Obtaining a Title and Registration For a Vehicle Bought from a Car Dealership

If you purchase a vehicle from a car dealership in Wyoming, in most cases, the dealership will handle all the paperwork on your behalf. In this case, the county clerk will notify you to come in and sign a purchaser’s application. If the dealer fails to do this, you’ll go to the county clerk’s office with the following:

  • The original Manufacturer`s Statement of Origin properly signed by the dealership
  • A completed Title Application and VIN Inspection Form
  • A Security Agreement/Loan Contract or UCC financing statement if the vehicle is financed
  • An odometer disclosure statement (PDF) or the odometer disclosure portion of the MSO properly completed
  • The purchase invoice from the dealer and proof of insurance for transfer or issue of license plates.
  • The Wyoming Sales/Use Tax form provided by the dealer

Obtaining a Title and Registration For a Vehicle Bought from a Private Party

If you buy the vehicle from a private party, you’ll need to complete all the paperwork yourself. You will go into the county clerk’s office with the following:

  • Original Wyoming title signed by all parties whose names appear on the front of the title.
  • A completed State of Wyoming Title Application and VIN Inspection Form
  • The properly completed odometer disclosure on the title or the odometer disclosure statement (PDF)
  • If the vehicle is purchased from a dealer, a Wyoming Sales/Use tax form and the dealer`s purchase invoice; also a Dealer Reassignment Form if the dealer provided it.
  • If purchased from an individual, a notarized bill of sale.
  • A Security Agreement/Loan Contract or UCC financing statement if the vehicle is financed.

Filling Out The Title

The Seller must sign the title in front of a notary. Even if the names on the title appear as John OR Jane Doe, both parties must sign as sellers on the title and have their signatures notarized. Any liens which appear on the front of the title must be properly released by a deputy county clerk

Registering the Purchased Vehicle

To register the vehicle, you must have at least the minimum insurance required and, if the vehicle was bought used, a vehicle inspection. If you have the required documents, you may register the vehicle at the same time you receive the new title. Registration also is done through the county clerk and county treasurer’s offices.

Submitting Payment

The registration fee for passenger vehicles is $30; the fee for trucks is $30 to $90 depending upon weight. Wyoming charges an annual fee of $200 for electric vehicles. Vehicle owners also must pay annual property taxes and pay sales taxes when buying the vehicle. The title fee is $15. You pay these fees to the county treasurer in the county where the vehicle resides.
