    Transfering title.... Bike/Car Sales

    I have a guy coming from Evansville to buy the 4Runner today. I know I just need to sign the back of the title and then he can do his thing in IN, but do I need to take the plate off it? I have a "UofL" specialty plate and just didnt know if it mattered.


    Thanks guys.

    Yes you do... Since it's going to a different state, you need to remove the tag. Best thing to do is arrange to go to an Indiana BMV/DMV with him, driving your car after he sees it, or have him drive it there with you in it. Then do all the paperwork there to get the title in his name, and let him get a plate in his name. He will need to have insurance on it, and they can do an inspection on the vehicle while there.

    If you need a ride I cam come get you in Indiana.

    Yes. Keep your plate.

    He has a grace period after the point of sale to legally drive it on the road with no plate and his insurance company for his prior vehicle covers him as well. If he gets pulled over all he has to do is show the signed and dated title and he's good.

    You may have to get the title notorized also. I know you do going from IN to KY, but I'm not 100% sure KY to IN.

    Good point B Mac, you need to get it notorized because there is a place for it on the title. IN doesn't require it on IN titles because there is no place for it. I would just do it to make sure.

    Actually Railing you are correct. I had it backwards. You have to have it Notarized for a KY to whatever other state title transfer. IN you don't have to have it Notarized. I forgot that KY Titles had a spot for that.

    Indiana has no grace period. No tag could land you a nice fine. I bought and sold around 7 cars and 5 bikes over the past two years and I asked this specific question more than once to our lovely BMV workers. Coming out of KY he will need to go to the KY clerks office for some stupid piece of paper (my wife always did this) before being able to title/tag it in Indiana and he'll have to have the Po Po inspect it.

    Not that you give a rats ass what he has to do, but it's good information for the next go around.

    Tax collectors and law makers can suck it.
