A Kentucky motor vehicle bill of sale is a document signed by a buyer and seller of a vehicle that functions as definitive proof of the transaction between the parties. In Kentucky, one does not need to acquire such a document in order to title or register their newly-acquired vehicle; however, either party may wish to complete and inscribe notarized signatures in order to obtain proof of purchase/transfer. The completed form should contain the make, model, mileage, VIN, and cost of the vehicle in question, as well as the personal information of both parties.
