How to sign your CA title

How to sign your California title when selling your vehicle

The registered owner of the vehicle should do the following:

  1. First, sign your name on the front of the title on line "1a" (Signature of registered owner)

  2. If your vehicle is less than 10 years old, sign your name in the odometer section at the bottom where it reads "Transferor/Seller Signature"

If there is more than one owner of the vehicle, both must sign the title.

  1. Fill out form REG227 Application for Duplicate Title.

  2. You can do one of the following options:

    Bring your duplicate title application your local DMV office.

    Department of Motor Vehicles 
    Registration Operations 
    PO Box 942869 MS E169

Please note that there may be a two to six week waiting period. The cost to obtain a new title is $19.00 paid to the California Department of Motor Vehicles

Frequently asked questions

What if my title doesn't look like the one pictured?
California often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your California DMV.

Do I need to turn in my licence plates?
Yes, unless you are transferring the plates to a new vehicle. You can return the plates to your local DMV office.

What should I do about my auto insurance? You will need to notify your auto insurance company that you have sold the vehicle so they can either cancel your policy if the vehicle was sold, or transfer/renew the policy on your new vehicle.

Is there anything else I need to do?
Fill out form REG139 Notice of Transfer and Release of Liability and submit it to the department of motor vehicles within five calendar days.
