Andy at Tesla (very helpful, thanks Andy!) has informed me that in Virginia, Tesla will register the car for me. Unfortunately I can't yet order plates...because that requires a title number...which requires registration first. So I wait!

I hit 30 days waiting yesterday. I stopped driving the car. I have been trying to get an answer from Tesla about status/new piece of paper/ receipt? I want tags. It worries me to drive with the little piece of paper now. I was stopped already because of it. No ticket but the state trooper gave me a hard time as I have no receipt etc. Indiana gives 30 days, and I don't know what will happen now without plates.
Seems like it took care of it for some people in Michigan. For me I have to register the vehicle my self, they sent me the papers by mail that I need to take to the secretary of state.

What about transferring plates fom car you sell prior to purchasing. Who handles that?
Now that I've been through the process, I can confirm that Tesla did register my car in Maryland. When I picked it up in Rockville I signed the necessary documents. About 3 weeks later the plates and registration were delivered via FedEx by the MVA. In the interim I taped the paper document Tesla provided to the license plate frame under clear tape to waterproof it. When the standard plates arrived I immediately put the online application for personalized plates BYE ICE. I expect those any day.
