Dealers Handbook in Missouri

  • The Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR) does not have an official printed handbook for motor vehicle dealers, but there is a dealer information page with links to several valuable resources. If you're interested in selling motor vehicles in the state of Missouri, this is the page for you. A few of the topics:
  • Dealer Operating Manual: This downloadable PDF file contains information about financial responsibility requirements, franchise agreements, inspection of records, lemon law refunds, and the proper use of dealer license plates.
  • Electronic Sales Filing for Dealers: This short PDF file explains how to use the DOR electronic filing system to comply with the state's Notice of Sale (NOS) law.
  • Titling Manual: Turn to this PDF document for information about how to obtain a legal certificate of title for the vehicles you are selling.
