Hello and thanks so much for choosing this forum to pose your important legal question. I will do my best to give you some honest and accurate guidance as I answer your question.
I hate to sound discouraging, but unfortunately California is a "tough" state when it comes to vehicle impounds. Under California Vehicle Code §22651(o) a vehicle on city streets with an expired registration more than six months and one day can be impounded. The only way it will be released is when you are able to furnish proof of current registration. There is no way around this; I wish I had better news, but that is the truth of the matter.
