How do I transfer ownership of a motorcycle in Wyoming?
The most important step in transferring ownership when you buy or sell a motorcycle is completing the title transfer.
In order to transfer ownership of a motorcycle, both the buyer and the seller will need to fill out and sign the title.
The seller should also create a Bill of Sale that both parties should sign and retain a copy of.
After that, the buyer will need to take their application documents, including the signed motorcycle title, to their local DOT in order to complete the title transfer process.
The seller may need to notify the DOT of the sale by submitting a notice of transfer and release of liability form.
