When they inspect the car at the DMV do they care about your tint percentage and lack of front license plate, etc.? What exactly do they do when they inspect it?

Read my Yelp reviews for more info below on where to go. Where exactly in the Bay Area are you located?

I've had my car for almost 3 weeks now and the stupid-ass DMV folks wanted to see a copy of my sales contract before they could release the registration to my Credit Union rep. My rep has already presented to them the Smog test certificate, MSO, VIN Verification, but they're being stupid and asking for more information than what's really required.

He's trying again tomorrow to provide them with this info so that he can finally get my sticker/plates the same day at that DMV location. In the meantime, they game me one of those temporary papers with the number in large font that you stick on the window. It's good for 30 days of driving without the registration/sticker while it's still being processed.
Thanks for your post. I got my car yesterday and went to Shar to do the registration and Sunnyvale discount smog to smog the car today. Everything is smooth. Shar is able to do all the DMV work for me so that I don't have to go to DMV to experience the infamous DMV wait time during this pandemic time.
