The car I drive isn’t registered to me. It’s a long story which I don’t want to go into right now but recently I’ve decided I should probably get the title transfered over to me so I started researching how to do that. Luckily, the California Department of Motor Vehicles Web site is full of useful information, especially this nugget from their FAQ:
Q: What if I cannot remember the name of the person to whom I sold or transferred the vehicle?
A: You may put “unknown” in the new buyer’s name and address fields
Other than Tony Soprano, who sells a car and doesn’t know the name of the person the car was sold to or forgets his/her name four days after the sale (by law, the seller is required to notify the DMV of the sale within 4 days)?
