Default License plate info please

Do I need or can I obtain a temporary license plate? Do I get it from Illinois or Texas? I know itís been discussed here and I canít remember what was discussed in the thread.

I bought a truck and itís located in Texas. Iím debating on driving it back or possibly just trailer it back to Chicago and itís not an issue. I wanted to ask those who have gone this route and obtained a plate either from the state where the vehicle is located or your home state?

Thanks for your time as always

Joe

Illinois only gives temp plate if you have the title. You would get the temp plate from the state your buying it in. I have drove 5+ cars across the country without a plate and never had issue. But if you want to be safe you would get the temp plate from Texas DMV. Make sure to check out what is required before going down there. Its NEVER an easy process without wasting a bunch of time.

If you have a title you can get a temp plate, if the vehicle is financed you can use the buyers order and the bank paperwork to obtain plates. Donít forget insurance, even if you have grace time to apply, I always err on the side of caution and get a policy started with the bank info.

Of course, Iím in Ohio, the rules may be different in Illinois

Might vary by state but you have multiple days to obtain plates or a temp tag. Even your insurance would cover a vehicle for 48 hours.


Is it from a dealer? I’d just rock one of their advertisement plates and just drive it back. I’ve done it multiple times with multiple cars and have never been pulled over and if you are you just have to prove you have insurance and just purchased it (bill of sale/title)
