Suppose that a new international student (S) in the US is looking to buy a car ASAP, but it may take few weeks before S can find free time to read and do the DMV test. But S has his or her own country's driver's license at the moment and has found a car to buy. S wants to purchase it before the seller sells it to another person.
There is a field on the back of the pink slip with the title "Driver license or ID card no". As it has 8 spaces to fill it seems S can not write a SSN or visa number there because they have 9 characters. How should S fill this part?
Can S buy a car without having a California's driver's license?
If so, should S change this field in the future, after S gets a driver's license, to that number?
