Yes but the owner needs to be named and all driver info need to be given too.

Registration, license plate number and title right?

No. Whoever's name is on the title is going to be on the registration and insurance also. You can pay for the car and title it in somebody elses name, but at that point you've given them a free car, because you have no legal rights to the vehicle at all.

They can be on the title, but not on the registration or insurance.

If the title, registration, and insurance are still all in your name, you (or your insurance company) would be responsible.

Not unless that other person is there with you.

no, not legally. you need title to get registration, unless you know a shady character.

You should still have the title to the car. If you take the title to the Dept of Motor Vehicles they will have record of your car's registration and will issue you new papers. The insurance company will also have record of your policy and can issue you a new insurance card.

NO!!! I think that's illegal unless you have that person with you.

If only your name is on the title and the loan is not listed as a lien on that title then you are the legal owner. If someone else obtained a car loan for you then their name should be on the title to the car with yours. The question of ownership should be addressed if someone was kind enough to borrow money for you to have a car. The car should have full insurance coverage in case of an accident.

Take the title in to your DMV and show it to them, and get a new registration.

Go to a NJ DMV office with the old registration, proof of insurance and checkbook. Fill out the forms and the nice people there will give you a fresh document. If no registration exists take the vehicle title with you.

One has nothing to do with the other unless the insurance carrier is asking for the registration to show that the vehicle belongs to you. Often times they will require you to show them a current copy of the registration or the title to the vehicle. The registration is used because most vehicles are financed so the bank or finance company would have possession of the of the actual title since they are the leinholder.

== == You need to contact the DMV in your state for the correct way to do this.

CA does not record the title number on the CA registration card. The CA title number is listed in the bottom lower right hand corner of the CA title. Vehicle Registration Wizards -

You don't need insurance to trade but you do need proof of ownership. If you don't have a title, then contact your Motor Vehicle division and ask for a replacement.

By saying that your name is not on the registration, I assume that it also is not on the title. If you or your spouse do not own the vehicle you cannot insure it. It doesn't matter how you ask the question. You must have interest in the vehicle to insure it.

Generally speaking, a title insurance producer is the same as a title insurance agent.

No, Florida law does not require that title insurance be issued. The only requirement to transferring title, is that a proper deed be recorded. However, having said that, if you are buying a property from someone, title insurance is greatly recommended. Title Insurance is the only thing that protects you in the event you receive a fraudulent title, or you later find out that there are undisclosed liens or encumbrances against the title. I would never buy any property without the protection of a title insurance policy. If, on the other hand, your parents are transferring to you their property, and you already know the history of the title, title insurance would not be needed.
