Form VTR-346 Texas Motor Vehicle Transfer Notification - Texas

What Is Form VTR-346?

Form VTR-346, Texas Motor Vehicle Transfer Notification, is a legal document you need to complete to inform the authorities you have sold or transferred ownership of a vehicle. A legal notice is necessary because it demonstrates the mutual agreement of parties to enter into a transaction, describes the transferred vehicle, and protects a seller and purchaser in case any disputes or disagreements arise after the sale takes place. Additionally, when you file this document, you relieve yourself from liability for civil or criminal acts that involve the vehicle.
