Virginia residents

15 posts in this topic

Any Virginia residents here or people who can help me? I bought a car on Ebay that I'm picking up in Virginia this friday and I want to know how to do the transfer and get a transit to drive the car home to Canada. See my post in the Oldsmobile section under "bought a 77 Cutlass Supreme" if you want to see this beauty.

Thanks

VA DMV

Here is a link to the Virginia DMV. I hope this helps out

Yes I've read all through the site but I can only find Phone numbers that are 1-800 for information and they don't work from here ( Canada). Feel like making the call for me and asking what the procedure is for out of state residents who buy a car in Virginia? 1-866-368-5463 or 1-800-435-5137, I'd owe you one.

The response from the DMV

Thank you for visiting www.dmvnow.com.

DMV in VA does not issue 30 day tags.

He can visit a VA DMV Customer Service Center and purchase a 3 day

owner's trip permit. He will need to provide us with the VIN, make, model

and year of the vehicle. He will need to have insurance on the vehicle

or purchase a month of Uninsured Motorist Insurance. He will also need

a Bill of Sale from the seller.

To purchase the trip permit he will need proof of ownership such as a

valid assignable title, valid assigned title, registration card, bill of

sale or other document showing ownership.

The fee for the trip permit is $5.

A link to our DMV office locations is below:

Did you check with your local DMV about how to get the car in to Canada?

Where in VA are you getting the car?

Honestly the easiest thing to do would be to haul it back on a trailer.

Did you check with both the Federal governments of the US & Canada about getting it across the border? Since 911, it is not as easy as it use to be.

As long as he has all his proper paperwork (title, bill of sale) signed and dated he should have no problem leaving the US with his car. However I have no idea about getting it into Canada.

Will customs want any kind of money upfront for taxes or anything like that?

I don't know, but I do believe emissions and polution regs might be an issue, I don't think the standards are the same between the US & Canada.

He has to go through some kind of approval process, shouldn't be a big deal for a car that old. Now, if he bought a new GTO, it could be an issue.
