Buying a new car is such a fun experience! But the car purchase really isn’t complete until the vehicle is titled in your name! It can make for a really unpleasant experience if you’re pulled over and unable to produce proper documentation proving that the car is yours. Ensure that all documentation is in order by titling your car before driving it.
Documentation to Title a Vehicle in Your Name
At MVD Express, transferring a vehicle title to your name is simple! You’ll need to bring in documentation to facilitate the transfer, including:
- A valid ID or driver’s license
- Two proofs of New Mexico residency (lease agreement, PNM bill, etc.)
- Bill of Sale (if purchased from a private dealer), Dealers Invoice (if purchased from a dealership) or Lien information (if purchased using a bank loan
- Liability insurance proof ($25,000 for bodily injury to one person, $50,000 for bodily injury to two people, $10,000 for property damage)
- A passed emissions test
Stop in to any of our locations to transfer a vehicle title into your name. We’ll have you in, done and on your way in no time at all! Then, you can back to scheduling that root canal you’ve been putting off…or start your taxes for this year!
