I've searched and searched but I haven't quite found the answers I needed.

What it is that my folks no longer needed their 1997 Nissan which is registered in Florida and obviously since I'm posting in here I'm in NC. They dropped off the car and the title. I realized after they had left to go back up north to Massachusetts where we're originally from that my father had forgotten to sign on the back but had signed on the front.

Though on the title it is listed as my mom OR my dad. So does this mean I can still take it to the DMV to have it transferred to me?

Also I filled out a form "MVR 6" I believe it was and had it notorized showing that I'm receiving the car as a gift from my folks is there any other paper work I need to take to the DMV to change the title ownership over to solely me? Or anything else besides the plate?

Another thing is thing is that the tags have expired and because of that should I wait until the title is in my name (and shown as registered in NC) before I get it inspected. Or is inspection required before changing ownership of the title?

Well that is about it! Please, I appreciate any help.

The best way to get your answers is to go down to the DMV-Title office,
bring chocolate, show them what you have and ask what you need.

Do it all that day because the next day they will change what you need to do.
Also stick with the same person so you get the same answer at least for that day.

We have dealt with boat and auto transfers to NC from other states after
an estate was settled and it was comical the many and crazy steps you have to go through.....

"We need for you to turn 3 circles, close your eyes, sing a song and
clap your hands" "YES SIR... WHICH SONG?"

What Kelly237 said. I second that. The most ideal situation is to bring the selling party in with you.

I know when I bought a car the seller's signature had to be notarized. But I have heard they don't enforce it if the titled state doesn't require it.

DMV does typically want to see notarized signatures to show a "clean" title. Even for mundane things like small trailers.
I never thought about the chocolate angle. Man you guys are good !

He he, if I did decide to bring chocolate they wouldn't last the trip as I would eat them all. I may need to bring banana bread instead.

I really don't think that the folks are going to drive another 2days to get back here to sign more papers unless its back on the way to Florida which wouldn't happen until November. So I'll have to make do with what I have and pray its enough. =)
