No License Tag - License Plate

We will be picking up our 19 Escape in May, coming up from Georgia where they will not issue a tag, something about form T-22B verification. So we have two problems, no tag, and have to be back in GA within 30 days or they hit us with a 10% on cost of the trailer penalty. My questions are will it be difficult to get back into Canada with out a tag on the trailer after pickup, and what was your experience (if you didn't have a tag either) driving home?

I picked up in 2014 and traveled the first 6 weeks without a tag. (Chilliwack to Texas, although I was headed to North Carolina) No problems. I was glad that I had a tag when I entered Louisiana - more psychological, than anything, as it seemed the roads were full of police.

I'm not aware of anyone incurring trouble returning home in a leisurely way without a tag, your paper work should suffice. Some of us who had other trailers took our old tag and transferred them once home. As far as the 30 day rule, I think that is 30 days once you return physically, you have to register. Just like when you move to another state, once you move and settle in, you have 30 days to transfer your old tags to your new state tags. That can be cleared up with a visit to local office or research the Georgia regulations on line, that is what I'd do. That way you are always a step ahead of the uninformed.

I would be hesitant to cross the border without plates too.

If they stay near Sumas, they will not be crossing with plates as Escape brings it across. But , yes if they are planning on heading back north could be, but that crossing is so used to Escapes with and without plates. Just make sure you have insurance in place.

Thanks Jim, I have been told that it is 30 days from the date on the Bill of Sale.

I just read here https://dor.georgia.gov/motor-vehicl...ties#Penalties
30 days when vehicle is transferred which is when you pick it up in Sumas, the date on the import documents will have this, not the bill of sale and the penalty is $10, not 10%

Jim, I read that over and then called the GA DMV to verify. Seems I was off a bit on the fine. I was told that they went by the date on the bill of sale as to when the clock starts ticking and the fine would be 10% of the total of fees they are supposed to collect at the time of registration plus 1% a month on top of that. In my case this could amount to $3 to 400 dollars, which is much less then I had originally thought. I'm going to try and get a better estimate.

I remember others having this same 30 day issue, but in other states. Turns out it was 30 days from the day/date the trailer enter its home state. Might be worth checking out in this manner. Someone said save a gas receipts as you travel and one of the entering date in the home state.


Good luck.

Yes this rule applies to new residents and should apply to new purchases also.
