Do I have to wait for plates/registration sticker to start driving? I drove for a little while about 2 years ago, but leaned very quickly that an F150 wasn't a good Uber vehicle. I just traded the truck in for a car that gets much better mileage so I want to get back into driving on the side. The dealership said it would be about a month before I get my permanent plates and registration sticker. Is there any way to drive before then, and if so, can I get the vehicle inspection and DFW sticker before I get the plates?
