If you’re looking for a place to park your unregistered car there are a few options available to you. You can park on a public street in a public parking lot or in a private driveway.
If you choose to park on a public street you’ll need to be sure to follow the parking regulations for your area. In most cases you’ll need to park your car in a space that is not blocking traffic or any pedestrian walkways. You’ll also need to make sure you’re not parking in a No Parking zone handicap spot or fire lane.
If you opt to park in a public parking lot you’ll need to pay the posted fee. Be sure to check the posted hours of operation to avoid getting towed or ticketed.
If you have a friend or family member with a private driveway you may be able to park your car there. Just be sure to get permission from the owner beforehand.
Whatever option you choose be sure to have your car insured and up to date on your registration. That way if anything happens while your car is parked you’ll be covered.
