That raises one critical point - choose the right MOT office. I try to use smaller out of the way offices, finding them much more helpful and understanding of the 'it's been in the shed for 20 years' stories.

I did one that was almost that easy too!!! Except I had to go to city hall, and get a notery to sign for me. The key to making everything easy, is to pick up a bike which has not been registered for at least 2 years. You fill out your affivit stating that you bought the bike 2 years ago (or more) with the frame, and engine numbers. You lost the reciept, blablah, and now you want get an ownership in your name. My bike hadn't been registered in 10 yrs. I had an ownership for that old bike, in my name, in minutes!!! In Kitchener, go to the Krug street office. They are open till 1 on Saturdays (but can be busy) They now have a notery on staff. Stay away from the Davenport office in Waterloo!!! Those biatches think they know it all, and will be a pain in the ass!Hoser said:I registered a Jensen-Healey for $10. No ownership. No receipt. No problem.
I brought the VIN with me to a license office in Barrie that had a Notary public on staff. Told her that I had paid for the car from the previous owner, and had stored the car for two years. Told her that the owner was nowhere to be found, no forwarding address. Gave her the last known address. Before you ask he had lost the ownership. Apparently satisfied with my story I was told to raise my right hand and swear out an affadavit testifying to the truth of my story. 5 minutes later I had an ownership and a UVIP.
BTW the license office in Alliston Ontario is very helpful as well, I highly recommend them.

All I got is a signed piece of paper transferring ownership and a biz card of previous owner before that(salvage yard). So at this point I need to record all parts cost, make a list, swear it's true, get it legally signed then go to the Ministry of Transportation to get proper ownership?
Tim said:If your bike doesn't have a previous Ontario title, and doesn't show up in a UVIP search (which you can do online now) then you need the affadavit notarized saying you bought it from so and so for so much. That's it, and the MTO will then do the same VIN search you did, find nothing, and create a title for you.
