The NJ DMV in Jersey City is on Summit Avenue at Sip (just in back of Journal Square, just a couple of blocks from the PATH subway station).

Before a car can be registered, it must be insured. You then transfer the title and register the vehicle. If memory serves me correctly, a NY title is immediately transferred. Some twenty years ago, I bought a van with a FLA title. In that case, I was given a receipt. The new title was mailed to me a week or so later.

When you register the vehicle, you'll be given a card with the date for the deadline for inspection.

BTW, when you change the title, you'll either have to pay NJ sales tax or provide proof of payment.

I'm neither a bureaucrat, nor an auto sales pro -- just an owner of (at various times) MANY tired old vehicles!

I hope that this helps.

: Hi,

: I just moved to New Jersey not too long ago from New York. I have purchased and owned used cars before when I resided in NY, so I am only familiar with how the registration process of used vehicle works in NY but not in NJ.
: I am planning to buy a used car that is registered and titled in the State of New York from an individual and then register the car in NJ.
: Can anyone tell me how I can complete this transaction with the New Jersey Motor Vehicle office?
: I believe that inspection is also required. Then when (before or after registering the car), how and where do I go for the inspection?

: Any advice is very much appreciated.

: Thanks!
