    I bought a scooter on-line and can’t get it insured because the VIN is not in the system. It’s as if it was never made. I’ve tried to resolve this with the company I bought it from but they are incompetent and unhelpful. Is there any way to register with the DMV without their assistance?

      Assuming it’s a legitimate manufacturer and you have something like an MCO (manufacturer’s certificate of origin) along with the scooter you bought, you should be able to register it at the DMV.
