Some states can be more annoying than others. I bought in NY and since the car was put on a truck carrier at the dealership, no temp tags were asked for. The idea is that the car never drives on NY streets. I did not pull temp tags in Colorado but that would have made things simpler in my specific case, since I had to drive the car to my little town from the car delivery point. My county says that temp tags may only be obtained for a car that is physically in Colorado but they do not check and did not ask. I was prepared to lie if asked.
