    I was in a car accident a couple of weeks ago. An electric company was parked on the shoulder of the right side of the road and I was in the far right lane. The driver made a u turn and hit my car. He kept going and came back. The owner of the company tried to pay me off before the police came. The other driver received a ticket. I asked the police for the other driver’s info but he told me it’ll be in the police report. I had to wait a whole week to file a claim. I’m afraid that because of the wait it maybe difficult. The right side of my car is completely damaged. I can’t drive it. I got a lawyer but I’m not sure of much of what is going on and I can’t talk to my insurance company because I got a lawyer. Oh and me and the driver has the same insurance company.

    Probably is a dumb question but Just bought my first car, it came from a different state (NC) to New York where I live, I know I obviously have to get it state inspected once the car is changes owners. The question I had was I got my temporary tags from dealer until I get my official plates from NY dmv which could take a month, do I wait until I get my NY plates and then go do my safety inspection or can I still do it with the NC plates on? DMV website says 10 days but not sure if it’s 10 days after I get temp tags or 10 days after I get my plates. Thanks.

It just seems expensive for even living in town and hardly ever getting to even go over 45, but living out of town was somehow the same price

  • Driving without car insurance?

    Best answer: If the car is registered, you must have insurance. If your insurance lapses and you do not turn in your tags, the DMV will fine you (doesn't matter if you don't even drive the car - you must be insured to register the car and have tags). There is no grace period. If you turn in the tags and drive only on... show more

If your insurance lapses and you do not turn in your tags, the DMV will fine you (doesn't matter if you don't even drive the car - you must be insured to register the car and have tags). There is no grace period. If you turn in the tags and drive only on your private property, then there are no fines, etc. since by turning in your tags, you basically unregister the car.

  • Car Registration Help?

    Best answer: You should be talking to your local DMV about this as the rules differ from state to state and I am not from your state. BET ON IT. While I cannot answer 100% correctly most of it is close enough to be true for you too. $800 in fees? What does that MEAN? A bill of sale is worth nothing...as he can create one... show more
    Best answer: You should be talking to your local DMV about this as the rules differ from state to state and I am not from your state. BET ON IT. While I cannot answer 100% correctly most of it is close enough to be true for you too.

    $800 in fees? What does that MEAN? A bill of sale is worth nothing...as he can create one out on clean toilet paper. if that is the only paper he has.. Some did it on cigarette cartons or a piece of wood. that they could write on. Or a BEER CARTON.
    A bill of sale is just a piece of paper between the seller and you, the seller saying you paid for the car in full. You hang onto that for a month and he can't come back when he sobers up and say you STOLE HIS CAR. He signed the bill of sale and that is your proof for the courts.

    "TRANSFER papers" is a government form that transfers the car (year,make,model and VIN code) from him to you PLUS the DATE & the government or DMV branch knows who owns the car should it be used in a CRIME. You are the registered owner and they know where you live. They tell the cops and WHAM,SLAM you are in prison.

    This is the legal paper government wants to have a carbon copy of. So you got a copy and the registration office works from. ...to license and insure vehicle over to you driving it. If it cannot be driven: then forget the insurance for now as the car is undriveable.

    . But you still have to register it in your name. It is now your set of wheels.
    (it is yours PROVIDED THERE WAS NO LIEN ON THE VEHICLE) from somebody else like a repair shop or BANK or Divorce. In otherwords you should have done a lien search on the vehicle to be sure it is free of such encumbrances because YOU don't own it because the seller did not own it to begin with as it was claimed by someone else. The seller knew that, and sold it anyways and you cannot find him or your money anymore. You gave your money away for something you can NEVER OWN.
    . That kind of stuff happens too. You spent $800. and got nothing to show for it.

    Some places(some countries) want to know how much you paid for the vehicle because there is a sales tax on that money, that you have to pay to the government. They get it from you right at registration. This is how government gets their cut of the transaction(the exchange of money for product)

    DMV could have told you this stuff when you have a FACE TO FACE with them. They will give you paperwork which is why Cell Phone is of No use here as your hands are not connected to it.

    Where I live, Transfer papers can be got at the Insurance Offices too. It is free paperwork. as you only need 1 per car.
