An out of annual plane must be inspected by the FAA or an A&P in order to get a ferry permit. There must be log entries that the plane was inspected and safe to ferry. The ferry permit will have a flight plan you must closely adhere to. I never looked into an EXP ferry permit with the builder doing the inspection and log entries, would have to ask the departure FSDO.

I suspect the OP does not need one but I have obtained a ferry permit for an experimental aircraft before. It varies per FSDO as far as personalities go, but generally, itís very easy. You call up, get assigned to an ASI, and they will permit the operation with a boilerplate authorization emailed to you within an hour or two with a date range. The ferry permit will generally mandate an A&P inspect and sign the logbook as safe to fly (ie nothing showing as dangerous on a preflight inspection). Youíll want to be sure your insurance company allows ferry flights or get a one off rider to cover your flight. Prior planning best on each but those are the bases to cover for the legal eagle and insurance friendly way to move an aircraft thatís gone out of date, etc.
