Delaware Vehicle Titles

How to sign your Delaware Vehicle Title

Be sure to sign and print your name exactly as spelled on the front of your title. Avoid erasures, scribbles, and strike-throughs. If your Delaware title shows a lien or a bank name printed on the front, then your title will need to be signed off by the lien holder or have a separate lien release letter.

  • On the back of the title, on the top left, sign your name on the line where it reads “Signature of Seller.”
  • On the back of the title, right below where you signed your name, print your name on the line where it reads “Printed Name of Seller.”

Delaware law requires the registered owner to notify DMV of the sale or transfer of a vehicle. The seller must complete the Seller’s Report of Sale and registration card and mail them to DMV except when the vehicle is sold/transferred to a dealer. In that case, provide the registration card to the dealer and mail the Seller’s Report of Sale to DMV.
