View Full Version : confirm please… DMV updates DOJ handgun registrations automatically?

07-17-2010, 2:36 PM
I read this in another post, and wanted to make sure it was accurate:

... anytime you move in CA, when you notify the CA DMV that you've moved the DOJ updates your information for your registration- so there is nothing you need to do.

I am moving from OC to Placer County and want to make sure I don’t screw-up.

Also, would like to get CCW in Placer County ( I didn’t even try here in O.C.Hutchen’sVille), and have not yet purchased my carry piece (plan to get Kimber Ultra II, either Raptor or CDP). Any words of wisdom on this… what not to do?

Thanks much,

how would you screw up? There is no requirement that you "update" your handgun registrations when you move.

AFAIK, the AFS info is linked to your DL#, so any updates to your DL# would probaby automatically update the AFS records automatically. but since there is no requirement that you keep the AFS info up to date, it isn't your screw-up if your AFS address doesn't get updated when you move.
