Licensing in New Mexico

Anyone out there who went through licensing/registration for a new Escape in New Mexico?

After wire transferring my check to Escape Industries I received in the mail an Escape Certificate of Origin, Customs Form 7501, and a Bill of Sale, which I then brought to the nearest New Mexico DMV, expecting to get registered and walk out holding plates. The Moriarity office insisted on seeing the trailer first. I left empty handed.

I then drove to the DMV in Rio Rancho, NM, with the same documents. That DMV accepted everything. I paid the fees and they gave me my title and a license plate and a NM certificate of registration. Drove to Chilliwack and towed it home.

Myron why is there not a standard for all DMV's ? We tried that going to another city not much better . Wish we had taken care of it as soon as we crossed into California up north as others got in and out , no problem . Pat

Pat, nobody's ever been able to answer that one, and it's not for lack of asking.

The DMV regs are the DMV regs. I think when you boil it down what you got is them who know the regs and them who do not. Add to that them too lazy to take time to understand the regs and, them who choose to make their own interpretation the right one.

Think reading the first amendment and you get it.

Thanks for the feedback, Myron. Like so much else in life, apparently it's pretty easy once you find competent help.

Same thing happens in Florida, Myron. Florida law allows registration with the proper documentation, but many of the DMV clerks have never done it and are clueless when someone attempts to do so. At least some of them will defer to a supervisor, who generally understands the regs. Others just make things difficult.

We were bringing back a used trailer and never could get a plate before driving up to Chilliwack to pick it up. But, after still hitting a brick wall when we returned, our local AAA office was very helpful in checking it out for us and directing us to a knowledgable person to get all our stuff done once we returned home. The Canadian title really throws the local DVM in a tizzy since it looks NOTHING like any title most of them have even seen. If the local clerk is confused bump up to a supervisor.
