Buying out of state car & take it to California


I am considering buying an Insight from out of town - it says in a corner, re-built.

Would I have any issue at the DMV in California?


Why don’t you ask the California DMV?


You may run into pollution issues. Since this is a Calf DMV question, I suggest asking them what they will want when you go to register it.


I would also read up on how California handles salvage titled cars. There may be extra wickets to go through. To me, “re-built” = salvage title.


Your post is a bit difficult to interpret, but I’ll assume you are a resident of California.

In that case, read this.
