Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Thank you very much! Simple enough ..if I was still a resident of California. I now live in Florida and need to get the vehicle here and registered/titled here in my name.
So 1. Do I have to pull in a friend in California to take the paperwork on my behalf to California DMV in person? or 2. Can I take all the paperwork here to Florida DMV and have it transferred all at once?
(also, the vehicle is on a trailer so if i need it to be cleared in Cali first i can get it to smog station however, if I can get it towed and get all paperwork done here, Florida does not have smog requirements)
ok. Thank you. It is less about cost of registration/title than my physical proximity across the country and the cost of going back out.
Last question, do you think I can do the paperwork online or via mail??
If not, do you think Cali DMV will allow a third party to do the paperwork on my behalf (the same person willing to tow it here for me can get to the DMV for me)
