Kansas Motor Vehicle (DMV) Bill of Sale Form


The Kansas DMV bill of sale form is legally required if there is no room to record the selling price or names and signatures of the parties involved in the transaction. Also, if the vehicle is 35 years or older and doesn’t have a title, a bill of sale can legitimately transfer ownership to the purchaser of the vehicle. Even if any of those circumstances do not apply to your situation, it is still considered wise to execute this contract. A bill of sale functions as sales slip, providing proof by recording details regarding the sale and purchase of the vehicle in question. Both parties should reserve a copy to have on record.

How to Register a Vehicle

If you purchased a vehicle in a private sale, the state of Kansas allows 60 days to register the vehicle. Visit a DOV (Division of Vehicles) office located at the county treasurer’s office. You must arrive in person with the materials listed below:

  • A completed bill of sale (confirming the existence of a transaction).
  • Title (must be signed over to the new owner).
  • Driver’s license (must indicate that the person registering the vehicle is a Kansas resident i.e. state issued).
  • Proof of insurance (an insurance card or statement).
  • Fill out and sign a Title and Registration Manual Application (Form TR-212a).
  • Necessary preparations to pay for any registration fees and/or tax fees.
