Truck Tags-Virginia?

Can anyone actually tell me if I need Truck tags on my 250, very nice lady at the dmv could not even tell me and I am tired of paying taxes if I do not have to. EW is 7242, GVWR is 10000

No you don't. The trouble is finding the right clerk that's smart enough to figure out what you're trying to do. It took me 2 different DMV's and 3 clerks. And I got lucky that the last clerk had just done this on her husband's truck. They'll warn the #### out of you about getting pulled over and weighed by state cops. Just keep telling them you never tow anything and it's a 100% personal vehicle.

I want to say DMV online won't let you reclassify your vehicle. At least it wouldn't last year. Give it a shot though.

Re: Truck Tags-Virginia?

The only benefit that I know of is that if your truck is classified over 7500 lbs and eligible for truck tags, your front and rear bumpers are allowed to be an inch higher than vehicles under 7500lbs.

Virginia State Police - Safety Division

Unfortunately if you do have truck tags you are not eligible for property tax relief.

But if you do tow and get caught it is a nice fine. Oh and if your mil you pay no tax.

Re: Truck Tags-Virginia?

Do they still apply taxes if your spouse is on the title as well??

I know they have change the "requirement" for spouses to change over to VA driver's licenses.

Re: Truck Tags-Virginia?

We didn't on the 2011 vw. I just sent an LES. And the truck I also just send an LES. oh and asked my DOT trooper buddy bout truck tags. Pretty much if you tow a lot you should get them just because some guys will check. But guys just towing once in a while can "risk" it.
