Paperwork When Selling a Car in Oklahoma
Compare Insurance Rates in 3 Easy Steps
1. Start Your Quote:
When you sell your car, you'll need the following paperwork:
- A notarized title, signed over to the new owner.
- A bill of sale or Declaration of Vehicle Purchase Price ONLY if the purchase price is not listed on the title.
If the title is lost, apply for a duplicate before trying to sell your car.
Though not mandatory, Oklahoma Tax Commission officials strongly suggest removing the bottom stub of the title (known as Oklahoma Certificate of Title Tear-Off Notice of Transfer Tab) and bringing it to your local tag office. An agent will then update your records on the computer. This will protect you against liability.
Tear-off tabs are only titles dated 2006 or newer. If you have an old title, without a tear-off tab, you can instead submit a Notice of Transfer of Ownership of a Vehicle.
As stated above, the buyer will need either a bill of sale or a Declaration of Vehicle Purchase Price to register and title your vehicle. You can, if needed, conveniently download a bill of sale from our Bill of Sale page.
