We bought a car and can't remember which documents are supposed to go in the glove compartment. I know the insurance papers, but what about the 1/2 page document that shows ownership with a paid stamp? We also received a wallet sized card - what about that?

TIA

You carry the wallet sized card that came with the window sticker. Registration
You carry the Smog paper that came with the smog sticker. Smog Inspection
You carry your insurance card and booklet that tells you what to do in an accident and who to call. Insurance proof.
Carry an old digital camera to take pictures at an accident.

Anyway thats what I carry.

You NEVER carry your title which is called a Factura here. It should be locked up somewhere as it is very very hard to replace.

The wallet sized card should be in your car. Plus your insurance papers. The decals showing you have paid that years registration and had the smog test should be on a window.

Carry driver license on you.

For foreign plated cars carry a notary certified copy of TIP and recent temp car as well.

Husband is concerned that both our names are on the factura but the little wallet card only shows my name because it is too small for both names. Is this a problem?

I've been told that is normal.
