Hey Gang,
I just moved here and am in the process of re-registering my S10 with the DMV. But they want me to get a weight certificate first from an authorized California weighmaster.
****?
Naturally, the person I was speaking with at the DMV could offer no assistance on where to go to get this mythical certificate.
So I was hoping someone here could help me out. Have you gotten your vehichle weighed? If so, where?
Any help is appreciated.

Out of state commercial vehicle being registered in Caulifornia, you need a weight certificate. You can get a certificate at any public scale such as at any truck stop.

A lot of companies like moving companies maintain scales at their places of business.

This is the best site I've found for weigh stations. There are several in each county I believe:

I bought a VW bus without the backseats, and had to go through a truckstop scale to get it weighed for getting it registered.
I had an 11 meter rig (CB) in the bus, and was listening to all the truck Drivers saying "what the hell"?

My truck got totaled by the insurance co. because it would cost more to fix than what it's worth, so I salvaged it with them. What a hassel! One of the many things dmv has me doing is getting a cert. from an authorized ca weighmaster. I'm the same owner since 2001, nothing has changed as far as ownership goes, but the paperwork dmv goes through and the cost of all this is just crazy.

Dan's Feed and Seed in Temecula CA does the weight certification AND they only charge 10 bucks. Hope that helps out anyone who isn't in L.A. Or San Diego! Ridiculous that they only have those two listed.

I hope the California DMV doesn't say that my '78 Ford Econoline E-150 camper van is a "commercial vehicle."

they charge you more for your registration depending on weight of your truck and it's tiered. take everything off of your truck that u can and empty the gas tank.

I did just that! Moron said they can't accept that because I might have altered the vehicle.

Pick up trucks are considered commercial vehicles in this State. That may be the reason for requesting the certs. The problem is anyone with an IQ past the 4th grade would know that vehicle is considered a mid-sized pick up.

Welcome to California the Sunshine State run by Morons
Out of state vehicles or first time registration of vehicles in California coming from another state weather its commercial or personal vehicle, need this certificate so they know how much to tax you. I am going through this right now with my ford focus that has always been registered in cali, but since my registration is so past due, it dropped my car from the data base, so now they are treating it as an out of state vehicle. Ugh!

Put a bed cover on it and then you can have DMV inspect it and they can no longer charge you for a "commercial vehicle" becuase it can't be used to haul. Saves you a little $.
ctually they can just tried to register my dodge dakota with a cover on it and wanted to charge me 128 before registration fees... I said it should be considered a passenger car because I can haul anything, idiot there says no it can be removed so u have to have a weight certificate

Try that and the worthless humanoid told me she needs to see it and have it in her hand. The van i am trying to register is new and she said they weighted the truck in another state and she needs one from california. RUFKM the weight does not change just because you bringh it from
Arizona to cali. This people are idiots and one knows more than the other and the person next to them
Knows more than them dont they have to take the same classes and know the same and everything require to do a proper job. F!!!!!!!
