The documentation and forms required for titling a vehicle are based on the situation involving the vehicle, as described in the table below.
Additional requirements may apply to
other types of vehicles (e.g., antiques, replicas, mobile homes, mopeds, motorcycles and trailers) as well as
special cases such as leased, salvaged and abandoned vehicles as well as when an owner does not have proof of ownership or the vehicle is in a trust.
Forms must be filled out, and if being processed at a N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles office, be accompanied by a valid North Carolina driver license, temporary North Carolina Driving Certificate or out-of-state driver license.
If there are co-owners to be recorded on a title, all signatures on required documents must be notarized and accompanied by a black-and-white copy of the alternate owner’s valid driver license/ID or a Power of Attorney’s signature.
1 Notarization is required.
