Georgia Motor Vehicle (DMV) Bill of Sale Form


Updated on January 18th, 2021

The Georgia DMV bill of sale form works as a sales slip in terms of confirming the existence of a transaction. The document contains specific information regarding the sale and can be beneficial for the buyer and seller to have on file. Despite the fact that this form is not legally demanded in the state of Georgia, it is still wise to utilize this instrument considering it may come in handy in certain tax situations or as evidence of the transfer of ownership.

How to Register a Vehicle

Come with the proper requirements listed below to your nearest Georgia Tag Office:

  • A completed Georgia Motor Vehicle Title/Tag Application (Form MV-1).
  • Title of the vehicle.
