Both moving and having to start driving are big changes! Buying a new car in Virginia
is a fairly simple process. All you need is some paperwork, a safety inspection, and a trip to the DMV.
Before completely taking ownership of the vehicle, you will need to complete the following documents:
Make sure that the title includes your information as well as the seller’s. You will also need to list the purchase price of the vehicle. For cars more than five years old, you’ll need a Form SUT 1.
After this, you can formally transfer the vehicle to your name. Bring the above-listed documents to the DMV, as well as your Virginia driver’s license and payment for registration fees.
You will also need to have proof of a current insurance policy
to register the vehicle. For help finding a new auto insurance policy, download the Jerry
