Compare Insurance Rates in 3 Easy Steps
1. Start Your Quote:
The state doesn't require titles for 1991 model years cars and older. If you're selling such a vehicle, make sure that the bill of sale includes the vehicle's make, year, vehicle identification number (VIN), purchase price, odometer reading, date of sale, and buyer's signature.
If you're selling a vehicle that doesn't have a required title (1992 or newer), you will need the original or certified copy of the vehicle's last registration certificate, as well as a bill of sale that includes the vehicle's make, year, VIN, purchase price, odometer reading, date of sale, and buyer's signature. If the vehicle is nine years old or newer, you'll also need to complete the odometer disclosure statement on the back of the bill of sale.
If you can't find the vehicle's registration, you must complete a Lost or Unavailable Registration Certificate form. Before submitting it, make sure both you and the buyer have signed it.
If you need more assistance, call (802) 828-2000.
No mandatory action is required on your behalf.
The buyer will need a completed bill of sale. If you have difficulty obtaining the state's version, you can easily download a copy of this form from our Bill of Sale page.
