  •  depends on the state, johnny. if I have a (4+ / 0-)

    registered vehicle in CA and decide not to drive it, I HAVE to non-op it. Yes, it could be driven on private property (my own), but other wise (with some exceptions for farm vehicles) the vehicle must be properly registered.

    These laws must vary state to state.

      that saves you money from having to re-register it, but you do not have to register a car in CA if you're not on public roads.

        section 3000 of the vehicle code:

          listed at page bottom). If a vehicle is STORED (which also means parked in your own garage, it STILL has to be non-op OR registered. There ARE exceptions for some historical vehicles and some others, but these ARE the exception to the rule).

          Here.
