VEHICLE TITLE INFORMATION:   (DOL link)

All motorized vehicles that will be used on public roads, including forest service roads and beaches, in Washington State must be licensed. If you purchase your vehicle from a Washington State dealer, the dealer will transfer the title for you.

If you purchase a vehicle from a private party, you will need to transfer the title yourself.

You will need:

  1. A title, dated and signed by all registered and legal owners; or a notarized Affidavit of Loss.
  2. Documentation of the purchase price.
  3. An odometer statement on vehicles less than 10 years old.
  4. A current emission test that is no more than 1 year old (check ahead to see if required)
  5. A current Washington State Driver's License or Identification Card. With some exceptions, the registered owner must be 18 years of age or older.
  6. Cash, check or money order. 
  7. Credit/Debit Card (fee applies).
Please note: Washington State titled vehicles must be transferred within 15 calendar days after purchase day to avoid monetary penalties. A $50 penalty is charged on the 16th day with an additional $2.00 charge per day thereafter until a maximum $125 penalty is reached.
