Transfer of ownership is a critical stage in the purchase of a used vehicle. Pay attention and carefully check the vehicle licence to make sure that every detail matches the vehicle you are buying, and that the seller is indeed the owner of the vehicle!
Transfer of vehicle ownership may be carried out at any Post Office branch that is connected to the Licence Bureau's computer system. The current vehicle licence, as well as the identity cards of the buyer and seller, must be presented and a fee paid. If the vehicle licence is valid and there is no lien or attachment on the vehicle, change of ownership will be registered on the spot.
Transfer of ownership must be carried out at the Licence Bureau for the following:  
  • Disabled person entitled to the disabled fee
  • An inherited vehicle
  • A diplomatic or U.N. vehicle
  • Bus - transfer of ownership is carried out through the Traffic Supervisor at the Ministry of Transport and Road Safety
  • Touring vehicle
  • Desert vehicle
  • A minor
  • A tourist
  • Administrator of an estate
  • As a result of a court ruling
  • A vehicle without an annual "Test"
