Where's my Honda Title? [Mar. 20th, 2007|10:55 pm]

I went searching my files for my Honda's title, but it's nowhere to be found.

My mom says the title (the Oregon title?) is in her safe deposit box in Portland, because I didn't have a safe or safe deposit box at the time (1999).

My California registration says:

*NO TITLE ISSUED/VEHICLE NOT TRANSFERABLE*
***CONTACT DMV FOR CA TITLE INFO***


What's that mean?

When I brought the car to California from Oregon, I didn't have the original title with me, so they couldn't give me a California title?

If my parents overnight the Oregon title to me, can I sell the car in California with an Oregon title, or do I need to transfer it to a California title first?

I don't know any of this. :(

Your Google-Fu is weak

Convert From Nontransferable Registration (http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/brochures/howto/htvr15.htm).

Translation:

Bring your Oregon title, CA vehicle registration, and CA driver's license to the DMV. As you are the owner, they will issue you a new CA title. It will probably be free, or $15.

I went through the same fun when I tried to sell my Corolla back in '05. 'Rents had the Oregon title, so I had Dad mail it to me. USE TRACKED SHIPPING. My title got lost in the mail, and I had to wait for a new oregon title to be issued, mailed to my father, mailed to me, and then finally I got to go back to the DMV. I don't need to believe in hell. I believe in the DMV.
