Buying a Vehicle in New Hampshire

The buyer should apply for a new Title at the town/city clerk’s office and register the vehicle. A title fee will apply, along with the appropriate registration fees.

When a New Hampshire resident buys a vehicle from a New Hampshire dealer, the dealership will complete the title application for them. Then the dealership will send it in to the DMV to be processed, along with the corresponding fee. The dealer will provide the buyer with a blue carbon-copy of the title application. This title application copy must be brought to the town/city clerk in order to register the vehicle.

Out of state vehicle dealers may not prepare a New Hampshire Title application. So if a New Hampshire resident buys a vehicle from an out-of-state dealer, the dealership shall provide the owner with either the Certificate of Origin or the Certificate of title. The buyer must apply for a new Title at the town/city clerk’s office and register the vehicle. A title fee applies, along with the appropriate registration fees. A VIN verification may be necessary.
