To complete the form, you will need to fill in the Vehicle Information section entering the year, make and body type of the car; sections for the date of the contract, names, and signatures of the seller and the buyer. Both parties of the transaction sign the appropriate Certification section.

If the car is five years old or less, you can use a generic Vehicle Bill of Sale. The document must be prepared to contain the basic required information with the seller's and buyer's signatures.
