My lease ends on December 7th and the registration is due on December 8th. The car is using personalized plate (registered to me not the car).
Do I have to pay the registration fee when I return the car on December 7th (1 day before it’s due)?
What proof will yeh dealer give me when I return the car, in case DMV messed up and pursued me for the registration?
EDIT: to clarify, I am referring about the registration fee, not personalized license plate fee. For the personalized license plate, it is tied to me and not the car per CA. I can fill out Form Reg 17 to retain the plate.
