Do you wish you could go to the Department of Motor Vehicles and be in and out in less than five minutes? Express Registration Services can make that possible.
For the people that don’t have time to go to the DMV or just hate going there, Express Registration Services can make life a lot easier.
“It’s an in and out process. If it’s not busy and I only have like one or two clients, the most you could wait is no more than five minutes,” said owner Nancy Salazar.
Salazar’s office provides a lot of the same functions as the DMV, but it is far from it.
“I do vehicle registrations, renewals, I give tags from here, plates, right away. I’ll transfer your vehicle and give you stickers. Everything from [my office.] I do have a service fee though, $40 for a transfer and $29 for a renewal,” she explained.
“There’s some paperwork I can’t do like lean sales and salvage vehicles that I would have to take in for the following day, but it doesn’t take more than a day or two to give you your paperwork back,” she continued.
Salazar has owned Express Registration Services for eight years. She got the idea for her business from visiting Los Angeles.
Registration Services are extremely prominent there and she knew it wasn’t a standard business practice in Bakersfield, so she had a feeling it could be marketable.
Salazar emphasizes that she doesn’t work for the DMV, but she does work with them.
She goes to a location that is an industry for registration services and dealers. Her clientele ranges from walk-ins, dealerships, oil companies and so forth.
Some states don’t have a DMV, so they have no choice but to go to a registration service.
“This place is for the people that don’t like the DMV, don’t want the hassle or if they don’t know how to fill out forms. This service can be really awesome for you. You’re in and out. You wish you could go to the DMV and be out of there in less than five minutes”
Express Registration Services is located at 514 Chester Ave.
It is open Monday-Friday from 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m. and on Saturdays 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m.
