The Utah motor vehicle bill of sale transfers vehicle ownership when a car or truck is sold between private parties and is necessary for registering the title and vehicle in the new owner’s name.
The state provides Form TC-843 for use as a bill of sale on vehicles sold in Utah. It includes information about the transaction, the vehicle, and the buyer and seller involved in the purchase.
Utah law states that vehicle registration must occur within 60 days of the sale and purchase. For purchases from a certified dealership, the dealership will take care of the titling and registration in most cases. However, if you buy a vehicle from an individual, you must submit the necessary paperwork to the DMV.
