Are you looking to sign or transfer your title but made a mistake? If that is the case, do not try to fix it yourself. Do not try to fix it yourself as it is an official legal document and must be corrected through the right channels. Instead, bring your title to the DMV to start to receive a corrected car title. There is still a chance that the title is accepted if you explain the situation. If you try to cross out your mistake or use whiteout, they will not accept it. If rejected, they will have you fill out a form and pay a fee. After this happens, you will either receive a brand new corrected title that day or receive it soon after. If the mistake was made by the previous owner, contact them and have them fill in the new vehicle title correctly.
