1. Enter Your Zip:
Used vehicles through private parties are sold "as is" in Connecticut, with no warranty or guarantee of any type.
You must complete two pieces of paperwork when selling your car:
After selling your vehicle, you'll need to remove the license plates and turn them in to a DMV office. There, you'll be given a receipt, which you'll need for removing the vehicle from your town's property tax assessment list.
If you can't visit an office, send the plates to:
60 State St.
Wethersfield, CT 06161
Include a letter explaining you want the plates canceled. And be sure to enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope so the DMV can send you the receipt.
You'll need a bill of sale when selling your vehicle. For convenience sake, you can easily download one from our Bill of Sale page.
