My spouse and I just purchased a vehicle from a private party, do we both need to visit a Secretary of State branch office to transfer the title?
All persons who will be shown as owner on a vehicle's new title must sign the title application. If you or your spouse cannot appear together at a Secretary of State branch office to sign, either may appoint the other to sign on their behalf by completing the Department's Appointment of Agent form. The person who cannot appear completes the form appointing another person to sign on their behalf. The completed form is submitted with the title application.
