Default Year 2 of ownership, Tags and Tax Credit question....

I am now in year 2 of ownership with my Emerge E2. I purchased it in 2009 and received my tax credit in 2010.

My registration is up and I need to get my cart inspected now in order to renew my registration. There are no shops near me that will inspect my Emerge (where I could drive my Emerge to). My only option would be to trailer it to a shop, and that is not an attractive option to me.

So, I am considering just turning my plates in (since I dont drive it outside of my neighborhood too often). In 15 months of ownership, I have never been questioned by local police about my tags,insurance, etc....

My question is, does anyone know if the Tax Credit had any rules requiring me to keep my Emerge registered for a certain amount of years?

Interested to hear this answer myself. I was under the assumption that for the credit, you had to keep it tagged and inspected for 3 years? Too many stories and "interpretations" on this one for me to chime in...

From what I have read, the tax credit doesn't require you to license the cart only to have the title and documentation registered with the state.
IMO, there are no restrictions on the time period of ownership required before selling.

Wow I find it strange they want to inspect it...I thought they only really cared about emissions testing which doesn't really apply here. Have you actually asked your tax collectors office what your options are considering it is not possible to get the vehicle to an inspection station?

In North Carolina, the inspection is not smog, it is a safety inspection and includes:
* brakes
* lights
* horns
* steering mechanism
* windshield wipers
* turn signals
* tires
* rear view mirrors
* exhaust system
* window tint

He didn't say it was not possible, just that he preferred not to trailer it.

It just seems unreasonable to force people to rent a trailer, and in some situations a truck to tow it with, each year just to renew their registration. One would think there would be an exception or the availability of a mobile inspection in situations such as these. Never hurts to ask, I'm sure they have gotten stranger questions.

In order to renew my registration, I need to have a saftey inspection (listed in an earlier post).

My options (as explained to me) are that I could tow it, trailer it, etc.. since I can not get to an inspection station without driving on roads that exceed 35mph.

I am not overly concerned with having tags on my Emerge since I rarely drive it in an area where I would be stopped by police. It would just be easier for me to turn my tags in (assuming that does not have a negative impact on the tax credit I received).

Thanks for the input everyone

Well screw that...if you're gonna have to trailer it in EVERY YEAR I'd do the same and just run it with no tags. Good luck and hopefully you don't get stopped!
