Can you drive a unregistered car you just bought?
Subsequently, one may also ask, can I drive an unregistered car to get it registered?
The only time you can legally drive an unregistered car is to get the car registered – such as driving directly to your inspection station or to a registry. And you must use the most direct or convenient route. Better still, get it organised before your registration expires.
Furthermore, can you drive a car without plates if you just bought it?
If a license plate is not available at the time of purchase, the dealership should give you a temporary plate that is good for 30 days. Remember, you should never drive home without one of these options on your vehicle! They will be sent to the address where you registered your vehicle.
A standard trip permit allows the owner of any motor vehicle, trailer or semitrailer to move the vehicle from one location to another without registering the vehicle. Standard trip permits are valid for three consecutive days. The Virginia trip permit is valid only in Virginia.
