Can You Register a Vehicle with a Bill of Sale and no Title in Oregon?

If you have purchased a vehicle and it does not have a title, you are able to get a replacement title and transfer it into your name simultaneously. You must provide the completed Form 735-226 (Application for Title and Registration), Form 735-515 (Application for Replacement Title) signed by the buyer and seller, the Bill of Sale, a lien release, and the appropriate title fee. However, if the vehicle is less than ten years old, you must obtain an odometer disclosure. To make it happen, the seller has to replace the title first and then disclose the odometer on the title for you. After that, you will need to apply to transfer the title to you and register the vehicle within thirty days of the purchase.

An Oregon Vehicle Bill of Sale contains the following information:

  1. Vehicle description. It is sufficient to identify the vehicle, so state its plate number, year, make, identification number, and title number;
  2. Buyer's personal information. Indicate the name and address of the buyer;
  3. Date of the transaction;
  4. Seller's printed name (business name) and signature. The form can be signed by the individual or authorized representative of the business. It does not require the signature of the purchaser.

Does a Vehicle Bill of Sale have to be Notarized in Oregon?

There is no legal requirement to notarize this form. The buyer does, however, have the responsibility of notifying the DMV of the transaction within 10 days and applying for a title within 30 days from the date of purchase.
