    No he does not have to be present.

    He is   G I V I N G   you a car, he isn't "GIFTING" you a car.

    Fancy made up words are only for the politically and socially correct wannabe crowd.

    You should b able to do it on your on as long as your brother properly signs and gives you the title and a bill of sale indicating it is a gift.  You will need to get a smog certificate and show proof of insurance.

    He doesn't need to be present.

    He needs to sign the title to you and you need to register the car.

    If he doesn't have the title, he has to do a duplicate title and transfer.
