How to Transfer Maine Title

How do I transfer title of my vehicle in Maine (ME)?

  • The state of Maine does NOT require a Certificate of Title in order to transfer ownership of vehicles 1994 and older. In this case the most recent registration and a Bill of Sale to the buyer/purchaser is sufficient.
  • In order to complete the sale of your Maine vehicle, you must transfer your title by entering the name of the buyer/purchaser in the buyer/purchaser field. Please PRINT and SIGN your name in the seller/owner field EXACTLY as it appears at the top of the title.
