What do you mean by "waiting to become a resident"? I thought you said you already moved? What are you waiting for?

Do NOT pay your California registration! Register your car in Colorado asap. You can do that even if you've only lived here 1 day. If you pay in California, and then here, you will lose all of the money you paid in California. Yes you will have to get a smog here and then every 2 years after. Also you'll have to pay some stupid "VIN verification" fee. I don't know why. I'd never heard of it until I moved here but it's not much. It's still probably cheaper than Cali.
