<<Please excuse my naiveity but where are you meant to keep your registration? I thought one had to produce it (along with licence) if you were pulled over by the police.>>I, too, thought that the glove box was the storage place of choice for one's car registration. According to the police who came to look at the empty parking space formerly occupied by my car, you should keep it on you. You don't want to the perps to have access to it b/c (before the theft is reported, at least) they could claim that they are "borrowing the car from their friend [quickly check name on registration]."My hunch is -- although I have not verified it -- that between your license plate number and your driver's license, the police can find out under whose name the car is registered.In addition to removing the registration from the glove box, also make sure that there are no other identifying pieces of paperwork, like paycheck stubs, the car's title (!), gas charge card, repair receipts (the old ones will have your entire credit card number), etc. You don't want to compound the car theft crime by adding the headache of identity theft.
