Ok, so I am and early signer of the pledge way be in the low ougts.
Now the 20K threshold of pledgers has been met, I am preparing for the move, and one of the first things I want to do is get my vehicle registered there.
The problem is, I think you need to already have a place that you are living in NH in order to register one's car there.
A little bit of a chicken and egg situation; so, how do I get my car registered there, which is what I want to do first while I am looking for a place to live??

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Registration is done at the town level, so yeah, you'd need to have a place of residence before registering your car. But may I ask, Why do you want to register your car first? Nothing else depends on it, and you save a bit of money (extend your time until registration renewal) by waiting until you *have* to register.

Because I intend to move there shortly, and I am going to use the car to get around there looking at the places I might want to live at.
It is not currently registered and it would make no sense to register it here where I live, only to re-register it a month later.
Any actual ideas, suggestions on what I could/should do?

I see. If it's not registered where you are, then you are in a bit of a pickle. I don't see any way around obtaining residency before registering your vehicle. You provide proof of residence when you register. Perhaps you could do a short-term rental and use that address as your "residence" for registration purposes. Proof of residence typically requires a rental agreement, utility bill, or piece of mail received at your current physical address.

Yes, a pickle I have observed, and am trying to figure out a way to resolve.
Your idea did occur to me, I just don't quite know how to do that economically.
Is there some FSP pre-move organization that might be able to help me with this?
It would seem that this problem, or similar ones, would be a recurring thing for FSP immigrants.

There are "Porc manors" where you can rent rooms at varying lengths of time. I would recommend contacting Mark Warden (www.porcupinerealestate.com) and going from there.
