I'm planning a 4 month trip during summer/fall next year after doing a few weeks in Peru.
My wife and I will fly from Peru to Seattle, then on to Vancouver where we will meet up with relatives and travel around British Colombia and then a roadtrip from BC along the West Coast to Los Angeles.
We would like to purchase a car in Seattle, drive it to and around Canada and then use it for the roadtrip.
We are both South African citizens living in London, but I will probably be travelling on a British passport (as I would have qualified for nationalisation by then). I have a UK driving licence which I've held for 5 years and I held a South African driving licence for 5 years prior to that.
Does someone know if it's possible to buy a car in the States without being a resident, and if so what insurance, tax etc I'll need to purchase and what documentation I'll need?
