Motor Vehicle Certificate of Title

A Certificate of Title is required for all types of vehicles  driven or moved on the highways and roads of the State of Nebraska unless the  vehicle falls under the specific category of Motor Vehicles Exempt from  Titling.

No person shall sell or dispose of a motor vehicle, without  delivering to the purchaser a properly assigned Certificate of Title or  Manufacturer's Statement of Origin (MSO).

Upon transfer of a vehicle, all owners listed on the  Certificate of Title must sign their name(s) exactly as it appears on the face  of the title.  In the case of a business, an authorized representative of  the company must sign off in the company name, as well as, their name as said  representative of the company.  The buyer's name(s) and signature(s) must also  be completed at this time.

To obtain a Certificate of Title, you must be a resident of  Dawson County and submit a completed Application for Certificate of Title signed by all parties whose names are to appear on the title.  The only  exception to this are titles held by husband and wife, in which case either one,  acting as an agent for the other, may sign the application.

The fee for a Certificate of Title is $10.00
