Your title is a legal document. Incorrectly completing your title may void it, requiring you to obtain a duplicate copy. Please read all of the instructions and tips before signing your title.
Don't void your title
- Use black or blue pen, only
- Don't use a highlighter or white-out
- No strikethroughs, write-overs, scribbles, or tears
**If your title design varies from the image shown below, review your title carefully before proceeding. While the signature and printed name fields may be in a different location, you will still need to print and sign your name in the appropriate areas in front of a Notary Public.**
The person(s) named on the front of the title must follow these steps:
1. This title must be notarized! Sign the title in front of a Notary Public.
2. If you are selling a vehicle inside of Kentucky with a Kentucky title, disregard the example image and sign the front of the title where it reads "Signature(s) of Seller(s)."
3. If you are selling a vehicle outside of Kentucky with a Kentucky title, sign on the back of the title as is shown in the image above.
3. Print name(s) on the back of the title where it reads "Printed Names(s) of Seller(s)."
4. If there's a lien listed on the title, it must be released on the title, or accompanied by a separate lien release letter.
The name(s) used to sign the title must exactly match the name(s) shown on the title. If you have changed your name since the title was issued, do not sign with your new name. Go ahead and sign with the name shown on the title.
If there are two owners on the title, one or both must sign depending on how the names appear in the title.
- Owner 1 OR Owner 2 - Only ONE owner must sign
- Owner 1 AND/OR Owner 2 - BOTH owners must sign
- Owner 1 AND Owner 2 - BOTH owners must sign
- Owner 1 Owner 2 (No conjunction) - BOTH owners must sign
Don't worry about the Buyer line, you should leave that blank.
