Transfer Title

Do you need to transfer your car title in Pennsylvania? If a PA car title is currently in your name, but should be amended, learn more about the process and get started by following the steps below.

1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Application assistance services can simplify the process for many DMV related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips, trends, legislative updates and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.

2: By mail

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the DMV in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DMV.

3: Via a DMV office

If your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at your local DMV office. Varying DMV offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DMV closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your DMV allows you to make a personal appointment.




Pennsylvania Car Title Transfers

Are you planning on selling your car? If so, you will need to notify Pennsylvania DVS about your PA car title transfer. In order to expedite this process, you will need to provide completed Form MV-4ST, which is a Vehicle Sales and Used Tax/Return Application for Registration. You will need to obtain this form in person at a PennDOT location, since it is not available online through the PA DOT site. However, if you plan to gift your vehicle to its new owner, you can complete MV-13ST, Affidavit of Gift. Be sure to provide proof of identity as well when completing the PA car title transfer process.
