How Do I Register My 2014 Chevy Truck in California

I'll be moving to California soon and want to bring my truck along. I was wondering how much registering my vehicle in California is going to cost and what fees are involved. If it makes more sense, I think I might sell it here before moving.

Your California registration fees will be based on a few factors, including the value of your vehicle during the time you apply for registration and the county in which you'll be residing and registering the truck in. Your truck will need to have the VIN inspected by the California Highway Patrol or certified VIN verification office, and you'll need to submit a VIN Verification Form (REG 31). You'll also be required to turn in your out of state title and submit a California Application for Title or Registration Form (REG 343). You exact fees can be calculated using our online title transfer system or by calling the DMV.
