Transferring Title on an Out of State Vehicle

When bringing a vehicle into the state of Washington to be titled and licensed please be aware that each situation may require different documents. Below are a list of the minimum requirements necessary.

  • Please get your WA driver license then register your vehicle(s). You have 30 days once you establish residency here to get your driver license, register your vehicle(s) and get new plates.
  • If a purchase with an Out of State Title we need the current title with all legal and registered owners signature(s) releasing interest in the vehicle.
  • A bill of sale stating the full purchase price.
  • A completed odometer disclosure form if the vehicle is 10 years old or newer.
  • Please give us a call for a fee estimation.

If you have moved to Washington State, we need your Out of State Title. If you are making payments on the Vehicle we need a faxed copy of your title to (509) 736-1555. Your lien holder may request a written authorization please give us a call (509) 736-3926 we will prepare one for you.
