Notify calif DMV that you removed the vehicle out of state. Instructions are on the back of every registration.. On Feb 25,2015 the calif DMV (without notice ) removed $691 and $125 legal fee from my savings acct. After two calls I was informed that it was for a vehicle that I moved to Oregon in 2003- 12 years ago! When I arrived in Oregon, I had the truck registered and licensed at the Oregon DMV. I thought it was done. Wrong! I was able to get the $691 refunded but they would not refund the legal fee because I did not inform the DMV that the truck left the state. If you know anyone that moved out of the peoples republic, I suggest you warn them.
