retro license plates may make a revival

Retro license plate proposal on the move

California lawmakers can’t roll back gas prices or revive eight-track tape players, but they soon may offer motorists something else from decades past: replica license plates.

Assembly Bill 1658 would allow the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue plates resembling those of the 1950s, through ’80s for a fee – $50 initially, $40 per year – to cover administrative costs and raise money for environmental projects.

Assemblyman Mike Gatto, a Los Angeles Democrat who proposed the bill, said it capitalizes on nostalgia and recent production of retro-style vehicles. “What’s old is new,” he says, “and it might make the state a little money, too.”

Plates would not be issued by the DMV until 7,500 had been ordered by the public. They would come in three classic designs, with black lettering on a yellow background, or yellow lettering on either a black or blue background.

The new plates would not be exact reproductions, however. Current plates have seven digits, for example, while those of decades past had six. Reflectivity and font-type standards also have changed through the decades.

AB 1658 received bipartisan support in the Assembly Transportation Committee, 14-0, and is awaiting action in the Assembly Appropriations Committee.

FTC tips for your red flag rules program ( ITPP )

Are you complying with the Red Flags Rule?

The Red Flags Rule requires many businesses and organizations to implement a written Identity Theft Prevention Program designed to detect the warning signs — or “red flags” — of identity theft in their day-to-day operations. By identifying red flags in advance, businesses will be better equipped to spot suspicious patterns that may arise — and take steps to prevent a red flag from escalating into a costly episode of identity theft.

Resources on this site can help business people educate their staff and colleagues about complying with the Red Flags Rule.

What Compliance Looks Like

Your Identity Theft Prevention Program is a “playbook” that must include reasonable policies and procedures for detecting, preventing, and mitigating identity theft. Your Program should enable your organization to:

  1. identify relevant patterns, practices, and specific forms of activity — the “red flags” — that signal possible identity theft;
  2. incorporate business practices to detect red flags;
  3. detail your appropriate response to any red flags you detect to prevent and mitigate identity theft; and
  4. be updated periodically to reflect changes in risks from identity theft.

The Red Flags Rule also includes guidelines to help financial institutions and creditors develop and implement a Program, including a supplement that offers examples of red flags.

The FTC and the federal financial agencies have issued Frequently Asked Questions and answers to help businesses comply with the Rule.

Who Must Comply with the Red Flags Rule?

The Rule requires “financial institutions” and “creditors” that hold consumer accounts designed to permit multiple payments or transactions — or any other account for which there is a reasonably foreseeable risk of identity theft — to develop and implement an Identity Theft Prevention Program for new and existing accounts. The definition of “financial institution” includes:

  • all banks, savings associations, and credit unions, regardless of whether they hold a transaction account belonging to a consumer; and
  • anyone else who directly or indirectly holds a transaction account belonging to a consumer.

A change in the law on December 18, 2010 amended the the definition of “creditor,” and limits the circumstances under which creditors are covered. The new law covers creditors who regularly, and in the ordinary course of business, meet one of three general criteria. They must:

  • obtain or use consumer reports in connection with a credit transaction;
  • furnish information to consumer reporting agencies in connection with a credit transaction; or
  • advance funds to — or on behalf of — someone, except for funds for expenses incidental to a service provided by the creditor to that person.

Bookmark this site and check it often for revisions that reflect changes in the law.

carfax vs kleenex…..an interesting comparison

KIRKLAND, WA, August 13, 2012 <strong>/24-7PressRelease/</strong> –

For decades, one company has dominated the vehicle history market: CARFAX. With few alternatives available for vehicle history reports, CARFAX gets away with charging as much as $34.99 for a single vehicle history report.

“I just needed to prove that a car I was selling had a clean history, so I scoured the web for a ‘free vehicle history report’”, explains David Wu, “Unfortunately, there was no such thing as free vehicle history, and I felt ripped off when I resorted to paying $30 for a basic report.” After this experience, Wu went on to found VinAudit.com– a vehicle history reporting service offering a radically lower-cost alternative to CARFAX.

Since VinAudit.com’s initial release in early 2012, the service has served thousands of consumers over the Internet in addition to having with a rapidly growing presence in the automotive industry. VinAudit.com and partners of VinAudit.com served as one of the main alternatives to CARFAX providing an approved compliance solution with this new requirement that took effect on July 1st, 2012.

Assembly Bill 1215 required California car dealers to properly disclose vehicle history information before their customers purchase a car. Seeking a low-cost compliance solution, over 500 used car dealers in California have chosen VinAudit.com as their exclusive source for vehicle history reports.

“We’re just getting started,” Wu says optimistically, “One day, vehicle history may even become free.”

VinAudit.com is an approved provider and partner of NMVTIS, a US federal database wherein state DMVs, insurance carriers, junk and salvage sites with other record providers are mandated to report to. The company provides instant Vehicle History Reports that is sent to your email, can be downloaded as PDF file and can be printed. Moreover, they also offer Dealers Program and Resellers Program to the Automotive Industry with great benefits and simple set up. VinAudit.com’s mission is to make Vehicle History for free!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DMV Wants Your Feedback

Department encourages comments, suggestions from customers

Sacramento —In a continuing effort to improve customer service and satisfaction, customers now have the opportunity to rate theirDMV experience by sharing valuable feed back on a new “How are we doing?” web survey page.

“The opinions and suggestions from our customers are the most valuable tools that the DMV can utilize to improve on services,” said DMV Director George Valverde. “We take the opinions of our customers very seriously”

DMV customers are now able to go to the DMV website and choose a service rating from 1 – 10 with an optional comment box designed to share any additional thoughts, suggestions, or compliments. The department will use this data for future consideration in the development of additional customer services.

The DMV has deployed a series of new service options and enhancements with the customer in mind. Last month, the department increased the number of Self Service Terminals (SSTs) to 35 offices around the state where customers can get their registration cards and tags within seconds; in October, DMV launched a new, expanded appointment system that is providing advance appointments in greater numbers and in a more timely manner; in May, customers began receiving the option of a call-back from the department through Virtual Hold; and, DMV deployed Appointment Notify, where customers receive a reminder call three days prior to a scheduled appointment.

These improvements followed DMV’s successful launch of DMV Now, which allows customers with Android and iPhone smart phones to find a local office with real-time wait times and provide turn-by-turn directions based on GPS location, take sample written driving tests, and, access a large library of DMV driver education videos and other important DMV alerts.

Don’t Stand In Line, Go Online! Doing business with the DMV has never been easier. The DMV offers an array of services to customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through its Website (www.dmv.ca.gov), including online appointments for written and drive tests; vehicle registration and driver license renewals, selection of personalized license plates, changes of address and payment of fees via secure debit transactions. Customers can also effect transactions by calling DMV customer service at (800) 777-0133.DMV is a department under the Business, Transportation and Housing Agency.

got broker ???…..get louie bookout…..CBS

Los Angeles is filled with the world’s most fascinating jobs. It is the mecca of the entertainment industry where you can find yourself at a bar having a drink next to some really interesting people. From models to aspiring actors, musicians, agents, chauffeurs, personal assistants, all provide the backdrop to amazing stories. There is one person that truly has the most interesting job. Meet Louie Bookout.

 

Louie Bookout of Celebrity Business Services

Starting Small but Dreaming Big

Most people first met Louie Bookout on Bravo’s Million Dollar Listings when he delivered a Mercedes to the house of celebrity Real Estate Broker Chad Rogers. What most viewers didn’t know is that Louie Bookout has been providing elite Los Angeleans hard-to-find luxury cars for years.

Bookout began his company, Celebrity Business Services, 17 years ago. Celebrity Business Services is a thriving private car dealer in a world where the words car dealer and thriving are almost never used in the same sentence. It has been nearly 30 years since Bookout came to Los Angeles to make some quick money in order to get another business started. He left the business for a short time, only to return when he realized he loved working in the car industry. Bookout began his auto sales career working at a Mercedes dealership. He started as a sales representative, moved on to sales manager, then was in line for a general manager. He dreamed of owning his own dealership someday.

One of the buyers at Bookout’s dealership was an auto broker, meaning he was a middle man between the dealership and car buyers. Many of the broker’s clients were in the entertainment industry. Bookout noticed this man did not always seem happy, and was many times very grumpy. Even while grumpy, he still managed to sell 20 cars per month. “He was selling 20 cars a month, I figured that if I was doing the same thing, with a better attitude, I could sell 40 cars a month.” Today, in the midst of a tough economy, Bookout is doing just that. He estimates he sells approximately 40 to 50 cars per month. The cars he provides range from MercedesBMWs, and Bentleys, toRolls-Royce and Range Rovers. His clients are generally in the entertainment industry, from actors and actresses to agents, business managers, and accountants to the stars. It is safe to assume that Bookout’s rolodex is a who’s who of Hollywood’s Power Players.

Servicing Hollywood’s A-List

With that kind of client list, one would expect not to have many headaches over business. And there aren’t. “Many of my clients have business managers or accountants that handle where the money is going. The biggest hurdles are when I get a referral from one of my clients and the new client isn’t as established and they don’t have handlers yet. They still handle all of there own financial responsibilities. Many times those people don’t use me the way they need to.” Bookout looks out for his clients’ best interests. He will give them advice to help figure out what is the best deal for them. He also looks out for his relationships and his client list is very private. He guards that list like a lion and won’t dish any celebrity dirt. The only way to know if a person is a client of Bookout’s is if the car has his customized logo of a B with wings attached on the license plate holder. In one way he has built a brand, but also an elite club that few have access to.

No Advertising Necessary

From his first client to today, Louie still has never done any advertising or marketing. You won’t find a web site containing information about Celebrity Buying Services. You  won’t even find his office hours posted anywhere because he doesn’t have specific times that he works. Everything is word of mouth. He estimates that his retention rate is approximately 85%. It is the “Louie process” that sells. Clients simply call and request the type of car that they want. They may tell him certain options they prefer, whether or not they exist. From there Bookout handles everything. He finds the car whether it is in Los Angeles, or Cleveland, and coaches his clients on cost and financing options. He handles all of the paperwork, and in the end, delivers the car to their home or office. All of this service at no additional cost to his customer. For that he relies on his relationships with the dealerships.

There are only a handful of private car dealers such as Louie’s Bookout’s Celebrity Buying Services and Bookout is the only one who sells nationwide. While he calls Los Angeles home, he has clients in New York, Miami, Tennessee, and is even making a name for himself with elite casino executives in Las Vegas.

Bookout feels blessed with the success that Celebrity Buying Services has had and has maintained over a 17 year period. He knows he is fortunate that he doesn’t have to wake up and go to a dealership every morning. “The world is my dealership” is what Bookout says. He can research and get information over the internet. With technology today, all that is needed is a cell phone, fax machine, and the internet. The biggest reason for his success is because he has followed the path of doing what he loves. “Do what you love to do.

In the past year the wholesale auto industry has undergone many changes in the way we are regulated within the State of Indiana. Up to this point, certain codes have not been enforced. For example:

  • Your license and plates not being renewed for not selling 120 vehicles
  • An audit being conducted for losing or your dealer plate being stolen
  • Maximum fines up to $5000 per incident

Now these codes are strictly being enforced and not to mention the astronomical fines that come along with non-compliance. It has finally come to a point that something needs to be done to protect our livelihoods.

The IN-AWA was formed due to the changes that have taken place. Collectively we will make the changes to better our industry and we will be heard. Currently we have a lobbyist and legal counsel working on making these changes but no one person can do this alone.

We are asking for your help in achieving these changes. If we do not join as one voice, the possibility stands that this industry will dissipate. We need to align so that the positive change we need will be made.
