Here is a useful guide to selling your car in Kansas.

Gather Documents

Certificate of Title

Complete the reverse side of the title:

  • Purchase date.
  • Buyer signature.
  • Your signature
  • Selling price.
  • Odometer disclosure if the car is 10 years old or less.

Odometer Statement

Complete the odometer disclosure on the back of the title. Automobiles older than 10 years are exempt.

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

Release of Liability

Complete the Seller's Notification of Sale (Form TR-216). You’ll need to send it to the address on the form along with the $10 fee.

It’s best to file immediately so you aren’t held liable if the new owner:

  • Uses the car in a crime
  • Is in an accident
  • Gets a ticket

Bill of Sale

Kansas doesn’t require a bill of sale. But it’s a good idea to have a record of the transaction.

Be sure to keep a copy of the title and the Bill of Sale for your records.

Your PrivateAuto listing includes a bill of sale which you can fill out and sign straight from the app.

Vehicle History Report

While it’s the buyer’s responsibility to research the car’s history, providing a history report helps you build trust with the buyer.

PrivateAuto now partners with AutoCheck. When you sell your car with PrivateAuto, your AutoCheck report is included at no extra cost.

Kansas License Plates

Kansas requires you to remove the license plates. You may want to transfer them to another vehicle you own.

The buyer will need to register the vehicle and apply for a new title.


You may have listings on several sites. But when it’s time to close the deal, use PrivateAuto and close like a pro.
