Re: Out of State purchase question - tags?

In Pennsylvania, for example, when you transfer registration the buyer must get a new plate (or transfer one that he/she already owns). Plates are tied to both owners AND vehicles. If I sell a car and still have, say, 10 months validity on my plate and registration sticker, I can transfer that to a new vehicle.

That's true for most vehicles in PA, with the possible exception of Antique vehicle plates, which may be able to transfer with those vehicles (not 100% sure on that one).

Re: Out of State purchase question - tags?

Hi,

Georgia didn't offer temporary tags so I just pulled the front plate off my tow van and pulled the purchased one home with my front plate on its back end.

Essentially I was saying that the trailer-van was mine and trusting the authorities would agree. I also had insurance on the new, towed van to cover it in case one of us had to drive it.

No issues in 1800 miles through 5 states, 1 province, 2 countries, and 1 international border. Each of which likely had differing rules.

Regards,

Gavin

In CA, if you put a plate on a vehicle that is registered to a different vehicle, you get in trouble.

Re: Out of State purchase question - tags?

In California the plates stay with the vehicle unless they are vanity plates. If the sticker on the plates is in date (valid) then the vehicle is considered registered and you can drive it upon the highway. When you sell a vehicle in CA it is incumbent upon the seller to complete the "notice of release of liability" which states who the purchaser is, now much the vehicle sold for and what the mileage was at the time of transfer. You (the seller) can file the release of liability online. Once the release is filed (or mailed, timely by postmark), the vehicle is not considered yours anymore but is still registered (as long as the sticker is valid). If the vehicle is to remain in CA then the buyer has 20 days to transfer registration. If going out of state then CA DMV doesn't seem to care.

I don't know the specifics on Oregon's rules, but the process sounds the same. The release of liability can be done online or by mail.
