Leased vehicle registration application requirements are:
• The names of both the lessor and the lessee must be shown. The lessor is required to provide the lessee’s name and address.
• The vehicle must be located in California to be registered here. The lessee’s address must be in California if the lessor’s address is not. An application with a lessee’s address in another state or country is not acceptable.
• The lessor’s name is followed by LSR and the lessee’s name is followed by LSE. The names are not joined by “and” or “or”.
Example: Jay Street Leasing, LSR
John Doe, LSE
• The lessor is the registered owner and must sign the application as such. The lessee’s signature is optional.
A repossession fee is not due for a leased vehicle repossessed by the lessor and then leased to another lessee.
