    Looking to buy a 26 foot box truck in Texas and drive it back to Arizona to register it with the department of motor vehicles.. Can I purchase a temporary plate to drive it home from the used truck dealer or will I need something else?? I’m also not sure if I need fuel permit for passing through another state?? The truck has a GVWR of 25,950.. Can someone who has knowledge of this, tell me what I need to drive this home without breaking any laws so I can register it.. Thanks in Advance..

    A dealer provides temp plate.

    Put not for hire on the side and roll home?

    I drove my truck home from El Paso non stop with only the tag they gave me in the front window. I never ever stopped once (maybe a fuel stop and a whiz or 2). I had no authority and I was not for hire so....

    > 26,000# doesn't require permits. It's like driving a U haul. the dealer temp tag is enough to get you home
