The DMV here in CT is so crooked they arn't even allowed to print divers licenses on site anymore. When you renew your license you get a new one sent in the mail. They have been busted a few times selling "real" fake IDs.

The new licenses are printed offsite as a part of the Homeland Security Real ID program. It's forced by the feds. State has nothing to say about it.

Isn't that already allowed, per § 5004.1 (a)(1)?

An owner of a vehicle that is a 1980 or older model-year vehicle may, after the requirements for the registration of the vehicle are complied with and with the approval of the department, utilize license plates of this state with the date of year corresponding to the model-year date when the vehicle was manufactured, if the model-year date license plate is legible and serviceable, as determined by the department, in lieu of the license plates otherwise required by this code.


Or is that only if you don't register it as an historic vehicle?

Correct. If a person has a vehicle with newer plates, or brings a vehicle from out of state and has, or obtains plates from the year manufactured they can be used instead of new plates.
I should clarify to be complete. Historic vehicles get the state issued plates and pay the same registration fee as a non historic vehicle. Frequently historic vehicles and collector cars are driven far fewer miles per year than "regular" transportation cars. The historic vehicles are often only driven to ehows or gatherings.
It would be nice for historic vehicles with original issued plates, AND also all other historic vehicles to be charged a decreased registration fee. Every ehicle I register now is charged more than $100, save for permanent trailers which have no fee.
So it's two prong: Decreased fee for historic vehicles (determined by DMV) displaying either original issued, or state issued historic vehicle (and also horseless carriage) plates. Yes, horseless carriages hav to pay registration fees here.

I'd go back to DMV, report the front plate as stolen, pay $10 or whatever, and get new plates and tags. That'll be a nice surprise for the person with the other plate.

So my daughter found out that they are correct in giving her one plate for now. She didn't tell me they ordered personalized plates as it was a surprise to me and in the interim while those are begin made they only give you one plate for the rear. Then when you get the new plates they will give you two. The personalized plate she ordered is "MPM1957" in acknowledgement of the my MPM car club. Thought that was pretty cool of her to do! up

I ordered a personal plate about 5 months ago. I picked them up 2 months later and received 2. They did not give me any temporary plate. Ca law says that you need a plate for the front and the rear.

Cal law actually says that you have to display two plates if you're issued two; if DMV only issues you one, that's all you need. Wonder if LEOs know that? work

https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/...&part=&chapter=1.&article=9.

Quote
5200 (a) When two license plates are issued by the department for use upon a vehicle, they shall be attached to the vehicle for which they were issued, one in the front and the other in the rear.
(b) When only one license plate is issued for use upon a vehicle, it shall be attached to the rear thereof, unless the license plate is issued for use upon a truck tractor, in which case the license plate shall be displayed in accordance with Section 4850.5.
(Amended by Stats. 2003, Ch. 594, Sec. 27. Effective January 1, 2004.)]

AFAIK, the one plate only refers to big trucks where the rear is obscured by a trailer

Maybe so, but the statute seems to specifically exclude "truck tractors." All I know about CA law is what I read on the Internet, and I couldn't find any explanation. Guessing that it covers the situation in Stu's OP, where the plate is temporary, though couldn't find anything online that spelled it out. In SC, all we need is the one plate on the back--though drive around here long enough and you'll begin to think that even that one may be optional. rolleyes
