Most dealerships will complete all the paperwork that you need. At the dealership I work for...we send runners to do the registration for you...including out of state...CT/VT...etc.

That's bizarre...perhaps he's using the Dealer Plate to sell some stuff that is not owned by the dealership. This is probably a violation of the law...and...at the very least...a violation of his companies policy. At any dealer I've worked...this is a fireing offense. You don't need a registration to sell a vehicle...but...you do need the title.

i asked him where his dealership is and he told me hes got a full time job working for some other place not selling cars but he gets cars for people i didnt understand that at all.I told the guy i didnt want to buy the truck something was not right at all.but my buddy told me if hes got a dealer plate he has to have a used car dealership someplace.maybe he was selling it at his house to save on taxes?i dont know but i didnt buy it for that reason it was just strange.
