Thanks alot! This forum has been a life-saver for us on so many levels. Hubby is checking out housing today in Kingston with realtor -- I'm excited to see what he learns as I'm holding down the fort here til next month.
If they don't consider you a resident yet because of their proof requirements, then isn't it okay to continue to drive around with your California plates and insurance beyond the 30 days? You know, your 30 day count would start when you got your permanent new address. What would happen though if your California plates expire before you have the residency proof? I don't know if the current insurer of your vehicle has offices in Tennessee (like State Farm, for example, has offices all over) but they might be a good person to ask. I'm thinking your voter registration is also left hanging for the same reason.

Thanks, Laura for your comments. Had not thought about checking with our current insurance agent (Allstate, or State Farm). We want to get our CA plates and license removed ASAP is the issue, not insurance, etc or legal issues. Just got our new re-newal for one of our cars yesterday- 220 bucks! And, we're only in CA for 3 more weeks! Then, I'm assuming we have to re-register the cars in TN.

Doesn't anyone know how much more it is to transfer your title for newcomers? I have been trying to find this online and the DMV site doesn't say the fees. I have heard that in some states it is several hundred dollars to get a title for that state.

I'm afraid you're going to have to call the county clerk's office of the county you're moving to in Tennessee. The fees vary from county to county.

In Knox County, you pay $70.50 to transfer your car's title to a Tennessee title. After that it's something like $60 annually because of that insane $36 "privilege tax" that we pay because we're privileged to register our cars in Knox County. Most counties in Tennessee pay just $24.

This link will give you the addresses and phone numbers of every county clerk office in the state:

Default CA to TN Title (car) Transfer?

So, we received our DMV bill for one of our cars, 220 dollars -- but the good news is that it's not due until middle of June. If I understand the previous couple of posts, when we do some kind of transfer(guessing simply means that we're registering our car as being owned now in TN) for which there is a fee($70 or so)? Additionally, we pay to register the car for the next year, at TN rates? Do I have this right? Guess I need to check w/DMV here in CA as to any notification re: unpaid bill (since we won't be living here beyond 10 May). Am I clear on this?? THANKS! (While I'm at it, any Hardin Valley residents/opinions on this board? Hubby says several nice homes in this area, close to both Oak Ridge and Knoxville, but sort of off to itself.)

You go to the office on Emory Valley Road in Oak Ridge - looks like it use to be part of an old school. Took me about 15 minutes and mine was complicated thanks to the stupid state of Mississippi.
