Can you tell me how to take a car out of your name?

I'm selling my old Honda Pilot to a friend. How can I take the car out of my name?

Lucky for you, this is pretty easy! To take a car out of your name, you need to transfer the title to your friend.
Make sure you fill in your information in the seller section and your friend’s information in the buyer section. In some states, a notary must be present. You may also need to fill out additional paperwork to finalize the sale. It’s best to check with your state DMV for specific rules and regulations regarding a vehicle sale and transferring ownership.
Once you’ve officially transferred the title, be sure to remove your car from your car insurance. As you’re no longer the owner, your friend will need their own insurance policy.
