Titling of Used Vehicles

Applications for a title must originate in the local County Motor Vehicle office in the county where the vehicle is garaged.  Military or full-time college students may register at their legal residence or their stationed address.

A vehicle must be registered within 60 days from the date of purchase or penalty will be charged.

Documents Required
  • Properly assigned title (notarization is no longer required in Kansas).
  • Kansas sales tax receipt is required when purchased from a Kansas dealer.
  • Bill of Sale when purchased from out-of-state dealer.
  • Affidavit of Purchase Price (TR-11) when title has no line for purchase price.
  • A Motor Vehicle Examination (MVE-1) on out-of-state titles from the Kansas Highway Patrol.  The Highway Patrol is located at East Highway 68 at KDOT.  Office hours for MVE-1 examinations are Monday 9:00am - 12:00pm and Thursday 9:00am - 12:00pm

                                                        Other Inspection Options

The following are required for the MVE-1 examination:
1.  The vehicle
2.  Title
3.  $20 cash or check for regular titles and $25 cash or 3.
     (check for salvage titles)
MVE-1 can be processed with any Kansas highway patrol that has the forms.
  • Proof of current insurance for each vehicle.
  • Transfer of Death (TOD) party's name and address if desired on title.
  • Lien release if lien shows on the seller's title.

The State of Kansas now holds, in electronic format, any title that has a lien attached until the lien is paid off.  It is called an E-Title.
