    Florida Regestration?

    Anyone know if it is less difficult in Florida? I have 3 options of states I could register a car if I buy one. Illinois, Georgia & Florida. I would think Illinois would be most difficult with perhaps Florida and Georgia the same but I really have no idea. If you would rather keep responses private please PM me with any thoughts. I would like to get a car but it would be 90% for the street with occasional track days.

    You don't get a Florida registration! Atom is not NHTSA approved. No chance.

    This is what you get back from the DMV if you try to register your AA in Florida.

    One option is purchasing the Atom as a "rolling chassis" and installing the engine/drivetrain yourself. By many definitions, this act makes YOU the manufacturer, no longer Ariel, thus eliminating most of the NHTSA requirements. From what I understand, the only requirements pertaining to kit cars as far as the NHTSA is concerned, has to do with certain items being marked DOT approved. (Lighting, seat belts, tires, glass...) Just a thought.

    same with Hawaii, you can't legally get it regged in the state no matter what you do sadly. kit cars have to resemble an already existing car so there is no chance of using that method here at least, idk about florida and kit cars.
