I was living in Tennessee but after losing my job I just came back to where my parents live in Mississippi.
My tags/registration for Tennessee expire at the end of September. I am actually going to be flying out this Friday, September 26 to go visit my girlfriend out in California and I will be staying there roughly 4 weeks to look for a job. Whether I get a job or not I will be coming back here at the end of October/early November. At that time I will either start looking for a job here in Mississippi if I can’t find one out there in that time frame or if I do get offered a job I will immediately come back here to pack up my stuff and move out to California. I haven’t decided whether I would drive my car which is older out there, sell it, transport it, etc.?
So what should I do about my car tags/registration/drivers license…would you change them out now here in Mississippi before I go this Friday or should I wait until I get back and do it the day I get back? The car wouldn’t be used at all during the time I’m gone.
I was thinking I should just wait until the day I get back if I don’t get a job out there OR if I do get a job out there but decide to not take it/or transport it there with a carrier.
But then I was thinking that if I do get a job out there and decide to drive my car out there I should renew it now so I’m not driving cross country on expired tags? Or would I be ok on expired tags just driving there for 1-2 days in transit and the day I get to California get new tags/registration/drivers license there?
