How to sign your Washington Vehicle Title

Be sure to sign and print your name exactly as spelled on the front of your Washington title. Avoid erasures, scribbles, strike-throughs and use a black or blue pen only. If your Washington 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.

  • Sign the front of the title on the “Signature of Registered Owner” line and the “Signature of First Legal Owner” line.
  • Sign the front of the title where it reads “Signature of Transferor/Seller” in the assignment of title.
  • Print name on the front of the title where it reads “Printed Name of Transferor/Seller.”
