Title Transfers

Montana Title Transfers
All sellers must have signed the title in front of a notary in order for the title to be transferred.  If a lien is showing on the title, a lien release is needed.  Driver’s license or government issued ID is required to process a title transfer and registration.

Out of State Title Transfers
If you have the title, it must be signed by all sellers and notarized, if it is required by the issuing state.

Title Transfers for New Montana Residents
The out-of-state title is required in order to title your vehicle in Montana. If the title is being held by a lienholder, it will need to be requested from the lender using the Request for Foreign Title form which can also be obtained in the Treasurer’s Office. Your current out-of-state registration and lienholder information will be needed in order to process this request. If needed, a one-time 40 day TRP can be issued for $20.09.

Driver’s license or government issued ID and proof of physical residence (2) in Mineral County are required to process a title transfer and registration for new residents.

Temporary Registration Permits

A Temporary Registration Permit (TRP) can be issued on any newly purchased vehicle or on an out-of-state vehicle where the title is being held by the lien holder.  A TRP is valid for 40 days from the date of issuance and only one TRP may be issued per vehicle purchase.

Newly Purchased Vehicles:

  • Montana Resident – $20.09 (charged at time of the title and registration transaction)
  • Out of State Resident – $25.24 (due at time of TRP issuance)

A Title or Bill of Sale with a verifiable VIN and photo ID is required in order for a TRP to be issued.

Out of State Title Transfers:
A 40 day TRP may be issued to a new Montana resident whose title is being held by their lien holder.  There is a $20.09 fee due at the time of TRP issuance.

Registration Purposes Only (RPO)

RPO stands for Registration Purposes Only and is for an out of state carrier who has been in the state longer than 72 hours on a Montana permit or is gainfully employed. Carriers can obtain the RPO through the county that they are currently working in.

Out of state residents who are temporarily working in Montana or are using their vehicle for hire, compensation or profit, must display an RPO decal and pay taxes for using Montana public roadways. Because they are not Montana residents, they cannot title their vehicles in Montana. To qualify for a registration purposes only permit, the out of state resident must provide a current out of state registration. A temporary registration is acceptable, as long as it’s current. MCA 61-3-701

Decals are available quarterly expiring in March, June, September or December or yearly and can only be issued for as long as the out of state registration is valid.

Driver’s Licenses and ID cards can be issued in Mineral County every Thursday at the Mineral County Courthouse in Superior.
