Here is what you should know about selling your car in Alaska.

Documents You Need To Sell Your Car In Alaska

Certificate of Title

Complete the following on the reverse side of the title:

  • Buyer name and address.
  • Buyer signature.
  • Signature of all sellers. If there’s more than one owner, all must sign.
  • Odometer disclosure if the car is less than 10 years old.
  • Rebuilt from salvage disclosure if needed.

Odometer Statement

If the car is less than 10 years old, Federal law requires both you and the buyer to complete the Conforming Odometer Statement on the back of the title.

If there’s no room on the title, you and the buyer must complete the Federal Odometer Disclosure Statement.

Bill of Sale

Alaska requires a bill of sale when you sell your car. You can download a bill of sale form on the Alaska DMV website.
