Registering Dodge Ram Truck From Nevada in California
I got a 2021 Dodge Ram 1500 as a gift from Nevada and I want to get it registered in California and put in my name. How do I do that? Anything special I need since it's from out of state and I got it as a gift? Thanks.
Ensure the current out-of-state title is signed by both you and the person (entity) who gifted you this Dodge Ram truck. The previous owner(s) signature on the original title will be the single most important piece of documentation you'll hold to complete this title transfer. It will help to have a bill of sale as well, indicating the vehicle's identification and purchase price; as $0.00 (GIFT). You'll be required to turn in your out of state title and submit a California Application for Title or Registration Form (REG 343) in order to receive a new California Certificate of Title. You may schedule a VIN verification by either calling a local CHP field office or the DMV at (800) 777-0133.
