想請問有關美國轉換駕照和過戶車子的幾個問題

先謝謝所有看過這篇文章和回答的人,

有幾個問題想請教一下版上的前輩們:

我之前曾在紐約念語言學校時考過紐約駕照(尚未過期),

今年秋天我要去UCLA唸書,

剛剛稍微參考了網上其他網友的經驗,

目前確定的是只要考筆試就可以換加州駕照,

不太瞭解的是SSN的部分,

之前在紐約還要去Social Security Office拿不能取得SSN的證明,

爬文有看到有人是拿申請文件去Security Office去作消除的動作,

也有人說不用,

所以在加州是每個DMV的做法都不同,

是這樣子嗎?

如果我是剛到加州,

還沒有住址證明,

會不會受影響?(似乎也有人說不一定會看)

另外,

是不是要等到I-20上所註開學日期後才能去考呢?

(之前在紐約時曾經在開學前去DMV結果說要等到開學後才能考…)

最後一個問題也是最困擾我的,

我哥哥在紐約有車子,

但是因為他要回台灣了,

所以想把車轉給我,

但是我之後是待在加州,

不知道有沒有人可以給個建議要怎麼做比較簡便呢?

我目前知道是可以掛臨時牌,

但是如果要先拿到加州的駕照才能登記車子,

那就不知道要怎麼辦了…

因為我哥哥很可能在我開學前就回國了…

這樣看起來很可能會有銜接上的問題,

還請有相關知識經驗的網友們提供寶貴的意見。

如果能的話,

能否盡量說詳細一點並提供相關的網站,

因為我很怕到時候會出問題,

再次謝謝大家的幫忙和回答!

另外想請問一下有關保險的問題,

紐約的保險應該是不能到加州直接用,

所以應該如何做比較好呢?

    1. Basically, the method to convert your New York license to California license will be similar to what you have experienced when you got your license in New York.

    The only difference will be no driving test required.

    (In other word, every document needed for New York license, you will have to bring it all again for California license.)

    2. No - your license can be only issued by mail.

    3. It is up to you.

    4. The easiest method is to transfer the title in New York first.

    As soon as your brother is offloaded, you can do whatever you want.

    (To be honest - the best way is simply selling the car and get whatever you want in California, because:

    a. California has a higher emission standard. Depending on the situation, you may have to pay a penalty;

    b. It is not cheap to drive cross-country, and it is not cheap to ship the car.)

    5. Insurance is easy. Your New York insurance will still work for a while. As soon as you are settled in California, simply buy or convert your policy.
