Taking Care of Your Car When Relocating
If someone were to ask you to make a list of the things that you have to keep in mind during your move, would your car be on your list? Moving your car from one state to another has its own ins and outs that you should know about to avoid any unexpected complications.
How will you move your car?
You may be driving it yourself to your new address. This will probably be the case if you've hired professional movers. However, if you are performing the move yourself, you may have to leave your car behind while you move your things. If this is the case, then you can look for an auto moving company to get your car to you safe and sound.
Adjusting to the local DMV rules
The Department of Motor Vehicles has different rules for each state, and so you should check to make sure that you're complying with the DMV rules for your new state.
First off, change your license plates. Each state has its own plate type, and other plates will not be recognized as valid. You'll want to do this as quickly as possible.
Second, if you are young, or have a driving member of the household who is young, then you'll want to ascertain the legal driving age of the new state. Depending on the state, the minimum age requirement for being issued a driver's permit ranges from 16 to 25. This means that it is possible for someone to have been able to drive in one state for years, yet be legally unable to drive in another state.
