Vehicle Title Transfer

Do I have to transfer an out of state vehicle title at the currency exchange or can I go to the DMV?

I need to transfer the title for my big ugly van from Oklahoma to here. The DMV web site says 65 for title transfer and 75 for plates. Thats 140 bucks. I call the damned currency exchange and bitch tells me 198 bucks. WTF!!!??? Why?

What are my alternatives. I need to save up for tire money here. LOL!!!

go to the DMV, currency exchanges charges those rates so you dont have to wait in live for ever at the DMV.

if i was you DMV it.

I don't know what place I hate more, the DMV or the Currency Exchange, both those places make me cringe.

Maybe you have to tranfer title and apply for a new one.

Isn't that what transfering a title is? Getting a new one?

Not with our Secretary of State. Title transfer could possibly mean verification of authenticity so that the title can be issued in the State of Illinois. Then you have to pay for the new title.

I just called the DMV 800 #

65 for the title transfer
78 for the plates and registration
25 for taxes

168 bucks. But the closest full service DMV to me that will do this in 99th and King Drive rite smack dab in the middle of the beautiful south side of Chicago. Lovely.

30 Extra bucks to do this same thing at the currency exchange.

Go to the secretary of state's office. The Currency Exchange charges more for their fees. They have to make their money too. And if you can find a SOS Express office in your area, even better. The lines are usually shorter there.

They have gotten faster now. You should be in and out of there in less than an hour. Just remember, no credit/debit cards, they only accept cash or checks. If you give the state a check, it takes them a little over a month to cash it, slow bastards, so I just bring cash.

Good point. I went to renew my bike plates with debit card in hand. McDonalds takes debit cards and the SOS office doesn't? Good thing it was in my building, just went back with my checkbook.

Last time I was at the DMV, they took Mastercard. Of course I don't have a Mastercard though.

Just wondering but that's fine. I can have my aunt do it when she gets home, thought you were making a call after the e-mail.

If you have a resource that can find out then why am I calling all over the place for you?

Don't know where you are on the South Side, but in Orland Park there's a Secretary of State's office you could probably get that done at, and there's usually a 5 minute wait. They also do licenses, plates/stickers.

I have 5 resources, I thought you'd be faster. Didn't know you where calling all over the place, you said a cop buddy, one person?
