Titles

A certificate of title is the proof of ownership to a motor vehicle in the state of Pennsylvania.

When you purchase a new motor vehicle, bring a motor vehicle into the state, or at any time the ownership of the motor vehicle changes, you must transfer ownership into your name.

The following is needed to complete the transfer:

For Seller:
– Original PA title
– Proof of ID (valid PA driver’s license or PA Photo ID card)

For Buyer:
– Proof of ID (valid PA driver’s license or PA Photo ID card)
– Proof of Insurance (must be current and match driver license address)
– Purchase price & mileage
– Registration information if transferring your license plate

OUT OF STATE TITLES

Please bring the following to complete your transfer from another state to Pennsylvania:

– Original title
– Proof of ID (valid PA driver’s license with current address)
– Proof of Insurance (must be current and match driver’s license address)
– Vehicle in order to verify VIN (or a VIN tracing)

If you are currently making payments on your vehicle, please bring the following information – Name of financial institution, account number, VIN number, fax number for the title department of the financial institution. We will complete a form to request your title. Once we receive your title, we will call you to complete the transfer. Should the vehicle you are bringing into PA be less than 6 months old, you will need to provide a notarized statement from the dealer indicating sales tax was paid to the previous state.

Business titles: we require proof of your position with the company (not a business card). In addition, if the owner is sending an employee to complete the transfer,we require a notarized letter (on company letterhead) giving authority to employee, signed by owner (Pres, VP, CEO, CFO).
