New to State


Once you have established residency in Rutherford County you are required to make an application for Tennessee title and registration. You will need to surrender your out of state title to our office. If there is a lien on your vehicle you will need to bring in your current registration and full name and address of your lienholder. Some states issue the title to the owner rather than the lienholder, in this case you would be required to bring the title. You must be the owner of the vehicle or furnish a notarized Power of Attorney form the owner. You will be required to show your driver’s license or acceptable proof of identification and proof of residency.


Fees for a new TN title and registration:
$99.50 - If ownership and lien have already been perfected on out of state title.

If you are leasing the vehicle you will be required to furnish the out of state registration in the leasing company's name, a notarized Power of Attorney from the leasing company, a copy of the lease agreement, a valid Tennessee sales tax number for the lease company, your valid identification and proof of residency.
