Im assuming somebody is going with you to drive your other back
just use your front plate with bill of sale/title

Just went through this with my Firehawk... Had to get the car home from South Dakota.

Have the seller keep the plate on the car. He seems like a reasonable guy, so just ask him. Then, when you get home mail it back to him. Keep a copy of the signed off title in the car and a copy of the insurance that YOU put on the car. Even if nobody is behind you, it'* the way to do it.

Most insurance companies will automatically cover a vehicle you purchase for 90 days. They tell you 30 days to make you pay more sooner.

I'd call the DMV to be sure, but what I would do is...

Just drive it with no plates, but keep a copy of the signed off title with you in the glove box. Also make sure that you have the insurance binder in your name. If you really want to do things the right way, sign a written reciept with his name and address, your name and address, the VIN, date of sale and sale amount. That a reasonable cop will understand what'* going on. Just have everything consistent and as legal as possible. You'll be fine.

No, no no..

Its a private sale. Get all the signed paperwork and go to the local DMV.
The temp plate costs $20. Much safer then risking the drive.
