Consumers May Be Driving Cars Without Proper Paperwork

The Department of Motor Vehicles says some people who bought cars in the last six months may be driving around without valid titles and registrations.

Bill Seymour of the DMV says the department had received a variety of complaints about Bernardo Motors on State Street in Hamden,  and revoked the dealership’s license after finding that the company owed more than $200,000 in state sales tax.

He says the DMV does not know how many unregistered cars sold by the dealership may be on the road,  but warns that those drivers are operating illegally,  may not be insured in case of accident, and won’t be able to sell the cars.

DMV is asking anyone who purchased a car from Bernardo Motors to call the department’s consumer line, (860)263-5405.
