Sorry, I know this isn't specific to Portage Park, but I thought someone might be able to help...
I bought a car yesterday, from a dealer in Wisconsin. Anyone know what I need to do? I'm pretty sure that the dealer is submitting the title to IL and they gave me a temporary plate.
When do I go to the DMV and get it registered to me (and pay the taxes?) Do I go over to the DMV on Monday--with the sale papers? Or do I wait until the Title comes in the mail and then go over there? (Assuming its going to come in the mail??)
What do I do about my city sticker? Do I have to get a new one? (They stuck the old one on the new car.)
And can I put my old plates (from the car I traded in) onto the new car? Or is that a big no-no? (Until its properly transferred.) I'm worried someone's going to steal the temporary plate. (And if I can't put my plates on, can I put the temporary plate in the back window? Or is that a no-no too?
Help please! I looked at cyberdriveillinois, but its not clear to me.
