Transfer vehicle ownership
As well as handing over the keys, the buyer and the seller of a vehicle need to take these steps to transfer its ownership.
Steps for the seller
Download a Transfer/Tax Form (APV9T) and complete it using Acrobat Reader or pick up a copy from any Autoplan broker. Please note that all four pages must be complete and original signatures are still required.
Remove your licence plates from the vehicle you're selling.
Remove your insurance and registration. The insurance and registration are actually two parts of the same document (APV250).
Tear off (carefully please!) the bottom, vehicle registration portion.
Give the registration to the buyer, making sure it has your signature on it.
After you've been paid, fill out and sign the Transfer/Tax Form in full. Each of the four pages must have original signatures.
To complete the transfer, take the registration and Transfer/Tax Form to an Autoplan broker. We strongly recommend going together with the buyer to ensure that the registration transfer is processed in a timely manner and that your name and any insurance and licence products are removed from the vehicle registration record. This is important in avoiding any possible liability claims associated with the future operation of the vehicle by the purchaser. If you cannot visit the Autoplan broker with the buyer, keep the seller's copy (with original signatures from both you and the seller) for your records.
Remember to cancel your insurance or transfer it to a new vehicle.
