How to Transfer Ownership of a Vehicle
If you want to transfer ownership of a vehicle to another person then you need to follow certain steps. If you’re selling your car, you must either complete and sign the transfer ownership section of a title certificate and sign a bill of sale or provide another form of proof of ownership and transfer of ownership. For example, you must have a NYS certificate of
Title (not a photocopy) or acceptable proof from another state. If you are buying the vehicle, then you need to sign a bill of sale, pay sales tax or have proof of an exception. In addition,you must register the title or transfer the registrations from another vehicle.
