Congratulations on your move. I'm sure you won't miss that cold Ohio weather! It's actually pretty straightforward. After establishing residency in California, go to a local DMV office and submit:

  • An Application for Title or Registration (Form REG 343) with the signatures of all owners, the information for any lienholders, if applicable.
  • Proof of vehicle insurance
  • Out-of-state title, as you're transferring your title to California.
  • Out-of-state registration.
    • You may also use a registration renewal or letter showing registration from the DMV in the last state where it was registered.
  • Smog and emissions certification
  • Payment for all fees and taxes

A DMV employee will perform a physical inspection of the vehicle and a VIN verification. You will receive a California registration certificate, plus license plates and registration stickers for your vehicle.

There is a $56 registration fee, and a California Highway Patrol fee of $24 that will be assessed.

You are supposed to complete the registration process within 20 days of moving.

Please let me know if I may clarify anything or you need additional information.
