Question: What Documents Do You Need When Selling A Car??

Essential paperwork

  • Write a receipt and make two copies – one for you and one for your buyer.
  • Complete and sends the V5C to the DVLA.
  • Give the new owner the car’s handbook, the keys (including any duplicate sets), the service logbook plus any receipts you have, and the MOT certificate if the car is over three years old.

Do you need a v5 to sell a car?

Lost your V5C form or simply don’t have one? It’s actually entirely possible (and 100% legal) to sell a car and transfer ownership without a V5 document. Once a car has been sold or changed ownership, you can also notify the DVLA without needing the V5 if it’s unavailable. In fact, you can now do that online.

Do you have to notify the DMV when you sell your car?

In most cases, you must provide a clear title that is signed by the seller. The seller’s signature releases his ownership of the vehicle and it can then be transferred to you. In many states, you will be required to pay sales tax on the car before you receive the current registration and, later, the license plates.

What DMV forms are needed to sell a car?

A Motor Vehicle Bill of Sale should include the following:

  1. Year, Make, and Model.
  2. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
  3. Date of Transaction (Sale Date)
  4. Sale Price.
  5. Names/Addresses/Signatures of both Buyer and Seller.
