out of state to NJ transfer of title questions

I've looked at the NJ DMV website but cannot find the specifics to my questions.

Say I'm looking to purchase a used NAS D90 from an out of state seller who is meeting me at a local NJ mechanic.

1. Prior to my meeting, I'll have called my insurance company to add the vehicle to my coverage.

2. I'll have him sign over and give me the out of state title after purchase. Does he also give me his current out of state registration?

3. He will remove his plates.

At this point, the car will not have plates and will not be registered or titled in NJ.

1. Can I still drive the car home?
2. Will it have to be inspected before registering and titling the car? I know when I go to get my car inspected at the DMV, they ask for my registration and license first.

Are there any other issues I overlooked?

Not sure about NY, but VA DMV has a "transport cert" you can get on their web site. good for 3 days from date on a signed title. You have to provide insurance info and VADL #. You might check the NYDMV.

You cannot "legally" drive the vech until plates registered to you are on the truck with nj ins. card .

I would give the title and bill of sale to your insurance agent and tell her/him to go register your new vehicle and get the title and plates.

How it works in Maryland.
Take the title, proof of insurance, and just for added security the bill of sale to your DMV.
They issue a tag/plate with 30 day temporary stickers. Now you can drive your vehicle for inspection, get your inspection cert. then take inspection cert. back to the DMV and then they issue you your normal dated stickers for the tag/plate they initially gave you.

This is correct!
With the signed title you will go to NJDMV, get a registation and title in your name (be sure to have your insurance card with you) and you can then drive your new D90 home legally. You'll have 14 days after that to get the car through a state inspection.
Perhaps I will be seeing you. Good luck

As Rolf said, a car can't be driven in NJ by a NJ resident without full registration. Register first, inspect later. Temporary registration is available for someone residing out of state and purchasing a car in NJ.

Another option is to trailer the truck home.

Thanks for all of the replies. I'll register first and then inspect later. Just need to go early enough so I can get to the DMV before it closes.

For sellers, what is the usual payment accepted. He is driving from out of state so would a bank check be good enough or should we go to the bank together and I wire the money directly into his account in his presence?

My mechanic, recommended by Keith, actually said he could make house calls with his computer diagnostics to give the car a go over. Obviously, I would't have a lift. I could have him come to either my home or office where I could leave the car and have a less pressured time about getting all the paperwork in order. Would this be a good idea?
