Can You Sell a Car Without a Title?

The quick answer is no, you cannot sell (or purchase) any vehicle in Maryland without the title to the vehicle. If you are selling or buying a car, truck, trailer, motorcycle (including mopeds, scooters and ATVs) or any other motor vehicle in Maryland you must have the title. There are a few exceptions. Certain vehicles over 20 years old from states such as New York and Maine substitute registration cards for titles. If you are not sure if the vehicle you are selling or purchasing requires the title, assume that it does unless you can verify the exceptions (You may call us at 2401-361-4499 with any questions).
