California Finalizes Program to Provide Amnesty to Owners of Illegally Titled/Registered Specially Constructed Vehicles
For the past several years, SEMA has been working with the California legislature and state agencies to provide protection for owners of improperly or illegally titled and registered specially constructed vehicles (SPCNS). Under a looming threat of prosecution, this program was pursued to help vehicle owners and builders avoid a situation that could have led to confiscated cars and felony law enforcement actions.
Beginning July 1, 2011, an amnesty program to allow proper registration of previously registered SPCNS went into effect. The program is slated to conclude on June 30, 2012—roughly 16 weeks remain (as of March 12, 2012). For owners who may have misrepresented the value of the vehicle or its model year at initial registration, this law provides a method to obtain legal title/registration.
