Title Information
Vehicle Purchased by Cash
  • When a vehicle is a cash purchase from either a dealer or a private individual you must bring the title and any applicable documents properly assigned to you.
  • As of July 1, 1999, proof of valid vehicle insurance is also required.
  • If you have a set of license plates you want to reissue to your newly purchased vehicle, bring the registration for those plates.

Financed Vehicle
  • If the vehicle is financed the dealership or your financial institution will file the necessary documents with Summit County.
  • If the vehicle was purchased from an out of state dealer or you arranged your own financing with an out of state financial institution the required documents may be sent to you.
  • If that is the case, it is your responsibility to file the required documents to title and register the vehicle.
  • Upon acceptance, the application will be processed and Summit County will mail you a post card.
  • You must bring this card and proof of valid insurance to our office to purchase your license plates.
