To Obtain a Tennessee Title on a New Vehicle

The owner of the vehicle must appear in person to apply for a Tennessee Title on a new vehicle. If the owner is unable to appear in person, a Power of Attorney form must be completed and notarized authorizing someone else to transact the title transfer on the owner's behalf. Please Note: that only one owner's signature is required if the vehicle is titled to two or more owners and their names are joined by the conjunction "or". When the conjunction "and" is used, all parties must sign or submit notarized Power of Attorney.

The owner of the vehicle or the Power of Attorney must submit the following:

  • MSO–Manufacturer's Statement of Origin (Odometer Statement is on back)

  • Bill of Sale from the dealership.

  • Current vehicle registration on the trade-in vehicle if transferring the license plate.

  • A transfer fee of $17.50 if transferring a license plate from another vehicle.

  • A transfer fee of $87.50 if purchasing a new license plate.

  • Please Note: Additional sales tax may be due if vehicle was purchased out of state.

THE STATE OF TENNESSEE WILL NOT ACCEPT WHITEOUT OR ALTERATIONS ON ANY OF THE ABOVE MENTIONED DOCUMENTS!
