    Selling a Vehicle

    You need to provide:

    • An assigned and notarized title. Include odometer reading if the vehicle is less than ten years old.
    • A lien release, if applicable.
    • Either a notarized bill of sale or an invoice if the title does not contain signatures, date of sale and vehicle price. A full description (make, model, year) of the vehicle must be included.

    After the sale, be sure to remove the vehicle's license plates.

    Notice of Transfer and Release of Liability

    You need to surrender the license plates to your local Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) and complete an online Notice of Vehicle Transfer.

    Bill of Sale

    The OMV strongly recommends retaining a bill of sale for your records, regardless if it's required or not. You can easily download this document from our Bill of Sale page.
