Buying from a Private Seller

When you purchase a car from a private seller, it is your responsibility to complete the auto title transfer; you have 40 days to file for your title. Bring the following to the Office of Motor Vehicles office:

  • The current title certificate, assigned to you by the previous owner and notarized. The title must contain:

  • Date of sale.

  • Selling price.

  • Both buyer and seller signatures.

  • Notarized bill of sale, if the title certificate does not contain the above listed information.

  • Odometer Disclosure Statement (Form DSPMV 1606), if the car is less than 10 years old.

  • Copy of your ID or driver's license.

  • Proof of Louisiana car insurance.

  • Payment for any applicable title transfer fees.
