Ask the DMV: State of R.I. Can’t prod leasing corporations into releasing office work

Q: I had been attempting for three weeks to get the documents I want from the lease corporation to get my truck registered in Rhode Island, where I actually have currently moved from Connecticut. They hold some excuse for not dispatching them, but my modern-day Connecticut registration expires this Saturday. What takes place subsequent, or what can I do? The hire corporation is not helpful in any respect. Also, I maintained my Rhode Island license while I lived in Connecticut, where I got my truck. Will this impact as soon as I am capable of getting my registration transferred to Rhode Island?

A: Unfortunately, we do no longer have to manipulate leasing organizations forwarding files to their lessees. They do it all the time as humans flow from kingdom to state, but sometimes it can take some time to show up. If your registration is about to expire in Connecticut, I could advocate that you renew it in Connecticut, so you aren’t using around with an unregistered car. Once you get all of the paperwork, you need to sign in it in R.I.; please do so at your earliest comfort. Find the necessities at our website (www.Dmv.Ri.Gov) for transferring a leased vehicle from out of the nation.

I wish it allows.
