Register your vehicle from out of state in CA - online service.
Fill out the form below to start the process of registering your car, pick up, motorcycle, trailer or commercial vehicle from out of state in CA. Start the process online and avoid going to the CA DMV offices. We'll figure out the correct CA DMV registration fees for your situation, and will then send you an invoice for you to pay online. After payment, we'll provide an incomplete CA DMV registration with instructions on how to proceed. We will finish the vehicle registration process once you have provided your original registration card or title from out of state, VIN inspection, smog check and any other requirements as needed for your specific transaction, and will ship your new CA DMV registration card, and plates to you. See our Cars From Out Sate page for specific requirements for your type of vehicle.
