I live in Maryland(MD) and my parents just bought a car for me in Michigan(MI). However first I don't have a title claim on the car let alone an insurance. Is it possible for me to get a temporary plate from MD, go to MI, staple that in and drive the car back?
So to get that plate from MD I have to apply for car title, which would take ~2 weeks. Can my parents just send me their title signed through mail and I can sign it in MD or is the car title only valid in MI and I have to get a temporary MI plate to drive that car back to MD? And how does this work for gifts? Do my parents declare $0 cost on the car in the title?
