How to Sell a Vehicle in New Mexico?

When selling a vehicle in New Mexico, the seller usually has to fill out Form MVD-10002, Vehicle Title and Registration Application. If the information is not complete, you are required to fill out Form MVD-10009 as well. The same refers to vessel sales.

Important! The form numbers and names mentioned in the instructions for the MVD-10009 are outdated. Form MVD-10032, Boat Certificate of Title and Form MVD-10030, Certificate of Title have been replaced by Form MVD-10002, Vehicle Title and Registration Application and Form MVD-10003, Application for Vessel Title and Registration.

This form is a state-issued document and must be filled out very carefully as any alterations void it. The document consists of two parts: the form itself and the instructions. The information required depends on the item you sell. Usually, you need to include the following items:

  1. The exact sales price of the vehicle or vessel you sell;
  2. A detailed description of the sold item, including the year, make, model, body type, engine number (if applicable), vehicle or hull identification number, license plate or vehicle registration number. If the document is completed to record the sale of a boat, you also need to enter the overall vessel length, vessel beamwidth, and vessel transom depth;
  3. According to the New Mexico laws, anyone who sells a vehicle within the state must fill out a vehicle odometer disclosure section. This section must include the odometer reading of the transferred car, the specification if the indicated reading is the actual mileage, or if there is odometer discrepancy, printed names of both the seller and the buyer, signatures of both parties, and dates the odometer disclosure statement was signed by each. Do not forget that according to the state law, a fraudulent odometer statement may result in a fine, or imprisonment, or both;
  4. If a vehicle or vessel is sold by a dealer, it must include the dealership name and the dealer's license number;
  5. If there is any lien, the document must include the lienholder's name, address, number, file date, and maturity date;
  6. If you are a private seller, enter your name and full address, including state and ZIP-code;
  7. It is also necessary to indicate the name and full address of the buyer;
  8. For the document to be valid, it must be signed by the seller or sellers.

After completing the form, make a copy for your records and give the original to the buyer. The next step you have to take is to remove the license plates. Remember that you have only 30 days to return them to a local Motor Vehicle Division office or to register them with a new car of the same class.

INSTRUCTIONS
1.
This form MVD-10009 Bill of Sale is needed if all required information on the form MVD-10030 Cer-
tificate of Title and/or form MVD-10032 Boat Certificate of Title is not complete (to include the purchase
price, odometer disclosure statement and the assignment to the buyer by the seller including all required
signatures) or if the assignment by owner and all reassignments by Dealer (for use by Dealers only) have
been used or completed.
2.
Seller must then remove the vehicle’s New Mexico license plate (if applicable) under Plate-to-Owner pro-
cedures. New Mexico uses a Plate-to-Owner procedure for transferring ownership of vehicles. Under this
procedure plates are assigned to the owner (seller) rather than the vehicle. When disposing of a vehicle, the
license plate must be removed by the seller before delivery is made to the purchaser. The seller then has
thirty (30) days in which to register the removed plate with another vehicle of the same class or return it to
a local MVD field office for cancellation. If the vehicle has an out-of-state license plate, it is recommended
that the seller remove the license plate(s) and either take them to a New Mexico MVD office for disposal
or return them to the state of issuance for cancellation.
3.
Buyer must take the completed form MVD-10009 Bill of Sale, the form MVD-10030 Certificate of Title
and/or form MVD-10032 Boat Certificate of Title and/or other ownership documents to a local Motor
Vehicle Division field office to have the vehicle or vessel titled and registered in his/her name(s). If the
titling certificate is from another state or if the vehicle or vessel has never been titled in any state, the vehicle
itself must be taken to the MVD field office for visual inspection.
Buyer must title the vehicle or vessel before it can be sold again.
4.
5.
The owner has the responsibility and is on continual and permanent notice of the need to renew by the
expiration date indicated on the vehicle license plate sticker and Certificate of Registration or the vessel
validation decal and Certificate of Number. Failure to renew by the deadline may result in a penalty.
6.
By law the Motor Vehicle Division must be notified within ten days of any address change for all vehicles
owned and your driver license. Obtain form MVD-10284 Change of Address Request from your local MVD
field office or on the internet at:
www.mvd.newmexico.gov
PENALTIES
There is a penalty fee for not titling and registering vehicles or vessels within 30 days.
1.
There is an additional penalty if the unregistered vehicle is driven on New Mexico roads.
2.
There is an excise tax penalty if the vehicle or vessel is not titled within 90 days.
3.
If you have any questions regarding titling and registering vehicles or vessels in
New Mexico, please contact a local Motor Vehicle Division field office. For a list of
MVD offices and locations go to:
