How to Transfer a Car Title in Nebraska

Before you sign a car title in the state of Nebraska, 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.

Look for the following information on the front of your Nebraska title. Note that the information is divided into two columns: information about the seller and the buyer.

  1. On the line that says “Odometer reading,” enter the vehicle’s current mileage.
  2. There are three lines that say “Signature of seller.” Everyone whose name is on the title must sign on one of these lines.
  3. On the line that says “Printed name of seller,” one of the vehicle’s owners must print their name.
  4. On the next line, enter the date the vehicle was sold.
  5. In the right-hand column, print the buyer’s name where it says “Name of the purchaser(s).” Note that if more than one person buys the car, all their names must fit on this line.
  6. On the next line, enter the buyer’s full address (street address, city, state, and zip code) in the appropriate places.
  7. On the next blank line, one buyer should sign their name.
  8. On the next line, one buyer should print their name.
