You will need these documents to register your car after you purchase it:
- Signed bill of sale
- Title, signed over to you, if the vehicle is 15 years old or newer
- Insurance proof
- Registration application and excise tax receipt (from your town office)
If the seller cannot find the title, they will need to apply for a duplicate title.
A bill of sale is necessary for registering and titling your vehicle. You can, if needed, conveniently download a blank copy of this document from our Bill of Sale page.
