The State Department of Motor Vehicles provides its consumers "In-Transit" or Temporary Plates for transporting vehicles within the state, or out of the state, to its ultimate destination where it will be registered.
The DMV provides these plates so that if you live outside of New York State and buy a motor vehicle here, you can safely transport it to your home state to have it registered without the hassle of having to go there first.
In order to obtain an "In-Transit" plate, you must meet ALL of the following requirements:
1.-Have a title that has been endorsed over to you
2.-Have a state identification card or drivers license
3.-Have valid insurance policy from outside of New York State. If you are an out-of-state resident, then you will need to bring an insurance binder. If you have NYS insurance, you do not qualify for this service
If you meet all of these requirements then you can obtain an "In-Transit" permit. In addition to these requirements, you will also need the MV82-ITP form for applying for the permit.
NOTICE FOR NYS CUSTOMERS:
THIS TRANSACTION OR SERVICE MAY ALSO BE AVAILABLE, AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE, DIRECTLY FROM THE OFFICIAL DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES WEBSITE AT WWW.DMV.NY.GOV
