Live in Pa, bought in NJ Question

So I just bought a 2012 JKU in Cherry Hill NJ, but I live over in Bucks County. Has anyone bought out of state before? I am wondering if this process is correct.

When at the dealer, they where telling me I don't need any other temp paperwork while waiting for my registration and tags to be mailed to me. They did put up a NJ Non-Resident Temp Tag. They say I will receive my registration and Tags in the mail in 2-3 weeks. I must have asked them 20 times if that is all I need since I remember having a pink form that was my temp registration ppwk on my previous car when I bought it. But of course I have never bought out side of PA before.

So the jeep doesn't have pa inspection stickers either. So I call me local garage that I usually get all my cars inspected at and of course they are telling me they need the pink copy of form mv-1 which is my temp registration form to inspect it. She also tells me what I thought in that that form is what I need to carry on me when driving.

I called the dealer, waiting on a call back. Just wondering if anyone has had this issue also. I just don't like the idea of driving around with a NJ non-resident temp tag, no pa temp registration form, and no inspection stickers.

I bought a used Wrangler in NJ and live in PA but it was from a private party (individual) - not a dealer.

When I paid the dude and received the title , I had to take the title to the NJDOT to buy a temporary tag (I needed to drive the Jeep home) - good for 20 days and cost around $5.

When I got back to PA I went to a local notary with the title and a bill of sale (which I didn't really need), a picture or tracing of the VIN, and proof of insurance. That's when I paid the sales tax, registered the Jeep in PA, and got my pink slip and tag (with registration card and title arriving in a week or so from PennDOT) . Once registered, you still have like 10-days to get inspected.

It sounds like the NJ dealer collected your PA taxes and forwarded to PennDOT and the paperwork/tag will come shortly.

I don't know if any of that helped or not - but that's my story :-)

Enjoy!

You can't have a vehicle registered I'm Pa until it is inspected, at least that's what the "geniuses" at my local AAA said. I had to provide a bill of sale to my mech for my inspection. Private sale tho..

That's backwards. Mechanics need to see the registration (and insurance) for inspection. Auto tag places do not check inspection.
