If my address to my home is a Kentucky address, can I get my car plated and registered in Tennessee?

My husband and I just purchased a new car last week. We live on fort Campbell, which is split directly in half, half is Tennessee the other half Kentucky. Our address is on the Kentucky side. With that being said, are we able to get the new car plated and registered in tennessee or does it have to be out of Kentucky?

Your address is KY. You live in KY. You must register your car in KY.Source(s):TN resident

Make sure that your car insurance reflects the right address or you can have a headache later on in case something happens.

I assume you are military. A military member, or a dependent who is living with them (spouse / child) can register their car either in their home state of record, or in the state where they are assigned.Living on a base that is in two states, you can register in either one. Register where it is cheaperIf you have not done so, look into USAA auto insurance, they are set up to provide coverage to military members and their families.Thank you and your husband for your service and sacrificeSource(s):33 years in the auto business

It has to be registered where the car is parked at night. So if you drive out of the garage in Kentucky, that's where it has to be filed. Downside of this is fines for not having it registered properly. Risk you can take, or not.Source(s):Insurance Agent
