Yes it can, here are the items needed to transfer title.

Buying a MO Vehicle

You will have 30 days to title your vehicle and pay the taxes once you make a purchase. To complete the titling process, you will need to go to your local MO DMV office and submit:

  • A completed vehicle title signed by the seller of the vehicle, OR a Manufacturer's Statement of Origin for new cars purchased from a car dealer.
  • A completed Application for Missouri Title and License (Form DOR-108).
    • Make sure to check the “New Plates" box if you are registering the vehicle at the same time.
    • Check off the “Title Only" box if you do not want to register the vehicle right away.
  • A notarized Notice of Lien, Lien Release, or Authorization to Add/Remove Name from Title (Form DOR-4809), if required.
  • Proof of MO auto insurance.
  • Proof of a vehicle identification number (VIN) inspection and odometer inspection, if the previous title is not from Missouri.
  • Proof of a safety and/or emissions inspection from an authorized inspection station, if required (see “Vehicle Inspections" below).
  • Odometer disclosure statement (Form 3019), if the vehicle is less than 10 years old and is 16,000 lbs. or less.
  • Payment for your titling fees and taxes (see “Vehicle Titling Fees" below).
