    I got temp plates on my car until early Jan '05. Should I go register the car, or use the plates till they expire?

    I don't think there's any fines for not registering your car and just using temp.s.

    what would you do?

    in some states those temps only last as long as it would take to get ur registered plates - mn takes 2 months in some circuimstances to get plates , and i here some states are far worse - order them now to save your self some trouble

    Maybe you should ask your state's RMV department. Every state is different. Is your car currently covered by car insurance? Whatever you do, just make sure you have coverage... especially since it's winter.

    I have coverage for the car.

    I guess I figured I could save some cash for xmass if I didn't have to register and get plates.

    over here you have to register in order to get inspection. if you dont get it inspected expect a fine in the mail.

    Well in MA, we don't have temporary plates, but we need to at least process the retitling paperwork and give MA the sales tax within 14 days. The penalty for the late processing of the bill of sale and application for a new title is really minimal though. But anyways, just give a quick call to your state's RMV office.

    most state DMVs have license plates on hand there at your local DMV. i say go ahead and get them now while you have the money that way you dont have to scramble to get the cash together to get your plates on the day they expire.
