The vin does come back clean and not stolen. If what I'm trying next doesn't work then looks like this is the route I'll be taking. Thanks for the info!

The NC DMV inspectors are not cops, they wield more power than the state troopers (Only outranked by the game warden, the FBI, the secret service, and then the IRS) and they seem to find the most pissed-at-the-world individuals to fill this position.



I am going to hope for one that is in a good mood........ Inspectors aside, has anyone used the Vermont registration in North Carolina to get a title?
Do they recognize the Vermont registration as proof of ownership?
Do they uestion the fact that I obviously don't live there?

I just want to hear from someone who has gotten a title this way that it does indeed work.

Yes they do, especially if the paper trail in their system shows that it's been in NC the whole time. NC DMV has been known to take extra efforts in tracing & denying title transfers from "title mill" states. I don't know if Vermont has been recognized as such but they really cracked down on titles from those mid-western states that were always used in the "get a title for any car" ads in Hemmings & the like.

When I got my latest project registered last week, it got flagged due to being out of the system for 35+ years & a DMV officer called the tag agency to have them send a fax of the title to be reviewed by the overlords.

Thanks for all the helpful info here. My scenario and question is somewhat different.

I have a title in my name for my bus. The bus I've been working on is in another state 500 miles away from where I live and is in the final stages of being put together. Here's the thing. My state's DMV issues a two week registration and plates and then you must get the car inspected within those two weeks of being issued plates and registration. Once the vehicle goes through the inspection station, you renew the registration and license plates and you're off you're merry way.

However, the initial registration and plates of two weeks is not enough time to do shake down tests and drive the bus from 500 miles to where I live. Ideally, I'd like to get the VT registration and plates to have extra time to test drive and get the bus ready to travel 500 miles.

Here's the million dollar question: If I already have a title in my name, can I apply for VT plates and registration?

Have it shipped home, or trailer it yourself. You will be way ahead of the game.

Looks like in my jurisdiction, trip permits are for buses and commercial vehicles only.

Can't you just temp tag it multiple times (after each 2 week period expires)?

no sense in swapping state to state titling back and forth unless your planning on moving as well...

Dan, you can use your Title to register it, BUT Vt. will not give you a VT. title, and will not give you yours back, if you lived here you can get a title for your Vw if it is registered, thru a Notary w/ the proper DMV forms.
I'd write a bill of sale and use that, they WILL tax the shit out of you for the 1st time you register it, but it will get you plates & registration. Look them up on line & call them, they have no problem w/ taking your $$$, even if you live out of state. You can tell them you paid $100 for it, that does not matter, they still will tax the shit out of you... But you get plates good for a year.

I can lend you my Bus Tow bar if you want to tow it, I can bring it down to Wellfleet if you want.
