A car title or Pink Slip is proof of legal ownership of a motor vehicle. Car titles are issued to the purchaser at the time of purchase or if the car is financed, the title will not be issued until the car loan is paid off. Owners that wish to sell their car will need to transfer ownership of the car to the buyer through the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Car titles include: vehicle identification number (VIN), make and model of the car, manufacture date, name and address of the owner and the license plate number.
Locate your Registration card. This should contain your vehicle information, including your title number. The title number is 8 digits long and can be located on the line above the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
