    Picking up yj, have i got my facts straight?

    So in order for me to pick this yj up i need to (from first to last):

    1. Pay the man, get him to sign the uvip and ownership.
    2. I go to dmv to transfer ownership and pay taxes.
    3. I call insurance company and get insurance.
    4. I go to dmv and get a trip permit.

    5. I hot rod around town doing safety and etest.

    6. Fully insure and plate the vehicle.

    My questions are:
    Are my facts straight?

    When does the appraisal have to get done?

    Anything else i should know?

    If i buy the vehicle now how can I get ownership changed over and not to safety and etest and register vehicle as unfit and wait a while to do safety and etest? If i go this route, where does appraisal come in?

    Thanks guys, really appreciate any help i get on this.

    How old is the YJ and who's asking you for appraisal?

    Your steps are mostly right, but you can just give the insurance company the VIN and they'll fax or email you the binder. That way you can register and get a temporary plate in one visit.

    If you just want to transfer it in your name, take the signed ownership, pay your taxes and have it registered as unfit-unplated, but remember most municipalities won't let you park an unplated car in your driveway.

    And lastly, no one says DMV, that's American. It's MTO out here, if you're in Ontario.

    Being 20 years old, the insurance company might ask for an appraisal, but an appraisal isn't normally required when buying just a regular vehicle. The MTO will tell how much tax you'll pay, they won't care for an appraisal.

    Otherwise, yes, the insurance company just needs the VIN and you're off to the races. It's even better if the previous owner did the cert/etest. Then you'd just walk into the MTO once for everything.

    Ok. No current cert/etest. Buying as is. Should pass no problem, passed etest two years aho with flying colours and looks to be able to pass a safety no problem.

    You can't get a trip permit without a safety, yes it sounds stupid but believe me I had this argument with the mto a few years ago.

    Fixed it for you... If you change the vehicle into your name then get insurance etc. they won't give you a temporary plate. If you do it when you register the jeep and the jeep has a "fit" registration they will give you a plate with a "T" sticker. That's good for 14 days.

    Also.... It's not the MTO either. It's Service Ontario.

    And to get a "fit" you need a safety.

    when you go to put the jeep in your name they will ask for appraisal
    in order
    pay for jeep
    get insurance
    get appraisal
    get trip permit (plate with T)
    get e test and safety
    go back to get proper sticker
    a learning experience is one of those things that says, you know that thing you just did...don't do that again.

    If the vehicle was previously registered as fit by the previous owner, you can get a trip permit at the time of registration with the new owner. If it was previously registered as unfit, no bueno on the trip permit for the new owner.

    MTO requires an appraisal for vehicles 20 years and older. As of now, the MTO should not require an appraisal for your 95.

    However, if you are getting Fire and theft and/or comprehensive insurance coverage, your insurance company could ask for an appraisal of they choose to.

    I think that may have changed, when I registered my jeep a few years ago it was on the road and legal but they still wouldn't give me a T unless the girl had no idea what she was doing.

    I just did this on Friday. You can absolutely get a temp sticker if you are going into the service ontario office. As long as the vehicle is coming from a "fit" ownership.

    I went through this buying mine you have to pay for the jeep get bill of sale, then get insurance, then you now need a appraisal for anything over 20 old to put it in your name but there is a way to get a trip permit (plate with T sticker) with it if it was fit in the last owners name. Then get the e test and safety and sticker. I went through this in December but it seems like they change the rules every year.
