To buy and sell a vehicle, a Nevada motor vehicle bill of sale is drawn to show that the transaction is legal and to prove that there has been a transfer of title of that vehicle. This document is essential for the registration of the vehicle and must be approved by authorized (Notary) persons in cases where the vehicle has been revamped. It is also a requirement that the parties involved in the transaction imprint their signature on this form.

Mileage Declaration Form (also known as an Odometer Disclosure Statement (Form 1545)): This statement is to be submitted alongside the bill of sale and other documents for the registration of vehicles that are under 10 years old or weigh below 16,000 pounds.

Registering a Vehicle

Any person who just acquires a motor vehicle is expected to register it within thirty (30) days of acquisition. This is the same in the case of a person who just became a resident of Nevada and intends to move his/her vehicle into the state. This registration lasts for a year, and renewals can be done online or by visiting any Nevada DMV self-service kiosk.  To renew physically, they are to first make an appointment at any of the locations below: Henderson, Reno, Las Vegas, and Carson City.

Registration Centers

To register for the first time, vehicle owners are required to do so on the DMV website.
