In California you will encounter many interesting things, especially with DMV.

There are a few forms that you may need.

Form: DMV 14

Change of address, DMV and your lending institution wants to know where your car is garaged.  If you are in a rural area and need a P.O. Box and your zip code is different, you will need to file this as well.


Form: Notice of transfer and release of liability

This is an important one.  If you sell a car, you do not want to be sent bills, tickets, notices, or insurance claims for a car you no longer own.  Most forms are on the website for each state.

The transfer removes this car out of your name and title.

When moving between states, refer to the states involved.
