Delay getting title for 2012 purchased from a CA dealer

Hi everybody. A couple of weeks ago I bought a 2012 from a dealer in Oakland, CA. I am having the car shipped to my home in British Columbia. I have all the documentation except the title. The dealership says they are waiting for their DMV person, who comes in only once a week but wasn’t there last week. Apparently, nobody else knows about getting the title transferred to me.

Can somebody from California, or somebody with experience buying a CA car that will be registered out of state, explain the process? It’s not as simple as signing the back of the existing title? It’s been a frustrating wait.
