How do I register a used car in Utah?

I just moved to Utah and bought a used pickup truck from a man on Craigslist. How do I register a used car in this state?

Congrats on your move! Registering a used car in Utah is a relatively simple process. All you will need to do is fill out some forms and make a trip to the DMV.
Before heading out to the DMV, you’ll need the following information about your vehicle:
  • Title
  • Proof of insurance
  • Registration card (most recent)
  • VIN for the vehicle, as well as serial inspection, when required
  • Gas or diesel emission certificate, when required
You may obtain your new registration by presenting the signed title, proof of insurance, and photo ID to a DMV clerk.
Since you’re new to Utah, make sure you update your car insurance to meet Utah’s minimum insurance requirements. An easy way to do this is by using the number one rated car insurance app in the Apple store, Jerry. Jerry compares personalized quotes from top providers, including Nationwide, Allstate, and Travelers, and delivers the best deals to your phone in minutes for free. The average Jerry driver saves $879 a year on car insurance!
Hope this helps!
