Title Transfers for California Registered Vehicles
Title Transfers are more complex transactions and the DMV requires original documents with original signatures on all requested forms. Due to this requirement, you can conduct the full transaction in person to be completed the same day at our location or we can email the forms we will need to be returned. In the meantime, we can begin the process by posting fees until we receive the forms. Once payment is received and posted we will send you an e-copy of "Receipt of Deposited Fees" (RDF) from the DMV of incomplete application. Please note that the DMV does not issue tags or plates until the title transfer is complete.
Once documents are received, we will complete the application of title transfer and send you your registration card, tags, and plates (if requested) via mail or for you to pick up. Titles are sent to you directly from the DMV, typically within 1 week of title transfer completion.
Due to the variety of information required by DMV, we may need to contact you for information concerning your transaction. No worries, we are here to help assist you, making this process simple.
The DMV requires all title transfers to undergo and pass a SMOG check test. We can still begin the process of title transfer by posting fees, however we will not be able to complete the title transfer without the vehicle passing a SMOG test. SMOG tests are only valid for 90 days from the date of testing.
