Can You Purchase Out-of-State Vehicles?

Yes, many drivers buy vehicles from other states if they find a certain model that they don't have close to them or a deal they can't turn down. Our used car dealer near San Jose, CA has sold many vehicles to out-of-state car buyers, so we know how to make this process quick and easy no matter where you live.

What to Consider Before Buying a Vehicle from Another State

Car sales vary from state to state, and there can be quite a bit different between buying a car in California and buying a vehicle from the state you live in. Our Volkswagen dealer near Santa Clara, CA is happy to go over those details and make sure you understand everything before setting out on your search and purchase with us.

Sales Tax

When buying an out-of-state vehicle, you pay sales tax based on where you'll register it. You can fill out an auto financing application and include the sales tax in that so that you have one simple monthly payment to budget for.


You need proof of insurance before purchasing a vehicle in California, so be sure you have that before you pick it up. Vehicle deliveries have their own separate insurance for the delivery process.


Check your state's laws on vehicle registration for vehicles bought out of state to be sure there are no hiccups. We provide a one-time registration exemption voucher for California vehicles so that you can travel on state highways on your way back home.
