Paperwork When Selling a Car in MaineCompare Car Insurance Rates in 3 Steps
1. Enter Your Zip:Page Overview
When you sell a car, you need two pieces of paperwork:
- The original title if the vehicle is a 1995 model or older (signed over by you on the back to the buyer).
- A bill of sale; remember to make a copy for yourself.
If the title is lost, you'll need to apply for a duplicate.
Notifying the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) is not mandatory, but recommended for your own peace of mind. You can do so by visiting any BMV office and completing a cancellation form and/or surrendering the plates.
You must provide the buyer with a bill of sale. If needed, you can download a copy from our Bill of Sale page.
