I didnt want to get the temporary but the owner told me that he wont let me drive it away unless i either tow it or get a temporary.. i figured the $15 permit is a lot cheaper than driving over in our F350 and back..
I called to double-check today and its because its over 21 years old, the MTO doesnt have on record how much the average price a vehicle like that is worth. And in Canada when you register a used vehicle, you pay taxes on either
-the ammount you paid for the vehicle
-the average market value of the car
This is determined by wichever is higher. So they need me to get an appraisal to show what the estimated market value would be to register it in my name. Seems like an odd reason; ive always gotten taxed on the ammount I paid. I called a shop that does appraisals, it will cost me $45, all they need is my ownership.
Quick question- in Ontario you have 6 days from the time of purchase to go to the MTO and register the truck. What would happen if I didnt get it registered then, say events forced me to wait say a month? Would they let me register or would the truck get impounded and me fined?

In fact, I wouldn't have even called the MTO. I would have just bought the car right out, got insurance on it, and THEN talk to them. Then again, does Canada have options for insurance or is it all government?
Thats what i wanted to just do, going to the MTO is like going to hell and back, haha..
