How long do I have to transfer a vehicle?

The new owner has 30 days to present the properly assigned title to his/her county treasurer so that a title can be issued in the new owner’s name. Penalties will apply after 30 days.

This includes purchasing, dropping or adding a name to a vehicle or a vehicle is gifted to you, etc.
