    Carrying Registration

    I have always had the knowledge that a person was required to keep their registration in their car. I think the information from DMV still says that. However, I've had police officers tell me just to make sure I carry it with me, like in my purse or something, and *not* to leave it in the car. This is for California. Does California need to update the law or the DMV their paperwork? What's the legality on this?

    The registration should likely stay in the car. If you carry it with you and somebody borrows your car, they will be driving without registration which is an offense.
