Most Common Questions


Used Vehicle Purchased From an Individual:

If you are purchasing a vehicle from an individual, always ask to see the title. (Refer to Title Tips). You will need the following:

  • The original certificate of title with all owners' signatures properly notarized (if the title was issued by another state, call the titles office at 633–4247 to see if seller's signatures need to be notarized)
  • The odometer disclosure on the title must be properly completed or a separate odometer statement must be presented with the title (not required if the model year of the vehicle is more than 10 years old)
  • Unless the certificate of title the seller gives you is a Wyoming title, you will need a vehicle identification number inspection done by law enforcement
    • Cheyenne Police Department – 2020 Capitol Avenue (637–6524)
    • Laramie County Sheriff's Department – 1910 Pioneer Avenue (633–4700)
    • Wyoming Highway Patrol – 5300 Bishop Boulevard
    • If the vehicle is not running or is a trailer, call for an on–site inspection
      • Police Department if located in the city limits
      • Sheriff's Department if located outside the city limits
    • Be prepared to show proof of ownership (dealer's invoice or bill of sale) and photo identification
  • It is recommended that you get a notarized bill of sale from the seller
