11.11 Dealer Bundle Listing
The FO 247 Forms
The DMV provides dealers Transmittal of Registration Applications (FO 247)
forms for listing registration applications submitted to the DMV. This provides
dealers and the DMV a means of tracking multiple applications. Dealers may
process up to 5 applications at any one time without listing them on the
FO 247 using the appointment system at your local DMV office.
FO 247 forms can be found at
Duplicate and Triplicate - Receipts
The FO 247 must be submitted in duplicate, but can be prepared in triplicate
if the dealer would like a receipt. DMV keeps the original and returns the
duplicate after the applications have been processed. DMV prefers a separate
check for each transmittal.
When filling out the FO 247, you may use two lines, if necessary, instead
of scrunching all of the information onto one line. Accuracy, neatness,
and clarity are vital on these forms.
You can also note on the FO 247 when you are just posting fees for a particular
“Credit” or “Refund”
Check “credit” or “refund” (of excess fees) on the
F) 247 so the DMV knows whether to credit any excess amount paid or to refund
you the excess. Note that this applies to the entire bundle. Also, make
sure than if DMV refunds the excess fees that you, in turn, refund those
excess fees to the buyer that paid them in the first place.
For Pick Up or Mailing
When submitting the FO 247, indicate if the completed work is to be picked
up in person or mailed to the dealership. Plates, reg. cards and stickers
will be mailed to the registered owner directly from Sacramento unless otherwise
specified in the application.
When DMV receives the bundles they will
- enter the date received;
- verify the number of applications received; and
- assign a “bundle number” so that it can be tracked.
- Administrative Service Fees (“ASF”)
After DMV has processed and cashiered the application a copy of the transmittal
and any returned (RDF) items are returned to the dealer. Any ASF information
will appear on the transmittal.
