I went to our lovely DMV yesterday to get info on what paper work i need to sell an island car....no leins etc...well the line was long and the girl shuffled papers, walked throughout the office and finally returned and get this....stated....please call us and we can answer your questions...I'm not sure why she just couldn't do it then..

I know i have to fill out the back of the registration form and get it notorized and I need a bill of sale and i picked up a application for transfer form...anything else anyone can think of?

That story is priceless!! It sums up the downside of island living. (sorry-- I have no information for you on selling a car)

You should have dialed them on your cell phone and asked her to pick up the ringing phone 🙂

Peter,
Selling a car isn't quite as complicated as buying, I don't think. I recommend finding a notary that does a lot of this, and they will most likely be able to walk you through the process. I know Sondra at Blade and Key in Red Hook knows the steps. She requires the seller and buyer to come to her together.

step 1: get lien clearance from Lt Gov office
step 2: sign title and registration have notarized, take buyer with you at the time
step 3 have buyer get ins.
step 4: take buyer and auto to DMV
step 5: have ticket check done
step six: wait in line lol
good luck!

take it from me.......

do it like all of the others do here...

put sign on car, fix car only enough to get it past the testdrive,
give buyer wrong info on your address, sell the car, leave the island, strand some poor soul in a mucked-up mire of forms and procedures dating from the 1800's and with government workers who don't care to help you resolve the issue.

Bring back honor and justice to the islands, get rid of the gansta rap and the illegals, DO THE RIGHT THING instead of the status quo...

Just my two pennies..

Argh...

as Peggy said, you need a notarized title transfer and registration - my most excellently thorough DMV agent also required me to have the bill of sale notarized (which was very puzzling to the notary when I returned to her right after lunch, though she was willing to notarize that too for another $5). Note that the Seller has to cancel insurance and buyer has to purchase insurance. We did not actually need our vehicle at DMV - nobody looked at it. They only looked at the paperwork - that was on STT.

I suspect no matter what you do, you will have to do something different - just keep smilin'! At least you are standing in line in the Caribbean!
