A vehicle bill of sale is a legal document that reflects the intent of the buyer and seller to transfer ownership, explains Nolo. It records the names of the parties, identifies the vehicle and lists the date of the transaction. Some states also require an odometer reading and notarization.
A vehicle title identifies the official owner of the vehicle, notes Rocket Lawyer. The buyer applies for the title from the motor vehicles department and submits the bill of sale as part of the title application.
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles website includes several typical forms. The Notice of Sale and/or Bill of Sale is a one-page form that identifies the vehicle, selling price and odometer reading. The Certificate of Title With/Without Registration is a two-page form that identifies the buyer, the vehicle and manner in which the buyer acquired the vehicle. The buyer submits both forms to the tax collector's office to complete registration. The website also provides ancillary forms such as applications for special license plates, department records and replacement license plates.Learn more about Driving Laws
