I am 21 year old guy from Finland and I´m planning a roadtrip with my friend to the US. We wanted to add some excitement to our trip and instead of a rental car we would like to buy one. I´ve been doing some research about the interstate in-transit permit issued by the New York state DMV. I´ve called some car dealers and some of them say that it is possible for us to get it and some of them say it is not. Can anyone of you help me on this? Is it possible for no US citizen to get the in transit permit and what are the requirements? Some people have also told me that lacking a valid address could be an issue. I ´ve got some friends living in California, will their address be any good to me if I happen to need an "address"?. What about temporary registration in New Jersey. I received an email from the local DMV telling me that it´s possible for non US citizen to temporarily register a vehicle as long as he/she provides a title, poof of insurance and a licence. Will international driver licence be good enough an how easy it is to get the insurance?
Thanks in advance!
