Yes, getting a new title (which you need to register it) can be a real pain. To avoid multiple trips to the DMV and waiting in line forever, the best advice is to call the DMV (or email them), explain the situation, make sure that you have every
document you'll need, and have them tell you all the fees (and payment types they accept) involved before you bother to go stand in line.
