Purchasing A Vehicle
What You Need to Purchase a Vehicle With an Alabama Title
  • The Alabama title properly assigned to buyer
  • Proof of Insurance (insurance provider must be licensed to do business in Alabama)
  • Bill of sale or gift affidavit - Any sale for less than $50 must be written as a "gift."
  • Valid government-issued photo ID - Note that company-owned vehicles require an FEIN.
  • If there are two owners and their names are joined by “and”, both owners must be present to sign the title application or one has to send an original, notarized power of attorney. If there are two owners with no connecting word, it is considered “and”. If names are joined by “or”, only one owner is needed to register the vehicle. EACH owner reflected on the vehicle title must present a valid government issued driver’s license or non driver’s ID.
