Recent DMV Questions

  • I bought a used car on November 1st from Hertz Car Sales.

    I bought a used car on November 1st from Hertz Car Sales. The car apparently only had one license place, so they said the DMV would send me new plates. The plates still haven't arrived. I called the DMV on the Dec 4th and they said the plates were sent
    on November 21st, and wait a week for them to arrive. If not, call back. No license, so I had called the DMV again on Dec 11th and they had no record of new plates being ordered, and the person had checked with their supervisor to confirm that there were no
    new plates on order. This is in CA. Hertz says the BOS was processed on November 21st, and that it will take 4-6 weeks to receive the sticker. In the meantime, my car has no plates, not even the frame with "Dealer Paper" underneath. I've been pulled over once
    because of no plates, and they had to look at the BOS on the windshield passenger side. Should Hertz have a "Dealer Paper" for me or is that not required? Is there anything else I can do about the license plate so I'm less likely to get pulled over?
  • My uncle asked me to be his POA, but prior he was pressured

    My uncle asked me to be his POA, but prior he was pressured by a former caregiver to sign over his car to her son. The caregiver asked for a lot of money and stole from him and was arrested andwent to prison in January of 2013. The police asked her son to bring back my uncle's vehicle which he wanted. The vehicle was returned over a year ago. But there is no registration or pink slip. My uncle who is confined to a wheelchair does not drive anymore but wanted the vehicle for us to drive him to appts as he has weight issues in transfer and his larger vehicle is more comfortable than our family car for him to get into. We moved him to another town/and facility by his request, and sold his home by his request, but the his car is still in the driveway of the now sold home where he used to live and when we went to the DMV, because it was still under the caregiver's name..we could do nothing. The police confirmed the car is his but there is no court document. What can we do to get this back into his name?
