California carpool sticker for used 2017 leaf (green sticker) applying new sticker (red?)

Hi, I searched the websites and the forums, can't find the answer for my specific question.
I'm looking to buy a used 2017 Leaf with green sticker (which is expired), I believe the original owner didn't bother to renew the Red sticker in 2018. And this is the problem for me, if he applied it, I can apply for transfer new owner.

If I buy this car, can I still apply for the red sticker or other sticker ? The model and year of the car is an eligible clean air car.

Let me know, Thanks!

Nope. Only cars never stickered before.

Hello, thanks for the reply!

I remember if you buy a car with red sticker, you can "transfer" to the new owner.
The sticker comes with car not owner.

Just that I don't find the VIN number on the prior-2017 green sticker list which will expire on 2019/01.

Trying to contact DMV but it's taking forever !
