I had recently purchased a 2013 car from a small local car dealer paid in full on day of purchase and they said my check had to first clear before they can provide title (RED FLAG), I still went ahead with purchase and later found many issues with my car. I called dealer several times and left many voicemails but they never called back. Long story short, my first 30 day plates had expired and dealer had to issue 2nd plate, after nearly 60 days without title I had to do something but did not know where to start or who to call. I'm here to tell you if your in the same boat as me here is what you should do...
Step #1 - Call the "Motor Vehicle Dealer Board" issued for your state. In my case it was Virginia Motor Vehicle Dealer Board of Richmond Virginia. Do a web search to find your local dealer board. Next they may forward your claim to the DMV Law Enforcement agency for further investigation. Lastly if the dealer is registered with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) bbb.org you can file a complaint there as well.

I hope this helps you as it had helped me! Took over 60 days to get car title but in the end the dealer was reported in violation of state licensing laws by not registering title transfer within 30 days. Some states have different laws but most are 30 days. GOOD LUCK and Know Your Civil Rights!
