When you buy a vehicle in the State of Idaho you need a Bill of Sale Form documenting both the change in ownership and the selling price. The State of Idaho provides a specific Bill of Sale Form.
The following information should appear on the Idaho Bill of Sale Form:
– Name and complete address of the seller.
– Name and complete address of the buyer.
– Complete vehicle description, including Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), make, model, year.
– Vehicle odometer reading at the time of sale.
– The selling price.
– Date of sale.
– Signature of the seller.
The seller is responsible to complete and sign a Bill of Sale Form ITD 3738, naming the buyer as the new owner of the vehicle.
You should notify the DMV that you’ve transferred vehicle ownership out of your name so you aren’t held responsible for the vehicle anymore. Do this by using this form Notice of Release of Liability ITD 3858.

The duties of the transportation department involve all modes of state wide transportation to move interstate commerce, out-of-state visitors and Idaho’s 1.2 million population. Making the transportation department understandable to the public is the core concern and reason.
The state transportation system is inextricably woven into the fabric of Idaho life. The state’s citizens use Idaho’s transportation system to get to work, school, friends and recreation.
They also rely on that system to bring goods to their stores, services to their doorstep, and to make sure the state’s goods and services are delivered to the customers of the nation and the world. From the food they eat, to the letters they read, to the movies they drive to, Idahoans are empowered by transportation in complex and substantial ways. Idaho’s leaders and transportation officials understand the essential role transportation plays as a cornerstone for the state’s economic and social health. The transportation department’s mandate is to provide the people of Idaho with a transportation system that includes various means of travel.
