counter at 11am ( after having a 9:30am appointment ). Presented:
    - Form 343 - Application for Title or Registration
    - Form 5036 - Statement of Construction
    - Certificate of Origin from Factory Five
    - Receipts for kit and engine

    Asked to start the SB100 process. DMV took my forms, then had me wait in the holding pen for another 30mins. Told me that Sacramento is not handing out SB100 numbers until after I have a VIN. Supposedly new procedure. They did take my money and got the ball rolling.

    Left the DMV with:
    - all the docs that I took there
    - partially filled out Form 124
    - 3 one day moving permits to be used for CHP, BAR and Brake and light inpections
    - a receipt for my tax payment and one less check in my checkbook

    Made an appointment with the CHP.

    August 13th 2019 - (1.5hrs)
    Turned up for my appointment with the CHP in Oceanside. Presented all the docs that I showed to the DMV. Officer Stromer looked over my car then we took it to his bay and up on a lift for inspection. He noted down engine and transmission numbers, used the FFR frame number as the VIN then affixed a small blue label to the frame next to the frame number. He completed Form 124. Next stop DMV again to get a SB100 number.

    Left the CHP with:
    - all the docs I took there
    - a completed Form 124

    August 14th 2019
    Called the BAR to schedule an appointment. BAR will not talk to me until i have an official piece of paper in my hand showing a SB100 number. A verbal number from the DMV will not be accepted.

    August 16th 2019 - (1hr)
    Arrived at the DMV to continue the process. They called Sacramento and I was issued SPCNS# 2019160. Took about an hour. Most of that time was the agent at the desk reading the manual on how to proceed with the process.

    Left the DMV with:
    - all the docs I took there
    - a SPCNS number

    Then called the BAR to request an appointment. Gave them my VIN number from the CHP and the SPCNS number from the DMV. Appointment for 8/19/19 at 2:10pm

    August 19th 2019 - (1hr)
    Brake and Lamp appt 8:30am. It was hard to find a shop that would do the inspection but after calling 6 or 7 shops I finally found one. Guy checked the lights, adjusted my headlights. He then had me drive past the shop at 20mph and told me to brake at the line on the street. They were measuring stop distance. He didn't check the reverse light I added

    Left the shop with
    - Certificate for Brake inspection
    - Certificate for Lamp inspection


    BAR appt 2:10pm. I half expected this but it allowed me to spend a couple hours driving in the car today. Turned me away as I didn't have the official SB100 certificate. I'll make another appointment after it turns up in the mail

    Im in the same process as you. Regarding your next appointment with DMV; the sequence number paper is not at the local office. It will be mailed to you from the sacramento office.

    Correct, but it's a small step along the process to even get them to call Sacramento and get a verbal. I called the BAR and they don't accept verbals. Only the official doc. Plan is to go to the DMV in the morning and get the SB100 request underway.

    I just received my SB100 certificate from Sacramento within 12 calendar days. Surprisingly fast. I have an appointment to the ref at the end of the month. Good luck on your process.

    I started DMV process last fri, in paso Robles 2nd in line at 7am, they open at 8am
    What a joke, not the process, the rude, incompetent people.

    Rude woman comes out 10 min b4 they open, hands out letters according what you are there for. Asks what I'm there for, I say 30 day temp for new kit car. She says we don't issue 30 day permits anymore. I ask, how am I suppose to go to 3 places in one day? she says we don't issue 30 day permits, again. She says well sort it out inside. Tells us to go to man at kiosk just inside door, he will issue number.

    Appointments go in first, so now I'm 10th in line, he has to go to her three times to ask what he's suppose to do.
    I go to him, he yells across to rude woman they already have numbers. She yells back, those are letters, not number, you need to issue numbers.

    I get number B-001, sit down, woman that was behind me in line asks what number did you get?
    She says she got same B-001, we go back to kiosk, you issued us same number, he gives her B-002

    I get called to window, they give me 4 pages to fill out, 30 seconds later they call me up to different window, I said I cannot fill out 4 pages in 30 seconds. He says come back to him when I'm done.

    I finish 4 pages go back to his window, he's not there, 10 min, he walks by and says your forms filled, I say of course. He keeps on walking. 10 more minutes, rude woman calls me to her window. Says I'm giving you one day permit, I ask again how am I suppose to go to 3 places in one day? She says after you get brake and light inspection come back and I'll issue 30 day temp.
    I say you just told me twice, outside that you don't issue 30 day temp permits. She gives me dirty look.

    I pay fees, walk out with one day permit.

    Next visit should be fun, I'll be going to San Luis Obispo dmv.

    Man I sure miss the Low Gatos DMV, so smooth 3 different cars. Even Texas was easy.
