Selling, Donating, or Gifting a Vehicle


When you sell, donate, or gift your vehicle:

  • Sign either the back of the title or a Bill of Sale;
  • If you had a loan, make sure the lienholder signed the front of the title*;
  • Write the odometer reading on the back of the title; and
  • Notify DMV within 10 days.
    • We will note on your record that you sold the vehicle, but you will remain listed as the owner until the buyer transfers the title.

*You cannot sell, donate, or gift your vehicle if you have a loan on it and the loan is not paid off.
