I'm moving from NYC to Tobyhanna and wanted to know if I needed to pay off my parking tickets before I could register my car here?

No but when I mailed in my NY plates NYC sent an unpaid ticket notice yo my new address. They now put you into collections after 30 days so you should take care of them sooner than later.

You need a PA drivers license before you can register your car. Parking tickets from New York State will not hinder your getting either a PA drivers license or car registration.

IIRC, when I moved to PA from NJ I had to physically bring the vehicle to the PennDOT office when registering it. But that was around 15 years ago. Not so here in AZ.

You do indeed need to have the vehicle with you to register it. Try actually come out to check the VIN and read the odometer.

One other thing, carefully read what you need to register. I had to order a new title from NY DMV as i couldnt find mine. And because it was so "new" PA gave me a problem- the title issue date was too close to me trying to transfer it over to PA. It was easily corrected as I had about 5 years worth of old insurance cards in my files to prove I actually owned the car prior to the date that the new title was issued. The hassle was driving about 35 miles round trip to bring them the info.
