When can a dealer reassignment form be used?

A licensed motor vehicle dealer in this state may use a Secure Dealer Reassignment form to transfer the ownership of a vehicle to their customer only when:

  • All of the assignment spaces on the vehicle's title have been completed; or
  • The vehicle's title, assigned to your dealership, is not available at the time of sale (i.e. Title is in the business office's safe and the vehicle is sold after business hours, etc.)

When the vehicle's title is available, the assignment spaces on the title should be used to transfer ownership of the vehicle instead of using a secure dealer reassignment form.

Important: Secure Dealer Reassignment forms can only be used after the vehicle's title has been completed transferring the ownership of the vehicle to your dealership; in other words, your dealership must be the owner of the vehicle before you can sell the vehicle and transfer ownership. Your dealership's proof of ownership of the vehicle is the vehicle's valid title properly assigned to your dealership.

When the vehicle's valid title becomes available, you must enter the Dealer Reassignment form's control number you used in the title assignment space where you would have ordinarily entered your customer' name. The Dealer Reassignment form must accompany the title when a title is applied for in your customer's name(s).

These forms are not available from the Department of Revenue, Motor Vehicle Division, or the County Tax Commissioners' offices but may be purchased from one of the following authorized dealer associations:
