Transfer Vehicle Title

Keagan Mcguire

The procedure for transferring a vehicle title depends on the ownership status and the state of vehicle registration.

For a Vehicle Going Through Probate:

  • Obtain an order from the probate court authorizing the vehicle transfer.
  • Gather the certificate of title for the vehicle.
  • Obtain the death certificate of the deceased vehicle owner.
  • Ensure you have your personal photo identification.

For a Vehicle Not Going Through Probate (e.g., Transfer on Death Title):

  • Prepare an affidavit confirming your right to transfer the title.
  • Gather the certificate of title for the vehicle.
  • Obtain the death certificate of the former vehicle owner.
  • Ensure you have your personal photo identification.

Visit the DMV:

  • If the vehicle is not part of the probated estate, the joint owner or the inheritor can visit the DMV and submit the required paperwork for title transfer.

By following these steps and ensuring you have the necessary documents, you can navigate the vehicle title transfer process efficiently, whether it involves probate or not.
