Manufacturers and Dealers

Manufacturers and later sellers must also notify the buyer of the status of the vehicle with the following statement accompanying the transaction: 
 
  
A statement signifying the buyer, lessee or transferee has received and understands the notice must have a space for their signature. 
 
Note: DMV does not require a copy of the statement.
