I am curious if we are the only state that doesn't get temporary plates when we buy a car from a dealer?

Every other state I've been to has temp plates. It seems totally idiotic to not give us temp plates for many reasons, but mainly dud to identification by law enforcement. Also our state is like the most hard-ass when it come to anything that has an engine...

I thought it was weird too. But then again, I've never seen any other state that puts your registration paperwork in a little sticker thing on the front window either....

I realize that. But what good does that do for law enforcement? They would have to pull you over just to see that thing...

We don't have Temp. plates in Mississippi. You just wear the dealer tag until you go down to the Tax Collector and pick up your plate. You can get the standard tag immediately when you go and pick it up, or if you order like a College Tag or something you just gotta wait for it to come in the mail. Below is the rule in MS reguarding how long you have to purchase your tag:

You have seven (7) working days beginning with the next day after purchase.Thereafter, a 5% penalty will apply per month up to 25%

I have a NC temp tag(basically a reg tag) until my special collegiate tag comes in. I thought it was kinda weird.
