|CHANGING OWNERSHIP OF A MOTOR VEHICLE IN TRINIDAD & TOBAGO
How to transfer your car in T&T.
You must register with the Trinidad & Tobago Transport Division any time you wish to buy, sell or change ownership of a motor vehicle. The registered owner and the new owner together must apply for a change of ownership within seven days of the sale or transfer. You must be at least 17 years old to change ownership of a vehicle.
Changing ownership of a motor vehicle and vehicle safety inspection can only be done at the Port of Spain, San Fernando and Tobago offices.
How do I change ownership?
The registered owner and the new owner must complete the transfer together and submit the following documents to the Transport Division office.
• Complete Change of Ownership Form No. 11
• Vehicle registration certificate and valid insurance certificate.

• Receipt of sale (where applicable).
• Prescribed transfer tax and fee.
The application is processed on the same day.
