How to Transfer a Car Title in Minnesota

To introduce a car title in the state of Minnesota, it’s a good idea to read these instructions, locate all the appropriate lines on the title, and read any instructions on the title before you start filling in the information.

You will find this information on the front of your Minnesota title on the bottom half of the page.

  1. On the line under the words “Odometer disclosure statement,” print the vehicle’s current mileage.
  2. On the line that says “Seller’s printed name,” the seller should print their name. If two people currently own the car and are selling it, both of them need to fit their names on this line. Right next to this line is a line where the buyer(s) should print their name(s).
  3. Look for the line that says “Seller’s address” and print your address. Right next to this line is a line where the buyer should print their address.
  4. The seller should sign the title on the line that says “Seller’s signature.” Again, if two people are selling the vehicle, both of their signatures need to fit on this line. Immediately next to this line is a place where the buyer(s) can sign their name(s).
