If daughter is a student in NC and car cannot be inspected in NY then registration cannot be renewed in NY. What do we do? Car was inspected in NC. Thanks!

Well one thing you don't do is post about it on the LA forum.

I don't claim to be a genius but the obvious answer to me is that since she is in NC, the car was inspected in NC, would be to just license the car in NC.
Is there a reason to keep the NY plates ?

"I think" it depends on living situations. It's been a while since I've been in college but I think if you are living in a dorm you are considered a student and not a resident of the state so they wouldn't be eligible to register the car there. If they rent an apartment off campus then they should be able to??? If they are able to register in NC "I would imagine" that registration, taxes and insurance are much less than NY so it would make sense to take advantage. Of course I don't live in NY or NC so this is all speculation

Other than paying more for car insurance I can't think of a reason.

I'm dealing with a similar situation and will be opening a separate thread. But my college daughter had a car registered out of state. She graduated in June and will be staying in NC while she goes to grad school. She has moved in with her boyfriend (well out of college) and want to adopt the new address as her permanent residence. Right now the car is titled in both her and my name.

If I keep the car on the insurance policy, she, my son and I all get a multi-car discounts which is considerable. If I register the car in NC, she will need separate insurance and her rate will be a lot higher. My/my son's also creep up. I think since both of our names are on the title, but I'm listed as the primary, the car can be registered where I live and she can still drive it as a resident of NC but I'm not sure and she's very nervous. Apparently, some of the cops have nothing better to do than ask cars to pull over and pull out their registration. Some cop told her when she was in undergrad that since she was living in the state she needed a NC driver's license. She explained she was a full time student and he said he didn't care; she still needed one. He wasn't very nice about it. She ended up stressed out and confused. It's not the end of the world, but I would just like to avoid any confrontations between her and the cops.
