New Jersey Car Title Transfer Process

NJ Title Transfer - How to Transfer a Car Title in NJ

When you're selling a car in NJ you must sign the title on the back first to transfer ownership to the buyer. 

Where Do I Sign a New Jersey Title?

Sign on the back of the title in the lower left section where it is marked "Seller’s Signature.”

Print your name above that line where it reads “Seller’s Name (Hand Print).”

Can I Sell a Car in New Jersey Without a Title?

New Jersey requires a title to sell a vehicle. If your title is lost, a duplicate title can be obtained from the MVC.
