Titling vehicles with liens

Vehicles that have liens will not be issued a paper title.  Until the lien is paid off, the title sits on the State Motor Vehicle Records as an "E-Title"
 

What if I purchase a vehicle that has an e-title and the title has not been released yet? 

You may purchase a termporary permit with the following:

  1. A copy of the previous owner's registration showing the e-title status.
  2. A form TR-39A, E-Title Sales agreement, completed.
  3. Proof of insurance.

  

Don't forget your proof of insurance!
