I have a question for the forum. I have custom tags (NOCRUDE) that I am transferring from a car that I'm about to sell. The paperwork for transferring the registration/plates to my Model S was submitted today but will take some time to process. So, should I go ahead and put the custom plates on now while keeeping the temporary registration slip in the window or just continue to drive around with that small piece of paper in the window only? Of note, while I wish we lived in a truly egalitarian society, history has taught me that a brother driving a nice car seems to get ahem..... Increased scrutiny by our boys and girls in blue, let alone driving without a license plate. Thoughts?
I moved my hard plates over from my old vehicle and carry the CA temp registration as well as the registration for my old vehicle with me. I am still waiting for the registration and title paperwork to be complete (had the car since 11/18). Today, I found out what the delay was all about.
If you cancel the insurance on your old car, MD MVA expects the old plates to be turned in almost immediately. You need to get the tag transfer request in prior to them getting the insurance cancellation notice. The administrator in "central lien" department helped me clear everything up today.
