Interesting.  Here (state of Washington, USA) you just don't renew
the license
tabs.  It stays in the state's computers for something
like 10 years.  When
you're ready to put it on the road you go in
to the County Auditor's office
and get new tabs.  If it's not in
the computer anymore, you have to present
the title or some other
physical proof of ownership. Tabs are renewed one year
at a time,
so there's no way to save anything for taking the car off the road
for anything less than a year.

scam our money-grubbers haven't thought of yet!  If
the car isn't traveling
under its own power, it doesn't need
current plates.  But you guys have a lot
more spy cameras than
we do.  I'm sure we're catching up, however.
