After you finalized the purchase of your vehicle (yay!), you probably want to show off your new set of wheels to your friends and family. And you will also want to drive your shiny new car to work, the store, or any other errand you might have. But the only way to legally drive your vehicle before you have officially registered it is to have a temporary tag placed in your window.
What is a temporary tag?
A temporary tag is an official document that must be displayed in your rear window or license plate holder until you have registered your vehicle. It acts as a temporary registration until you can complete the permanent registration process. These tags are only valid for 30 days. Legally, you are required to have your registration completed within 60 days of purchasing your car.
Where to Get a Temporary Tag
You can get a temporary tag to be placed on your vehicle from the dealership you bought the car from. They should give you one automatically. If you bought your vehicle from a private owner, you can visit MVD Express to obtain a temporary tag.
