Since 1999 we have partnered with the DMV Business Partner Automation Program – BPA and we issue California vehicle license plates, stickers and registrations. In 2003 we were one of six registration services chosen by the DMV to participate in a special IRP PILOT program. Finally in 2011 we entered into the Bonded Web User - BWU program; allowing us to issue INTERSTATE Apportioned Plates, stickers and cab card registrations the same day “ON THE SPOT.”

Auditors are looking for ODOMETER READINGS, please keep odometer reading for all vehicles and all trips, and as far back as Prior four years (if your company has been established since that date!) State Audits are on the increase, so please keep your records organized.
