Nope... just a traffic signal electrician.
But the OP was asking what the deal is... and if he doesn't take care of it, the buyer is going to be stuck with a turd sandwich.
It's fine to come to an agreement with the buyer that he will cover the back registration and fees... but it's a shitty thing to do to sell it without disclosing that and about how much it will be.
The only way out would be to sell it to a buyer out of state (and I've heard that the DMV is still able to block the new registration until fees are paid) or to someone who will use it on a farm/ranch and won't need to tag it.
But definitely send in the "notice of sale" form... if the buyer can't/won't register it, it'll remain in Dad's name and if the buyer takes it out on the road and gets into an accident, they'll be coming for Dad.
