What specific information/insurance forms would i need to take to the clerk's office to transfer a car title? It is currently under my mom's and my name and will be transferred to mine alone. Thanks for any info.

title, registration, drivers license, proof of insurance, family transfer form unless you want to pay taxes. I would take your mom with you and you can sign all the forms there and avoid a notary

If your just transferring it to your name and that's it you wouldn't need anything. You can transfer it with no insurance just can't have it tagged.

How do you transfer without a title, and why would you want to pay taxes when you can do a family transfer without paying any taxes. Why give advice when you dont know what your talking about.

Just did this last wk. U need title, current registration, proof if insurance IN YOUR NAME. If she signs ir there you won't have to pay sales tax, but it is 15.00 foe new registration n your name only.hope this helps you. There are forms of transfer to fill out as well.

I am assuming all the forms are at the clerk's office and there is nothing to fill out beforehand correct? My only other question is is an insurance card good enough or is there a special form of some sort I need to obtain? Thanks for the info by the way.

Let me clarify to the retards that can't read into what people say.

To just TRANSFER like the OP said in the first place. You would ONLY need a title - that's it. You DO NOT need insurance to do a transfer only. Yes, of course the OP's mother can "gift" the car to them but did this person ask about that? No. They asked what they would NEED to "TRANSFER" the car into there name. I've done many title transfers in the past in numerous different counties and none has required insurance for a transfer only.

You only need insurance to TAG a car to drive. To put the car in your own name to prove ownership of the car you just need a title.
oh geez

Not true... in state of ky insurance is required for a TRANSFER.... I did it last week. If I were you I'd simply call first before you go to dmv. Cannot have a vehicle un your name without insurance, anew insurance has to be in your name as well...

You are way to stupid to be giving anyone advice about anything. You do have to have a title, you do have to have insurance or there has to be insurance placed on the car by you, and if you
had a brain at all you would suggest that the person do a mother/daughter transfer to pay no taxes. Ret ard

What part of read my last post can you not comprehend? In my SECOND post on this thread, I clarified what I meant for you people that do not understand.

It's common sense you have to have a title to a car. well, never mind - obviously it's not for some of you. As far as any other information or insurance you do not need anything. To change ownership of a vehicle and that's it you DO NOT need anything else.

No, I do not work at a DMV but I've worked with my family business for years and have bought/sold, registered, transferred enough cars to know what it takes.

A person comes on here, who has no clue what it takes to transfer a vehicle and you give them advice that states you need nothing to transfer a vehicle, just show up at the dmv. Talking about a family business that will fail when the children take over, you sound like a typical know it all, who knows zero. Maybe you should spend more time with the family business then giving bad advice on the internet.

lol. Ok. Did that get you off being able to "try" and talk down on someones family business and belittle them? Let's hope so because that's about the only thing you would have accomplished with your reply.

I made my point and advice clear multiple times in my posts (maybe not the FIRST post I made but I did). I have nothing to prove to you so I'm not going to argue with you.

Regardless of what is said by the expert
From the Fayette County Clerks Office
Kentucky requires that an application for title be made within 15 days of purchase for used vehicles.
What you will need:
Original Kentucky Title
Original Kentucky Registration
Proof of current Kentucky liability insurance for the buyer
Picture identification for buyer and seller.(If buyer and/or seller will not be present in our office, an application must be signed and notarized prior to transfer.)(See Example)
Social Security Number for each new owner(s) appearing on the title or Federal Tax ID Number for companies
Title Lien Statement (TC96-187E) if applicable
Titles printed prior to 3/1/2000 will also require an Application for Title (TC96-182).(See Example)
TITLE ONLY transfers require that plates be surrendered to the county clerk.
*All liens must be terminated prior to transfer.
If you have lost your Kentucky title you will need to order a duplicate title.
