Visit the DMV or use NeedTags.com and pay your title transfer fees. You can do this without needing a smog check. It will help you avoid late fees. The title transfer process will not be completed until you pass the smog inspection, but you'll get the vehicle registration (incomplete) in your name. Once the smog test is completed, the test results will be sent to the DMV electronically and the DMV will complete the title transfer process at that time.
