I live about 40 minutes from the Tacoma port so I'll be picking up in person and driving home. I thought about catching the bus to the port or getting a ride and stopping by the department of licensing on the way home. Do you think having fresh customs import paperwork would be good enough to show that I recently got the vehicle and am on the way to the DOL or would I need to go to the DOL first to get a trip pass? I'm guessing I can't get a trip pass without first getting all the paperwork done at customs. I want to avoid having to drive a vehicle there or inconveniencing a friend by driving me around. It isn't a big deal when you buy a normal used vehicle but one of these comes without any sort of prior registration.
