Hi all new to the forum, have some great stories and trips however I must get some paper work sorted first before I get into the fun stuff. I am trying to get my head around where and how to register what, along with insurance.
I am from New Zealand originally but was living and working in Vail Colorado. So I have an expired CO drivers licence and previous insurance with my last vehicle as it is only for the length of my work visa which is a 6 month period each time. I also have CO plates from my previous vehicle. At the moment I am currently in Vancouver BC, and am looking at going down to Seattle to purchase a car then use it for about 7 or 8 months in CO.
So I need to know when I buy a Car in Washington, do I need to register it there or can I use my CO plates. I will be in CO in about a week after purcahsing a car. The only valid Driver license I have is a New Zealand one although this can be easily changed for a Canadian. but once I get back to CO I will then have a valid CO license. I want to know what I can do in the grey period between WA and CO. As for insurance I will ring my company on Monday and ask them about insurance I have a previous record and also a professional driver with many safety certificates.
