If you are registering your title to the state of California, Shift will initiate the vehicle registration process with the DMV the day of the vehicle purchase and will conclude the process after the 7-day return window of your vehicle has concluded. In most cases, it will take the DMV up to 90 days to process your title.
If you have a loan on the vehicle, the title will be sent to your financial provider, and your lender will have possession of the title until the loan has been paid in full. If you do not have a loan outstanding on your vehicle, the registration will be sent to the address you provided.
If you plan to register the vehicle outside of California, we recommend reviewing your state’s DMV requirements for next steps on transferring your title. Please note, at this time we are only able to provide a temporary registration for the state of California, so please plan accordingly.
