Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Sales to government entities, state, federal or municipal or to non-profit entities in CA are exempt from sales taxes. So if you are selling to one of those entities, the sale is exempt from sales taxes and you simply document the entity you sold to and no taxes would be due.

The DMV is a state government agency, so yes, even if it is sold to the DMV or any other government agency.
