Oregon Transfer Car Title

Do you need to transfer your car title in Oregon? If a OR car title is currently in your name, but should be amended, learn more about the process below.

Transfer Title

Before transferring a title in Oregon, all liens must be paid off and the security interest holder has returned the title with a written release of interest.

To transfer the title, you must then:

  • Have both the buyer and all owners sign the title
  • On the back, there is another section for the buyer and seller to sign (which may be written as "Registered Owners" and "New Owners" on an older title)
  • Record the current odometer reading

Once the title is signed over, the seller is no longer the legal owner, however must report the sale to the Oregon DMV within 10 days.
