This document may be required to complete the transfer if the Title for the car you are selling was issued before the year 2000. If you are selling your vehicle to an out-of-state resident, do not forget to inform your County Clerk's office about the sale and provide them with the name and state of the buyer. You will have to return your Kentucky license plate as well.
