Process for Transfer of Title and Registration of Vehicle

Overview: The transfer of title and the registration of a vehicle are two (2) seperate processes, although, for efficiency purposes, the two processes have been combined. The process for Transfer of Title and for Vehicle Registration is completed by submitting particular requirements to the Department of Transportation and by completing DOT Form 101.

Steps to Transfer Title and Register a Vehicle

A) Submit to the Department of Transportation (DOT), via email, a legible scan/copy of the State MVA Certificate of Title showing no existing security interest(s) exist against the vehicle (a copy of the front and back of the MVA Certificate of Title is required). 

B) Submit to the DOT a scan/copy of a driving record report for the license-holder obtained from the State MVA going back five (5) years (or state maximum if defined)

C) Submit to the DOT two (2) color photographs of the automobile to be registered:
1) a picture from the side containing the full body of the vehicle, and
2) a picture of the VIN Number from the sticker placed within Driver-side Door
(NOTE: photographs and documents that are blurred, over-exposed or are otherwise indiscernible will be rejected and the title transfer / registration process will be suspended until an acceptable replacement is submitted and approved by one of the DOT staff)

D) After completing Steps A, B and C, obtain from the DOT Form 101. Complete and return Form 101 to the Deputy Governor (see below for email address). Once Form 101 has been fully processed you will receive a notification from the Registrar with a link to the recorded Form 101.
