A car's title is a document that establishes the owner of a registered vehicle, while a car's registration allows the car to be driven on public roads.  The two are not mutually exclusive and can be obtained separately.  While it is odd to have that long of a period between title and registration, it is possible.  

Customer
it means you can have a car registered and have registration date before a car title with a date later that registration date, right?
Customer
Will it possible have a car registered before the car still in the manufacture?
Customer
Or at the dealer shop?

That is correct.  For example I buy a used car and go straight to the DMV with my bill of sale and signed title in the old owner's name.  I register my vehicle so i can get plates and insurance.  I then intend to mail off the old signed title (showing the transfer) and get a new title in my name.  Something comes up and I forget and don't mail it off for another few months.  In the meantime, I have a registered vehicle with plates that is still not technically titled in my name.  I later remember to mail off the title and get a new one and the new title date is a few months after registration.

HarperW, Expert

?

Customer
The car has produce date at June 2021
Customer
But the registration date is at 01/03/2021

HarperW, Expert

May I ask what sort of car it is?

Customer
This is 2022 Acura MDX SH-AWD
img

HarperW, Expert

It is possible if the car was special ordered from the factory that it was registered at some point before leaving the factory and titled after it was transferred to the original owner.

May I ask the genesis of these questions?  Has this discrepancy caused you some disturbance, legally speaking?

Customer
I just confuse this is not a special order, and it is used car, but this car have a registration date way earlier than the car manufacture day, which didn’t not mentioned by the dealer

HarperW, Expert

I cannot say for sure, only a best guess.  But if it is not causing you any problems, I would not worry about it.  There are plenty of reasons why the registration is dated before the title date.
