Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If the registration is in someone else's name, then you cannot register it in NYC in your name, the original owner has to register it. So unless you have a bill of sale and you file to obtain a title/registration in your name, you could not register it. If you have a bill of sale and title you can then register it in your name even if the registration has expired.
