Why would you waste your time taking your bike to the DMV? There is no inspection of your bike to get a plate. They usually don't have plates there and they know nothing about motorized bike laws. The DMV drones after much deliberation and talking to supervisors may tell you that you don't need to get a plate. Print out the Reg230 PDF form, fill it out and MAIL it in with a $20 Postal Money Order. The DMV will mail your plate and ID to you in a few weeks to a month? You will need to go to the DMV to sit the written test to get a temp M1 license that is good for a year, but I wouldn't even try to get the plate at the same time.
