CA 10 day sales tax exemption question

I know in CA, if you buyout a lease and sell the car within ten days, you avoid paying sales tax. Until now, I haven’t had to worry about that because I’ve been able to transfer a lease to a used car dealer. But now, manufacturers have disallowed that.

So, my question is, if I buyout the lease and sell to say, CarMax, how do I make sure I don’t pay sales tax? Can that happen quickly enough?

If you have to get it re-titled into your name, this will not work.
