How to transfer vehicle ownership in Oklahoma

Perform a vehicle title transfer in this state easily

What you need to know about how to transfer vehicle ownership in Oklahoma:

  •  Titles are required to be applied for within 30 days of obtaining ownership.
  • Titles may be applied for through the Motor Vehicle Division, or at any of the over 300 motor license agencies (tag agencies) located throughout the state.
  • Once all requirements for title issuance have been met and the transaction entered, title certificates are generated at a central location and mailed out to the record owner (not the lien holder, if any) on the second business day following entry of the transaction.
  • Upon the assignment of ownership of a vehicle (boats/outboard motors are excluded) currently titled in Oklahoma, the seller may notify the Oklahoma Tax Commission (OTC) of the assignment by completing and submitting to any motor license agency a Notice of Transfer of Ownership of a Vehicle (Form 773) and paying a filing fee. This is an optional procedure, intended only to notify OTC of the transfer of vehicle ownership.
  • A Notice of Transfer of Ownership of a vehicle must include the VIN of the vehicle, license plate number, full name and address of the seller and buyer, date of ownership assignment and signature of seller. 
  • No registration will be allowed until a vehicle transfer title is issued.
  • Record ownership of the vehicle will remain unchanged until a vehicle title transfer is completed.
