Step 3: Attend your transfer appointment at a TLC facility. After your appointment you will receive instructions to either go to DMV to obtain TC plates, or you will receive an inspection appointment.
Inspection Appointment for Transfer Application: You must have your base request an inspection appointment if an inspection appointment has not already been scheduled or if you need to reschedule your inspection appointment.
If the vehicle owner does not want to appear at the TLC in person, they may choose someone to come to the TLC for them by filling out the Vehicle Power of Attorney Form.
