On 2/02/14, my wife purchased a new motorcycle, a V-Star 1300 Deluxe. We wanted to transfer the tag from her old bike, but because it wasn't sold yet, they wouldn't let us. When adding the new bike on our insurance, I canceled the insurance on the old bike, and told my wife to hurry and mail the tag in. Well, we had a couple snow storms came through, and my wife dilly-dallied about mailing the tag back, and didn't get to returning it until 2/18/14. Five-six weeks later we get a letter from the MVA saying we owe $150 for keeping a tag for a vehicle that has no insurance. To me, this is ridiculous. It was all of 2 weeks, I'm sure this fee is designed for people that intentionally cancel insurance and keep the tag simply because they don't want to pay for insurance. It's only $40 a year for the old bike, a '98 Honda Shadow. I called the MVA and the lady claims that unless I can get the buyer to fax them a letter saying that we sold the bike within 3 days of the date of cancellation, we owe the $150. We didn't actually sell the bike until the 20th. The letter says that for the first 30 days, the fee is $150, then $7 a day after that. I was thinking of going to the main branch in Glen Burnie and speaking to a supervisor but it might be a waste of time......
