Can I register my car in California if the back door window is busted out?

Asked by shammie (64points) October 21st, 2011

I need to re-register my car in California and I have it all ready, but am not sure if it will pass some inspection if the back door passenger side window is busted out. I simply have not fixed it yet. Do I need to wait to re-register(I am going to the DMV myself, not via mail/internet) until after the window is fixed to save a trip?

The inspection does not cover that. You should be able to register it just fine.

As long as it passes smog you’re good to go.

There are few states that care about anything other than emissions. I believe California is one it’s those states that doesn’t care about anything other than what comes out of your tailpipe, so you should be fine.

Just clean it up and pretend the window is down if it does matter . . . California has screwed over their DMV workers so bad in the past couple years that I doubt they are incentivized enough to ask you to roll your window up (if it did matter).

I went to the Cali DMV when all the suckness started in 2008 and my birth certificate was laminated b/c my mom decided that was a bright idea back in the day.

After waiting in line for three hours, and witnessing two men fight over a spot in line (when it was obvious that one of them just walked up and cut), a DMV lady was like “sorry, can’t accept it, it’s laminated.” I was like “please, I just spent 3 hours in line, PLEASE” and she ignored me. . . . the lady in the cube next to her said, “come here honey, they just gave us a paycut right after they cut our hours, I’LL take your birth certificate,” and I got my license and was on my way!!!
