To transfer a car title to another person you must fill out the proper paperwork that can be found at the local Department of Motor Vehicle location. The process to transfer a car title differs from state to state.

Some of the things you need to transfer a car title to another person are a title transfer application, the car title, current odometer reading, the vehicle identification number and a bill of sale. One important detail to pay attention to is the vehicle identification number. The VIN on all the paperwork should match the VIN number of the car in question.
