I don't think there's any state restriction on temp tags... you can buy a vehicle in SC here and they will throw an SC temp tag, then you drive it home to NC and have the SC tag for 30 days. I think I did this with my C5 IIRC.

This is all :rage: :wtf: after :troywax: nine fucking hundred USD on doc fees.
There is, California enacted a new law starting 2019 because a cop was killed by an illegal in 2018 that was driving on temp dealer tag, that "all vehicles, must have a DMV issued cali specific tag", I have never seen a vehicle in cali with an Out of state temp tag.

He can't possibly send me a temp tag because I AM HANDLING THE REGISTRATION. I can't even start the registration process before I go to a smog check station and get the appropriate paperwork. I have no idea what he is actually sending me. I have 20 days to register the car, which is fine, I just want the title... how fucking hard can that be.
Just depends where the title is.

I was actually talking to the dealer about it last night because I needed the title for the Volt. I didn't think I had it (I did) but he said when someone doesn't have it, they file for a lost title and get a replacement from the DMV so it's NBD.

He said they usually do it as soon as they take a trade in, but will list cars for sale while the process is going on so they don't miss a sale. I asked him what happens if they sell a car without a title, and he said they issue temp tags that are good for 30 days which is enough time to get the title sorted. Apparently this is common.

Sounds like what you might be dealing with? :iono: If they listed the car for sale without having the title sorted out, it's very possible you bought the car without a title. They'll get it sorted out, but my :dillerman: claims the process in Michigan to get a replacement title takes 2-4 weeks.

Yea the other issue is I could care less if it was within the same state. But since it is from Florida, I am pretty damn sure florida temp tags don't work for Cali. :yikes: or I am going to have a 5 min explanation to the CHP every time I fking drive the car.

Unless they've cracked down, I remember driving a car for 6 months with the :dillerman: ad plate on the back and the paper on the windshield without getting pulled over once. I'm not sure the CHP cares that much, aren't there more important things to focus on?

It’ll be hilarious once you get the temp tag and title in the mail that says it’s a 325.

They have, see my point about the Law we just enacted in 2019. Gone are the days from driving a 2000 S class with dealer plates to claim it was "new" .

It's really frustrating man... to them the transaction is done. But I have to keep fighting to get one of the most basic tasks accomplished. This is like "finding the car on the lot" bad. You bought a car but we can't find it. All I know for now I am getting a fking paperweight..

Honestly, MI has been this way for as long as I remember...growing up and seeing a "paper plate" taped to the back window, you knew someone got a new car :excited:

I thought it was weird the way CA did it before. BUT, jam the temp reg the :dillerman: sends you in there and you should be good. I doubt CHP will care that it's out of state, as long as something is there.

Not having a Cali paper plate or any plate = reason to get pulled over. I know I am not breaking the law for 20 days post the car getting here. But I just don’t wanna get pulled over. I am sure whatever they are sending is not going to be what I need to not get pulled over in Cali

Nah man...I really don't think they'll pull you over for out of state reg. What if you buy a car in AZ, NV, OR, etc? They won't issue a CA temp...and you can't be expected to stop at the very first DMV you come across to get the CA one. I get your concern, but I'd be amazed if CHP was bored enough to pull over a giant Russian in a clown car with FL temp tags.

Wait... :notsure: :lolol:

They are not giving me Florida old plates which would have been just fine. I would have rocked the old plates and it would have had 0 issues. But they are not giving me any.

In some states, like MI, the plates stay with the owner, not the car. Which is nice because when you pay reg, it's yours. Yesterday, we transferred the plate from the Volt to the Jeep for a $5 fee.

That might be the case in FL.

So i just contacted the transport company today... since they "promised" me an update and at 4pm florida time they still haven't told me anything.

THE CAR WILL BE HERE TOMORROW. BEFORE THE TEMP TAGS OR THE TITLE. :wtf: I am sort of :excited: Now i'll have an undrivable mini.

But so far the transport company while unresponsive, delivered on time (2 days early). :mindblown:

Call in, ask for the accounting department. Or ask for the title clerk.

That should get you access to someone in the back office.

Or, ask for the controller. The controller is the boss of the back office and I can assure you that she wants that deal finalized and done with.

Noted. I’ll give them a few hours, the title clerk is supposed to call me, not sure why but “soon” which means 24/48 hrs for these guys.

I’ll escalate if it doesn’t happen today.
