hi we had much the same problem, although a little different. we sold our car to my father in law to raise funds for bankruptcy. he then "lent" us back the car as we cant get around without one. we then found out after transferring the car over with the sale, that we wouldnt be able to get insured with the car not in our names. spoke to the or, who said as long as my father in law had a copy of a reciept of sale, showing he had paid for it, there was no problem in transferring the car back into our name.
so you can still have the car registered in your name , as long as you can provide proof that your partner is the legal owner!
hope that helps a bit!!
