4 Easy Ways to Avoid Car Title Problems at the DMV
1. Get a Title Whenever You Buy a Vehicle
Make sure to review the title before paying anything. If they don't have it, it's possible that the seller still owes money on the car's loan.
2. Sign and Date the Title Immediately
Additionally, if you get a title that was not signed or dated, you can be responsible for paying excessive taxes for the period during which the title was wrongfully transferred. Avoid using those kinds of titles at all costs.
At AZ Motor Vehicle Express, we specialise in pursuing obtaining new titles, so you're in luck if you need to do so.
Don't lie when you indicate the selling price on the title and bill of sale. It's understandable if you want to avoid paying taxes and fees, but inflating the selling price on either of these documents is illegal.
4. Sell the Car, Keep the Plates
Make sure you remove your car’s license plates at the time of sale. In some situations, you can put them on your next vehicle and save yourself some money.
