Illinois Vehicle Titles

How to sign your Illinois Vehicle Title

Be sure to sign and print your name exactly as spelled on the front of your Illinois title. Avoid erasures, scribbles, and strike-throughs. If your Illinois 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 front of your Illinois title, sign where it reads “Signature of Seller(s).”
  • On the front of your Illinois title, Print your name(s) where it reads “Printed Name(s) of Seller(s).””
