Car (Vehicle) Receipt Template

Updated August 02, 2023

A car receipt acts as proof of payment for any type of sale, rental, or service provided involving a vehicle. A receipt should only be issued after the seller has been fully paid or the terms of any financing or lease have been fulfilled. A receipt is commonly required by State DMV Offices when accepting new registration for the vehicle.

Bill of Sale – Used as a purchase agreement between a buyer and seller.

Proof of Receipt

A proof of receipt for a vehicle transaction is required by most Department of Motor Vehicle offices before a new or used car can be registered in the State. The receipt must be signed by the seller or lessor and, in some States, as well as the buyer or lessee.

Vehicle Sales Receipt

In a vehicle sales receipt, a full description must be given including make, model, year, color, and the odometer reading must be included. Some States may require additional information such as the last time the vehicle was inspected or, like in New Hampshire, the number (#) of cylinders must be included.

Odometer Disclosure Statement – This form must be brought, in addition to a sales receipt or bill of sale, to the DMV office as a requirement for registration.
