A motor vehicle bill of sale outlines the terms of a transaction between a buyer and seller. Once signed and completed, it serves as evidence of ownership, which can be submitted to the local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The buyer must sign the document after paying the full amount and receiving the certificate of title from the seller to finalize the documentation process.

What is a sale document for a motor vehicle?

The transaction between a purchaser and a vendor for the acquisition of an automobile is documented by a motor vehicle sale slip. The document can be used as evidence of a transaction in the same way that a receipt can.

What Should It Contain?

The details below should be included on the form:
  • Vehicle description (i.e. make, model, year, and body style);
  • Vehicle identification number (VIN);
  • Purchaser's and Vendor's names and addresses;
  • Year, month, and day of the sale;
  • Details concerning the transaction (like the bought price, a trade, or a gift); 
  • and details concerning the guarantee (which is usually sold “as-is, "where-is”).
