Title Information
  • 30-day tags may be purchased from the License Bureau prior to transferring a certificate of title.
  • All liens on the face of a certificate of title must be cancelled by the Clerk of Courts in any county in Ohio.
  • When you sell your motor vehicle, MAKE SURE the buyers name and address, the purchase price, and mileage information are filled out in full before your signature is notarized. A parent or legal guardian (with identification) must accompany children under 18 years old.
  • Never make alterations, erasures, or use whiteout on a certificate of title. If this is done, the title becomes null and void; a new title will have to be issued.
  • Used vehicles purchased out-of-state require a serial number inspection. A purchase from an out-of-state dealer requires a Bill of Sale ST108 and RD108 form, the inspection (if the vehicle is considered used), and the out-of-state title.
  • Your Social Security Number is REQUIRED BY LAW when applying for a certificate of title.
  • A certificate of title may be obtained in any county in Ohio. A photo identification or driver's license are necessary to transfer a title.
  • A transfer of title must be made within 30 days of notary date to avoid a penalty fee.
  • DO NOT leave your certificate of title in your car. It is similar to the deed of your real estate property; it is your proof of ownership. Take good care of it.
  • Please note: we do not issue driver's license nor license plates. Please contact the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles, Bryan Ohio office at 419/636/5516.
