We are happy to walk you through this process.

VEHICLE TITLE ONLY

HERE’S ALL THE INFORMATION AND DOCUMENTS YOU’LL NEED WHEN WANTING TO TITLE YOUR VEHICLE(S):

In most cases, a vehicle is titled and registered at the same time. Go to the “Vehicle Registration & Title” tab above to know what to bring to title and register your car at the same time. If you want to get only a Certificate of Title, the New Mexico MVD will issue a title without registering the vehicle or issuing a license plate, under a limited number of conditions, as outlined below.

CERTIFICATE OF TITLE FOR A VEHICLE THAT DOES NOT OPERATE

This is usually a vehicle that is purchased for reconstruction or rebuilding, mechanically or otherwise, and one which the buyer does not intend to operate for an extended period of time. You must pay the title fee and the excise tax on the vehicle, but no plate will be issued. Once the vehicle is operable, you can come back to MVD Now to register the vehicle if you choose.

Here are the documents you’ll need to bring when you visit us at MVD Now to title a non-operating vehicle(s):

  • One (1) valid Driver’s License or ID for EACH person that will be on the title
  • Two (2) Proofs of New Mexico Residency if the primary form of ID is not from New Mexico | 

CERTIFICATE OF TITLE FOR A VEHICLE THAT IS NOT INSURED

If you have purchased a vehicle for which you cannot get insurance, you can get just a Certificate of Title on the vehicle. You must pay the title fee and the excise tax on the vehicle, but no license plate will be issued. Once you do get insurance on the vehicle, you can then register the vehicle if you choose.

Here are the documents you’ll need to bring when you visit us at MVD Now to title an uninsured vehicle(s):

  • One (1) valid Driver’s License or ID for EACH person that will be on the title
  • Two (2) Proofs of New Mexico Residency if the primary form of ID is not from New Mexico 
  • One (1) Vehicle Title – Recommended to bring untouched, with Bill of Sale completed
  • One (1) Bill of Sale– Completely filled out by purchaser and seller 

AVOID RECEIVING A TAX PENALTY FROM THE STATE FOR LATE TITLING!

A penalty of 50% of the Motor Vehicle Excise Tax is imposed by the state on any person who lives in New Mexico and either:

  • Accepts transfer of a vehicle in New Mexico but fails to apply for a certificate of title within 90 days.
  • Accepts transfer outside the state and fails to apply for a certificate of title within 90 days of bringing the vehicle into New Mexico.

The 50% add-on penalty has the effect of increasing the tax rate to 6% (4% x 1.5 = 6%). When this tax happens, 25% of the tax goes to the Local Governments Road Fund, the rest goes to the Highway Infrastructure Fund.

Don’t forget to title your vehicle before the 90-day cut off to make sure to avoid any extra tax penalties. 

OUT OF STATE VEHICLE REGISTRATION

Important: You have 30 days from the date you became a resident of New Mexico to register your car.

  • One (1) passed emissions test (for all 35-year-old and newer motor vehicles)
