on moving into the Commonwealth

change your vehicle to Pennsylvania.
1.Proof of Ownership: Pennsylvania requires that out-of-state
titles be surrendered to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles upon application for a Pennsylvania
registration.This must be the original
title and not a photocopy or fax.If the
vehicle is financed or leased, the lien holder or the leasing company will have
the title--see ***below.Some states
have “transferable” registration cards for vehicles instead of titles.
2.Verification of VIN# and/or Gross Weight: You
can do one of several things. 1) Bring the vehicle with you so we can look at
the numbers directly on the vehicle. 2) Get a legible tracing of all applicable
numbers by using paper and a pencil or crayon (however this doesn’t work on
newer vehicles). 3) Have a Pennsylvania Mechanic or State Trooper fill out an MV41 to verify the VIN and/or GVWR. For trucks, trailers and
motorhomes we need an approximate empty weight as well. ALL
NUMBERS MUST BE READABLE!
3. Proof of Pennsylvania Insurance: Insurance

faxed, it must be faxed to us at the above numbers from the insurance agent
