Insurance in a different state?

Ok so basically while I'm going to college my parents are paying for my car insurance through State Farm. I want to register my car in Oregon however, being that I live here now and have no plans on moving in the foreseeable future (and technically you're supposed to register your car within 30 days of moving).


Is it possible to register my car in Oregon if my parents are paying for the insurance in another state or would I have to get my own insurance in Oregon? I did some research but couldn't find any definitive answers.



Thanks.

Don't have an accident. If you do have an accident, remember, it was an accident.





I know no answer to this.

It should be an easy call to State Farm to make the change.

So they can still pay for it on their bill with their other 2 cars, all we'd have to do is tell them that the 4Runner is located in Oregon?

Thanks for the input, I guess the best thing to do at this point is just call and ask.

Yup-I do it when I move for the military.
Might change the premium by a few bucks one way or the other...but it should be that easy.

i saw in your build you had cali plates... chances are that depending on which part of portland you live and which part of cali your parents live you might get cheaper rates in or. i am from or. and had all my vehicles registered there and was stationed in san diego. i had to have insurance in cali though. when i switched my truck and wifes car back to or. insurance before a deployment i saved like 200 dollars for 6 months. your problem is going to be the dmv fees. you will have smog because older than 5 years, reg.,plates, and title transfer.. not sure about the fees nowadays but a couple years ago that was 21 for smog 77 title transfer and plates were like 23 and reg was like 56 if i remember right. then if you dont stay in or. after college you will have to do it all over again where ever you go.

I'm planning on staying in Oregon for......a while.


I know the transfer fees will add up, but in the long run it'll be cheaper. My registration is due in March for my California plates, so I figured now is a good time to switch.


Isn't registration good for 2 years in Oregon as well?

I lived in the Big Easy for 8 months, working out of the Michoud NASA installation. Had I moved my registration from Tampa, my rates with SF would've been higher!

Either one of you ever heard of USAA? Happy former SF customer now with USAA...


To the OP, GENERALLY you as a college student are only required to transfer registration if the vehicle is a) registered in your name, and b) you transfer your legal residence (e.g. get a driver's license and voter reg from the new state), otherwise you are not generally considered a "legal resident".

Required minimum coverage is different depending on states. My advise is to just tell the insurance company it is primarily used in Oregon, and if you're going to register in oregon, it'll be cheaper all around to do the insurance in oregon too... especially coming from cali! I was military in Cali, OR drivers license, AZ plates on my truck, and California insurance... LOL

Good ol USAA
