I bought myself my first car (a 2000 Honda Civic) this week and wanted to ask whether I can legally drive it or not.
For clarification, I have the signed title in-hand, the current registration, current tags, and have completed the smog check. All that's left for me to do is complete the change of ownership (title transfer) at the DMV, which I know must be done within 10 days of the sale.
What I really want to ask is, is it within my legal boundaries to drive it during these 10 days if everything else is good to go?
The DMV won't be open again until Monday, but I was already considering making a couple trips over the weekend.
Thanks in advance.
I live in California, by the way.
