Form TR-39 "Vehicle Ownership Transfer Agreement" - Kansas

What Is Form TR-39?

Form TR-39, Vehicle Ownership Transfer Agreement is an official form used in the State of Kansas to provide buyers with temporary proof of purchase and permit to operate a described vehicle without an officially issued title or registration. Only licensed Kansas dealers have the right to offer buyers this form instead of providing them with the Kansas Certificate of Title or Manufacturer's Statement/Certificate of Origin immediately during a car transfer. The issuing department of Form TR-39 is the Kansas Department of Revenue. The document was last revised on August 1, 2015.

Another document that allows buyers to receive a temporary 60-day permit is Kansas Form TR-39A, Electronic Title Service Agreement. It is used when the seller has a lien or encumbrance on the described vehicle with the Electronic Title. In some cases, you need to use Form TR-312, Vehicle Bill of Sale during the car transfer as well. It is necessary in cases where the owner wishes to transfer ownership of antique cars (vehicles that are at least 35 years old) and as an additional document containing important information about the sale of a car.

Kansas Vehicle Ownership Transfer Agreement

Kansas Form TR-39 is a simple one-page form. It requires the following information:

  1. Date of purchase/delivery of the described vehicle;
  2. Description of the vehicle, including the year, make, style, and vehicle identification number;
  3. Information about the buyer or buyers: the name and full address with state and ZIP code;
  4. Information about the seller, including the name, dealer number, and full address;
  5. Signatures of the seller and buyer with that day's date.

Fill out this document in two copies. You must hand the original to the buyer and keep the copy for your records.

By providing the buyer with the Kansas Vehicle Ownership Transfer Agreement, you state that you have either a valid Kansas Certificate of Title or Manufacturer's Statement/Certificate of Origin for the sold vehicle. You are obliged to deliver the certificate of origin within 30 days from the date indicated in this Agreement. If you possess a Certificate of Title, you have 60 days to properly assign and deliver it to the buyer. These timeframes include weekends and holidays. You must deliver these documents in person or by registered or certified mail.

Buyers often use this form when they drive with a temporary 60-day permit. Another situation that may require Kansas Form TR-39 is if you drive temporarily with a Kansas license plate registered for another vehicle. If you owned a registered vehicle with a Kansas license plate and disposed of this vehicle, you can use the old license plate to drive a newly acquired vehicle if it is of the same registration type.

A buyer can only use an old license plate for 60 days. In both cases, a properly filled out Form TR-39 must be in the vehicle. If the 60-day period passes and the buyer still hasn't applied for the title and registration, the Kansas Department of Revenue will apply penalties and interest.
