That was my first thought as well.
I would think you'd be fine with any current registration (or proof that you just purchased it.) I would advise against a test launch prior to having your ducks in a row, though.
Then again, state by state enforcement varies (dive shop manager was pulled over in New Jersey for exceeding the speed limit by 3mph, while trailing other cars, with traffic going 25mph faster in other lanes. Explanation? California license plate.)
