Ask a Traffic Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I was hoping to catch you online so we could attack this problem live. I am a licensed attorney and will be working on your question. Give me a little time to do a bit of research to see what I can find and I will return.
Looking at Nevada DMV law on registering here: http://www.dmvnv.com/nvreg.htm#residency It's clear that while you ay not be a resident, nonresidents who spend more than 30 days in Nevada per year are required to register in Nevada even though nonresidents usually are not required to do so. The requirement of a seasonal permit is right there in the DMV law that I cited and excepts seasonal residents, requring that they register the same as residents. With your facts, no apparent facts which would create an exception apply. You're lucky this didn't happen sooner. But now that you know the law you can protect yourself because it can get very expensive ($1,000 fine).
I'm sorry I couldn't give you good news-I hope you don't hold it against me but I have to tell it to you like it is.

Like I stated in my question it is not a problem registering my vehicle in nv. Would I have to change my ca. license to a nv. license, in order to register the vehicle? If I can keep my ca. license, what would happen if the ca. police would stop me during my time in ca.?
What is required for seasonal resident status?
Thanks I think I rated the wrong guy the rating should go to you.
