When you transfer a car title do they charge?

I bet they do charge when you bought it from someone else but what if its coming from my dad I was the one paying it all theses years and I got the tiel here at my address but its under my dads name since I didnt have credit at that time. Will they still charge me to get the title under my name? and do I just need my dads signature or he has to go with me?

  • You need a bill of sale. Here it's $18 to change the name on the title. They do it at the probate office and no, he shouldn't have to come with you.

  • It depends on the state.
    I think it's what hypermammaz said though. You're charged for the registration.

  • in Georgia, yes. I belive it is $15 to order the new title.

  • Yes, it will cost you according to the sale price. Dad can sell it to you for $100.00 then you only pay according to that amount. Well in our state anyway. I suppose it depends on what state you live in.

  • It's $15 in California as well. The information should be on your state's DMV website. It's called a family transfer. Speaking for my own state, its not subject to the same rules that a traditional title transfer is.
