Documents You Need To Sell Your Car In Kentucky

Certificate of Title

Complete the reverse side of the title:

  • Buyer name and address.
  • Selling price.
  • Date of sale.
  • Your signature and buyer’s signature.
  • Odometer disclosure if the car is 10 years old or less.

Odometer Statement

Complete the odometer disclosure on the back of the title. Cars that are more than 10 years old are exempt.

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

Bill of Sale

Kentucky requires you to provide the buyer with a bill of sale.

Be sure to include:

  • Your name and the buyer’s name.
  • Vehicle description.
  • Make
  • Model
  • Year
  • Color
  • Vehicle identification number (VIN)
  • Sales price.
  • Date of sale.
  • Your signature and buyer’s signature.

Keep a copy of the title and the Bill of Sale for your records

PrivateAuto includes a bill of sale with your car listing.

Vehicle History Report

It’s the buyer’s responsibility to research the car’s history. However, if you aren’t the first owner of the car, a history report can reveal useful info.

Also, when you provide a history report to the buyer, you present yourself as a trustworthy seller.

When you sell your car with PrivateAuto, you get a history report from AutoCheck at no extra cost.

Test Drive

The buyer will want to test drive the car to see if it’s what he or she wants. You’ll need to set up a location and time to meet.

This can lead to endless back-and-forth texts and phone calls. But when you list your car with PrivateAuto, you can use the free Test Drive scheduling tool.

Kentucky License Plates

Kentucky requires you to remove the license plates from a sold automobile.
