Re: How to you get temp tags in NC?? (HT Chaplain)
I've only been given a paper 30-day temporary tag when buying from a dealer.
Last time I bought from an individual, I just left his tag on the car and kept my paperwork handy. Went to the DMV on the next possible day and turned his tag in and submitted the paperwork to get a new tag. I ordered a personalized tag while there, so they just handed me a regular metal plate off the stack and told me to turn it in when I got the new one.
