    I'm applying to get that sweet $2,500 CA state ev incentive, but for the life of me I can't find where Tesla posts proof of registration documents?

    I remember asking my rep when I picked up my model 3 if I have to register, and he said it's all done through Tesla.

    Anyone have experience with this problem?

    Tesla needs to register when you pick up the car - the form is "Application for Registration of New Vehicle." I received a copy when I picked up the car. If your car has the temporary registration on the bottom of the passenger side windshield, then the form was filled out.

    Also, go here: and go to Page 18 showing what you need for Tesla.

    In your Tesla account, in your Model 3 page, click on "View Vehicle Details." On the right side, you should have option to view "Motor Vehicle Purchase Agreement." Initially, I did not have that option so I had to call Tesla to have it emailed to me.

    My MVPA was not signed, if the same applies to you, you will need to proceed with Option 3 (Sample 4, 5 & 6). The Delivery Declaration was provided to me (and was executed) when I picked up the car.

    You can just peel off the window registration and scan it.
    Or wait for the permenant registration to come In the mail with your plate.
