license plate renewal

After getting my trucks plate form the dealer, after buying it in Feb. I get the plate in and it expires this month, I asked them if the only issued a 6 month plate or wtf. Well They are telling me that In Louisiana, the plate is only good for 1 year because of the weight of the truck, This is an 08 250, I just renewed my 99 250 and its a 4 yr. tag. How is it in other states? both trucks are close to the same weight. i don't understand the new Law.

Depends on how the laws in LA are written, there's a few states that over XXK GVWR it takes commercial plates, which follow different rules. For example VA my 13K GVWR gets truck plates, when I get transferred to CT I must get Commerical plates. (thier limit is 10K GVWR). There is a huge difference in GVWR's between the '99 and '08, although the curb wieghts remained about the same.

The '08 should have a higher payload, and should have a higher GVWR. That could be what's putting you in a different class of registration.

the 99 gvw is 8800......the 2008 is 10,000. your pay load depends on the config of a truck...a reg cab 2 wheel drive will carry a bigger payload compared to a 4door 4 wheel drive.....but whats that got to do with your tags running out after 6 mos? if you bought out the door tax and tags price and they only gave you 6 months on the tags you were cheated.

I am taking this is a used truck seeing itís a 2008.

In Arizona purchasing a new truck one can purchase up to 5 years seeing you do not have to go to emissions testing the first 5 years.

Now if one purchases a truck and only 6 months were left on the plates on the truck then after 6 months one would need to renew them.

In CA, our tags are due every year with a *diesel "Smoke" test every other year. Unlike AZ, there is no "diesel engine" grace period like gassers get.

* - They plug into the OBDII port, do a 'visual inspection' to make sure the stuff that is supposed to be there is and then the 'smoke' test to make sure it isn't smoking too much or too long.

Your luckey just every 2 years. It is every year for diesels. Gassers go onto a 2 year inspection & plates.

The new all electric can do the 5 year deal.

SHHHHHHH - QUIET!!!!

With the way our state budget is over here, all we'd need is to have them start once-a-year testing.
