I am driving a car that my parents bought for me when I was younger. Everything is in their name.
I am in a different state (parents in MD, me in WA) and need to change the plates. situations seems a bit delicate.
I am thinking they need to change ownership to me. This usually results in a plate change but since they live in MD and would do this from there, I would get new MD plates. Then I go to WA and ask for the plates to change again but this time since I am a WA resident, I can get the WA plates.
Does this sound right? Are the DMV people linked? Can they just give me WA plates from MD? (the car is physically in WA).
