  • I think it varies from state to state. In Ohio, bare minimum she will get a ticket, and the car will be towed. She may even have her license suspended. She would not get her car back without a court date proving that she has legal tags and insurance on that car.

  • They can take the tags and right her a ticket or take her to jail.

  • If she pulled the tabs off another vehicle, that is fraud. If she is stopped, they will see that the dates on the tabs don't match the registration & she will not be allowed to drive the vehicle from the scene. At best, the car will be towed & she will get an expired tabs ticket. At worst, she might face fraud charges.

  • If the other vehicle is registered to her as well, all she has to do is go to the DMV and transfer the tags. It's pretty cheap to do (may even be free, just call and ask). Tags are attached to a car, but registered to the person. That's why you can transfer them.

  • She can get into big trouble.
    Look up the DMV laws for her state.
