Bill of Sale

For purposes of selling your vehicle privately, the seller of a motor vehicle may draft his/her own bill of sale as long as it contains the following information:

  • Vehicle information such as, make, year, model, vehicle identification number, and an odometer reading.
  • Buyer information, such as name and address of buyer, and buyer's signature.
  • Seller information, such as name and address of seller, and seller's signature.
  • Selling price and date sold.

We also have an online Bill of Sale (form H-31) that you can complete on-line and print.
