A confession: I don't like to register my cars! It's such a hassle. Well, I got a ticket (actually a few) about a month ago for expired registration. My registration was out-of-state and expired as of February 2007 (1 year and 7 months). Before that, when I had my truck, the registration was also expired for a duration even longer. I guess I figure, that if I get pulled over, they'll give me a fix-it ticket, then I'll have to update it. Well that happened. So, I registered my car for the state of New Mexico for a duration of 2 years--the longest time available. It cost me $250 for out-of-state title transfer, VIN verification, emissions test, and actual registration. So, now I'm legit.
