What is a Bill of Sale for a Car in Oregon?

When buying or selling a vehicle in Oregon, a bill of sale is an important document used as a record of the transaction, and for proper title and registration.

The Oregon Driver and Motor Vehicle Services Division (DMV) provides both a printable version and an online fillable version of the Vehicle Bill of Sale (Form 735-501). While Oregon does not require a bill of sale in all cases, it does accept the document as proof of ownership when you're completing the title transfer or registration of a vehicle. A bill of sale is also a good way to record your purchase or sale, which can protect the seller in the event that the buyer does not register the vehicle or abandons it at a later date.

Oregon Bill of Sale Requirements

An OR bill of sale should include the following information:

  • Printed names and addresses of both buyer and seller.
  • Date of purchase.
  • Vehicle make, title number, and year.
  • License plate number.
  • Vehicle identification number (VIN).

The buyer must apply for a title within 30 days of the sale, or face a late title transfer fee of $25. If the buyer does not apply for a new title within 60 days of the sale, the late title transfer fee is $50.
