Question about registering a car in Pennsylvania
Quick question: I just moved here from NY and last week, I officially changed my address through the Post Office to my Philadelphia address. I have yet to change my license from NYS to a Pennsylvania license.
I am also in the process of buying a new car and the person I am buying the car from says that without a Pennsylvania license, the car would end up getting registered in NYS.
Does anyone know if I can still get the car registered in PA without having a PA driver's license, or would I have to get the car registered in NYS, then change the information over and re-register it once I get a PA license.
Any information or experience had with a similar situation would be extremely helpful.
So, yes, you need to get your PA license before you can title a car here.
As indicated below, individuals are required to have a valid form of Pennsylvania idenitification in order to make application to title and register a vehicle in Pennsylvania. Although new residents have 60 days to obtain a Pennsylvania driver's license, there is nothing to prevent them from obtaining their Pennsylvania driver's license sooner.
Here's all the info from the DMV for new residents on titling.

And on licensing:
You can get your temporary license right there when you go to the Pendot center. No waiting, you could do it today.
