hi don julio,

Between shuffleboard and DMV, it seems you are in a panic! Lol.

Seriously, the issue of the use of facilities is far from the concerns that you express. The pools in particular get serious use and there are folks who live to golf here. I do think that the heat, change in popularity of certain outdoor games, and a newer crop of CVers has changed certain activity interests. Also, I believe the Village has suffered from the sedentary lifestyle across America, but pretty bad locally, in all but the youngest.

As for DMV, I would start with getting valid plates where you are and a driver's license for your wife if her LA one isn't valid anymore. It wiil probably be easier to transfer. Given this State's location, you two could hardly be the first case of dealing with this across the border stuff. Good luck.

This is kind of scary reading for me. I will be moving to CV in about a month and a half. I went on-line and read much of Arkansas DMV stuff about getting drivers licenses and it didn’t sound all that bad. I don’t remember reading about re-plating the car though. Here is where I am right now:

I have a current Mexico driver’s license

Wife has a cancelled Louisiana DL because when we moved we dropped our insurance

Car has expired Louisiana plates because it doesn’t matter in Mexico if U.S. plates are expired as long as you have insurance you are ok. DL doesn’t matter much either.

Come to think about it, not much matters in Mexico if you have a couple hundred peso’s in your pocket.

Anyway, anybody see any problems getting our car plated and DL’s renewed?

You think it may be better if we claim illegal alien status and say “no comprendo” a lot? I think we could end up with health insurance, food stamps, maybe a place to live, welfare check and all the other goodies a real American can’t get. We could ask for political asylum, as we don’t agree with Mexican politics and feel persecuted. We will cleverly leave out the part about us feeling the same way about the U.S.

Transferring from one state to another is a nightmare in every state. One of life's not fun pleasures.

I've consulted the DMV rule book and frankly I have never in my life seen anything requiring so much documentation or multiple players and moving parts as this process for registering a car from out of State. It makes the Federal tax code look like child's play. All of this complexity is simply in the service of taxing personal property. There has to be a better way. Trout, what's the process in nearby Tenn?

You just get tags once, right? What do you mean assessed each year? This really is odd.

no, value is based on a computerize list that the state maintains of vehicle values based on year and make model. You still have to pay AR tax when you register it for the first time. Now transferring is a different story you have already paid the tax in the state you bought it so you are just transferring/registering it for the first time in AR. You must have the vehicle assesed before you get your tags.and reassest each year after before getting your new tags.

Hi Forum,

If a person buys a new car in AR, how is the value of the car hamdled by DMV? If you buy it out of state is out different?
