You have a vehicle that is
2005 OR OLDER
which was never titled in your name.

Bill of Sale Only Title Process

Solution: If you have purchased or acquired a vehicle and the prior title is not available, or the prior owner is not available, the least expensive option is to use an out of state title process to obtain your title.  If the vehicle is more than 15 years old (2005 or older), the State of Vermont will accept a basic bill of sale to transfer ownership to your name. The other 49 states do not allow for bill of sale to transfer.

  • You do not have to live in Vermont
  • The vehicle does not have to have come from Vermont
  • The bill of sale does not need to be from the last titled owner (can be from anyone)

Vermont issues a registration form of ownership for 15 year old vehicles. Since that is their version of a title, you can obtain this document in your name by paying the registration fee with just a bill of sale, and then present it to your state DMV who will then issue you a legal title in your name, in your state. This Vermont registration title you receive can be used in all 50 states including New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Colorado, New York, Louisiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Indiana, Oregon, Virginia, Nevada, Texas, Iowa, Michigan, Idaho. This process has been used by car collectors, auctions, and brokers for many years to solve difficult title problems.

You will receive a registration / ownership document from the state of Vermont. (Along with valid license plates). Bring these to the DMV / title office in your state to exchange for a title issued to your name, in your state.

The State of Vermont is a reg-only jurisdiction for vehicles 15 years or older, and uses this registration form of ownership. Since all states need to recognize other states legal documents, this can be converted to the title in your home state.

Bonus: In addition to the legal ownership documents, Vermont will also send you a license plate for registration. No insurance is required to obtain the registration documents.

The Bill of Sale Only Title Process
If there has never been a legal title issued in your name you will need to have the legal owner provide you with their legal title document correctly signed over to you. Without the legal title signed over to you, your state’s DMV will not issue you a title even if you have a bill of sale or receipt for the purchase.

Solution: If you have purchased or acquired a vehicle and the prior title is not available, or the prior owner is not available, the least expensive option is to use an out of state title process to obtain your title.  If the vehicle is more than 15 years old (2005 or older), the State of Vermont will accept a basic bill of sale to transfer ownership to your name. The other 49 states do not allow for bill of sale to transfer.
