If your vehicle is less than 10 years old, you must have an odometer disclosure.
You do NOT need an odometer disclosure for:
- Vehicles not manufactured with an odometer;
- Vehicles 10 years old or older;
- Vehicles that are not self-propelled, such as trailers or campers;
- Vehicles with a manufacturer's gross vehicle weight rating over 16,000 pounds;
- Class 1 ATVs;
- Snowmobiles; and
- Title transfers when at least one owner is staying on the title.
The seller and buyer of a vehicle must complete the odometer disclosure using:
- The space on the back of the title; or
- A Secure Odometer Disclosure form (contact DMV to get this form).
If you bought a vehicle less than 10 years old and the title is lost or destroyed, the seller must get a replacement title. The odometer reading can be disclosed on the back of the new title.
Kilometers or Miles
Do not convert kilometers to miles. Your title will list the reading without showing miles or kilometers.
- Digital odometer display is blank, note that the odometer is "not readable."
- Odometer is stuck and is no longer working, provide the odometer reading and note the mileage is "not actual."
An odometer brand of "not readable" or "not actual" cannot be removed from the title.
Odometer Rolled Over
Provide the odometer reading as it appears and indicate that it has “rolled over.”
For example, if your odometer has space for five digits and the odometer reading went from 99999 to 00003, you would record the odometer reading as "00003" and note that it has rolled over.
Secure Power of Attorney
You can only use a secure power of attorney to disclose odometer if the title is lost, destroyed, mutilated, or held by a security interest holder. Contact DMV
for further information.
