Can I register a vehicle in a different state than I live?
I bought a trunk in California but the original owner lives in Arizona. I was wondering if I could keep the registration information for Arizona so I could get around taxes in California?
Auto insurance is state-regulated and zip code specific. Meaning, you need insurance is that rated (i.e., priced) for the zip code you live in and built for the state you live in (California). So, by having your insurance for Arizona but living and driving in California, you risk having your coverage denied and canceled. Which, if you're in an accident, can leave you financially at risk. Your best bet is to get insurance for the neighborhood you live in. Do that here with us.
