Do not buy or sell a vehicle without a title. Oklahoma requires a properly signed title when transferring vehicle ownership. Sellers will need to order a duplicate title before they attempt to sell their vehicle. The seller does not need to produce a registration document; the buyer won't need it to title and register the car.
Aside from the title, the most important document regarding a used vehicle sale will be the notarized bill of sale.
If you don't have a contract for a vehicle purchase or if you need a form to use as a bill of sale, a notarized copy of Form 722-1, the Declaration of Vehicle Purchase Price, will be required.
If you are unable to access the form from the OTC website, DMV.org provides a basic bill of sale form that you may use in place of Form 722-1.
Remember, whether you're buying a new or used vehicle, and whether from a dealer or a private party, you'll still need to go through the same registration and titling processes.
As stated above, you 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.
