You are here:

Mexico/Driving back to US with expired license plate


Hello Mike,
we (German) live in Mexico since 2 years and moved from the US with a car permit attached to a FM3 visa.
Since then we have received a company car and do not need our personal car anymore, therefore we want to sell it.
We know we cannot sell it in Mexico and have to drive back across the border.
The question is if we can do it because the license plate expired since then and we dont have any option to renew it and will we have any problems trying to sell the car with an expired license plate.
Thank you very much for your help

Dear Mike.
