“First and foremost, you will need to get proof from your lender that you have paid off your auto loan. Then you will need to submit this proof to the appropriate local government office (i.e., the DMV or RTO) and fill out any forms, if necessary.
This process usually takes about 30 days or so to complete, and when you’re finished, you will be the legal owner of your car. “

Why won't my auto insurance cover my husband's injuries?
"My husband and I got into an accident, but I was declared not at fault. My insurance initially said they would cover my medical bills and some of his since he was a passenger. Now that it's time to cover our expenses, they are saying they're only going to cover mine. We don't have health insurance right now and he has his own car insurance. Is there any way to get his bills covered?"
