Buyer and seller both need to bring the same items to DMV: (1) title, (2) driver's license, (3) current mileage on your vehicle, (4) proof of insurance on your vehicle, (5) your plate, and (6) a screwdriver. If your vehicle has a lien on it, then fill out an MV-35 form and send it to the bank that finances your vehicle. This form instructs the bank to mail the original title to the DMV of your choosing. Once the DMV receives your title, they will contact you, at which point you can meet to complete the tag switch. Make sure to put an email address on the MV-35 for fastest notification.
