The Missouri Vehicle Bill of Sale is a legal document that is used in the sale and purchase of a motor vehicle. This document provides information with regard to the seller as well as the buyer. It also provides important information about the vehicle being sold and purchased. This form may also be used to prove an “Even-Trade” and the change of ownership. There is notarization required if the vehicle has been rebuilt or if there is a specific request that it be notarized, by a notary with the Department of Revenue. This document will be required as a part of the process for registration in the state of Missouri. Since this information is needed for the purchase or trade of a motor vehicle, this is the only section of the form that needs to be completed.

Odometer Disclosure Statement (Form 3019) – Should be filled-in by the seller at the time of sale and then be used by the new owner at the time of registration.
