Hey everyone,
I got a question and need some feedback or advice, so I purposely registered to start a post.
Two days ago I bought a car from a Lady in the bronx of new york..
After paying her and looking over the car.

At this point I informed her that I am only 20 years old and since this is the first time buying a car, I wasn't sure what to do next...

We then proceeded to fill out the title ( the back of the title )
So she went ahead and filled in the Seller Section of the title which is perfect..
She then proceeded to almost fill out the buyer section for me, and inputted the Bx as state and her Bronx Zip Code..
when I had noticed I told her to stop that I currently live in brentwood ny, where the zip code is also different.

At this point the buyer section was mostly blank besides wrong city and zip on the buyer section. So I filled it in with my name and address. I also went to over write on the zip code to fix it with my zip code.. she then told me I couldn't do that..

So the question is basically what am I suppose to do, what should I do next.. will the dmv accept my ny title with a small city and zip code mistake ??

Any advice appreciated.

I am no expert on dmv. Though if I were in the same situation, i would bring the title as is to the dmv alnong with proof of your correct address.. Such as your drivers license or utility bill, insurence and just explain it to the info desk when you first walk in. I am sure this happens often with people writting an old address or just make a mistake. The dmv must have seen and heard much stranger things than this. Good luck
