    Vehicle Registration Requirements & Information

    Vehicle Registration Summary:

    Information about the cost of new car tags/vehicle registration can be found by clicking on your state. Find out if you’ll receive a temporary license plate/temporary tags while you wait for your permanent registration to arrive. You may find that your state offers a vehicle registration fee calculator to make it easy to determine your total registration cost.

    Vehicle Registration

    After you buy a car, you’ll need to register it with your local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), Secretary of State (SOS), Department of Revenue (DOR), Motor Vehicle Division (MVD), or other local entity that sets vehicle regulations in your state. If someone is asking for your vehicle registration number, they are probably referring to your Vehicle Identification (VIN) number.

    Before you can register your car, your vehicle will likely need to:

    • Have a title in your name.
    • Pass an emissions test or smog check

    Reviews of the Best Touring Bicycles

    bicycles cartoon
    When it comes to buying a touring bicycle, most local bike shops will have only one or two models on the floor, if any. It isn’t that they don’t want to sell a high-quality touring bicycle, it is more an issue of economics and what price range the average person comes in the store to buy.

    If you go into a local bike store, the price of most bicycles will start around $300 and go to over $1,500 for higher-end racing bicycles and mountain bikes. Most of the bicycles you will see will be in the $500 to $600 range. Unfortunately, a new, high-quality touring bicycle will usually have a price tag of $1,000 or more. And many of the expedition bicycles that can handle almost any touring terrain will start at $2,000 and go up from there.

    When considering a new touring bicycle, I use the following selection criteria:

    Home – PMBC


    The Phoenix Metro Bicycle Club is a non-profit social organization that leads regularly scheduled weekly bicycle rides and other special events for the benefit of its members.  We promote and provide venues for safe and legal bicycling, primarily in the greater Phoenix, Arizona metropolitan area.

    Based on advice from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), we are recommending that everyone practice social distancing and avoid the risk of physical injury when our health care system is at or nearing capacity due to the coronavirus pandemic. For this reason we are suspending the Club’s weekly rides and social activities until the health emergency passes. Thank you for your understanding. At such time as the CDC and Arizona’s governor have declared it safe to resume normal ride schedules, the PMBC Board plans to meet to schedule the resumption of Club activities.

    Our Club’s insurance policies only cover riders and ride
