A friend of mine just bought a Solectria pickup from PA and was told
he had to have an inspection to license it in the state of Washington.
Here is his email to me:

"The vehicle does not have a current license. I went to DMV yesterday
to try to license it. They are going to require a State Police
inspection because it is an electric vehicle. The secretary who
schedules those won/t be available until Wednesday, and the officer I
talked to by phone said there is a several week wait for an
inspection; therefore, it appears it could be a month or more before I
can drive it off of my property. It does run, and it appears it
accepted a full charge. I find it a little frustrating that they are
going to require an inspection because it is not gas or diesel. The
person we had at the county clerks office indicated that many hybrids
have to have state inspections if they come from out of state. I don't
know what is going on. We purchased a Previa from OR and a highlander
hybrid from NJ last year and licensed them without inspections."

Anyone heard of this before. The vehicle he bought is this one:

Ask for a temporary moving permit so you can take it to get repairs and get
inspected. I don't know about your state, In California it used to be only 1
day, but here in Utah I think you can get one for a month just for asking.

Hi David,
I own an EV in Washington. It is conversion of an old 87 Nissan pickup. I
had a real runaround when it came to find out if I needed to get it
inspected. Finally I got hold of the actual inspector in Puyallup who said I
did not need to get to get my conversion inspected as long as I did not
change the body. I think you should just check into what are the rules for
registering a vehicle that was registered in another state. If you are in
one of the counties that require exhaust tests you may have to get it
inspected. I live in Thurston Co. so don't have to bother about this.

Good evening David, I too had to have a state inspection. One reason was I did not have a title. But was required to have a Bill of Sale. The other reason is that you are bringing this car in from out of state. It is my understanding that all cars brought in from out of state require an inspection? I will say that it is not one to be worried about. Take it in and be done with it. Al www.evalbum.com/2430

When I moved to WA in 94 I was required to get an 'inspection' to register my truck that had a valid ME registration.

All they did was check that the various VIN numbers matched. That and because it was a truck I had to get it weighed.

Now it's an ev.

No direct experience with Washington laws, but it is very typical for some
sort of check when moving vehicles from one state to another. In Idaho, the
"inspection" is only verifying that the VIN matches the title. I'm
presuming this is mainly to combat stolen car operations.

However, that is typically done at DMV, when you go to register the new car
by the agent stepping outside and checking the VIN while you wait.

In Idaho, there was absolutely no issue caused by the EV conversion at DMV.
I think I actually succeeded in getting the emissions check waived too.
Getting it insured was actually the hardest part.

This came about in the early 1900's after all divers were required to

Yup. It was free before and then in the 1900s it become a government issued
privilege. Thanks big daddy government......I love driving my EV....not
paying road taxes from Gasoline but rather paying "socialital benefit
charges" every month on my Electric Bill!!! That is why, we in NJ pay the
6th highest electrical rates in the country!!!

You can drive your vehicle all you want unlicensed on your (or someone
else's) private property. But not on public roads unless it is
generally low speed (bicycle, tractor, horse-n-buggy, NEV, eBicycle).

Once you realize that you (and everybody else) is driving a 2-4 ton
potential weapon...

But it is ironic that a horse and buggy has more road rights than NEV's
in many states (at least in the MidWest).

Exactly....I let my kids drive my EV around my yard and on my Private
Road!!! PRIVATE!!!! That is odd that horse's and buggy's have more rights
than NEVs..... I think the horse and buggy is faster as well.

Tom is right. I licensed the Ohm Ranger without an inspection, although when
I initially transferred the title they told me it would need to be
inspected. But when I went to get the 3-day trip permit for the inspection
drive, they said no inspection required since it had not been out of
Washington. Hadn't been licensed for the past 3 years either. They could
not, however, change the power class from "g" (gas) to "e" (electric)
without an inspection. And if you live in an emissions test county, you
would need to get a permanent exemption from emissions tests, which would
require an inspection.
