Utah has its own rules for selling a used car. This guide will help simplify the process.

Step 1 - Gather Documents

Certificate of Title

Complete the Assignment of Title section on the back of the certificate.

  • Buyer name and address.
  • Date of sale.
  • Selling price.
  • Odometer disclosure.
  • Buyer’s signature.
  • Your signature.

Bill of Sale

Although it’s not required by law, the Utah DMV recommends that you provide a bill of sale.

Keep a copy for yourself. It’s proof of legal transfer of ownership.

Your PrivateAuto listing includes an electronic bill of sale form and state-specific documents. You can fill them out and sign right in the app.

Vehicle History Report

Show the buyer that you’re a trustworthy seller by providing a history report. PrivateAuto trusted partner AutoCheck offers the best value for the money.

Step 2 - Arrange a Test Drive

Forget the never-ending calls, emails, and texts when you arrange a test drive. Use PrivateAuto’s test drive scheduler instead.

Just choose a place to meet and select days and times you’re available.

Step 3 - Complete the Sale

Remove the license plates before finalizing the sale.

You’ll need to notify the DMV that you no longer own the car. This will release you from liability in case the new owner…

  • Uses the car in a crime.
  • Is in an accident.
  • Abandons the car.
