Can You Register a Vehicle with a Bill of Sale and No Title in Oregon?

If you have purchased a vehicle and it does not have a title, you are able to get a replacement title and transfer it into your name simultaneously. You must provide the completed Form 735-226 (Application for Title and Registration), Form 735-515 (Application for Replacement Title) signed by the buyer and seller, the Bill of Sale, a lien release, and the appropriate title fee. However, if the vehicle is less than ten years old, you must obtain an odometer disclosure. To make it happen, the seller has to replace the title first and then disclose the odometer on the title for you. After that, you will need to apply to transfer the title to you and register the vehicle within thirty days of the purchase.
