The Seller must:

  • Remove the plates and surrender them to a motor vehicle agency or full service agency, unless the plates are being transferred to another vehicle (plates can be transferred to another vehicle, but not to another owner).
  • Sign in the seller's section of the reverse side of the title and give it to the buyer, along with a bill of sale including the following information: Buyer's name and address; Date of sale; Mileage odometer reading; and Sale price.

The Buyer must:

Pre-owned in New Jersey
