In Georgia I can pay the Ad Valorem tax without paying a plate fee or having any insurance on the vehicle. Then if I (or someone else) wanted to buy insurance and a tag later on to resume operation there wouldn't be any penalties for lapsed insurance coverage.
I think that's similar to their non-op.
A penalty for lapsed insurance coverage?
Doesn't make any sense to me either way.
We don't need a registration if we don't drive on public roads, and we don't need insurance if we don't drive on public roads (unless the vehicle has a lien and the lender requires it).
Thanks for the explanation Catfish.
NON OP in Cali means it cant leave your property on to any kind of road. a non-op cost 10 bucks a yr.
non op is in place of a reg tag.
That just leaves me with more questions...
If it can't leave your property, why does it need a registration?
Your vehicle is your personal property, is it not?
Do your furniture, appliances, lawnmower and such also need registrations? LOL
