Louisiana’s title documents are frequently changed from If your Louisiana title does not look like the ones pictured online, there could be a few possible reasons:
Older title design: Your vehicle title may be an older version with a different design. States periodically update the design of their titles, so if your title is older, it may not match the current format displayed online.
Replacement title: If you had to request a duplicate title at some point, the replacement title design might be different from the original.
Non-Louisiana title: If your vehicle was previously titled in another state, the title design may differ from Louisiana titles. When registering the vehicle in Louisiana, you should have received a Louisiana title, but it’s possible that you still have the out-of-state title.
If you are unsure whether your title is valid or you have concerns about its authenticity, contact the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) for guidance. They can provide information on the legitimacy of your title, as well as any necessary steps to resolve any issues.
Keep in mind that when selling your car, you must provide the buyer with a valid and properly transferred title. If you have concerns about your title, address them before finalizing the sale to avoid potential complications.

In Louisiana, license plates typically stay with the vehicle when it is sold, and the new owner will be responsible for transferring the registration and title. As a seller, you generally do not need to turn in your license plate to the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) after selling your car.
However, if you have personalized or specialty plates, you may want to remove them before completing the sale. In this case, you can either:
Transfer the plates to another vehicle you own: You will need to notify the OMV and provide the necessary information for the transfer. Make sure to update your auto insurance policy to reflect this change as well.
Surrender the plates to the OMV: If you do not wish to use the personalized or specialty plates on another vehicle, you can turn them in at your local OMV office. You may be eligible for a refund of the unused portion of the registration fee, depending on the specific circumstances.
Remember, regulations and requirements may change, so it’s always a good idea to check with the Louisiana OMV for the most up-to-date information on license plate policies.
After selling your car in Louisiana, you should take the following steps regarding your auto insurance:
Notify your insurance company: Contact your insurance agent or company to inform them about the sale of your vehicle. They will need to know the date of the transaction and any other relevant details.
Adjust or cancel your policy: Depending on your situation, you may need to either cancel the policy or adjust it to cover a different vehicle. If you have purchased a new car, provide your insurance company with the necessary information to transfer the coverage or update the policy accordingly. If you do not plan on getting a new vehicle, you may need to cancel the policy altogether.
Obtain proof of coverage or cancellation: Request a confirmation of the policy changes or cancellation from your insurance company. This documentation may be necessary for your records or if you need to provide proof of insurance for a new vehicle.
Consider potential refunds: If you prepaid your insurance premium and cancel your policy before the end of the coverage period, you might be eligible for a prorated refund. Ask your insurance company about their refund policy and whether you qualify.
Update your insurance if you retain personalized or specialty plates: If you removed personalized or specialty plates from the sold vehicle and plan to use them on another car, make sure to update your insurance policy accordingly.
Keep in mind that maintaining auto insurance is generally required by law when you own and operate a vehicle, so if you purchase a new car or continue to drive another vehicle, you will need to ensure you have proper coverage in place. It’s a good idea to consult your insurance agent or company for any specific questions or guidance regarding your unique circumstances.
After selling your car in Louisiana, there are several steps to follow to ensure a smooth and legal transfer of ownership. Keep in mind that regulations and requirements may change over time, so it’s always a good idea to check with the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) for the most up-to-date information.
Bill of Sale: Complete a bill of sale with the buyer, which should include the vehicle’s make, model, year, VIN, sale price, buyer and seller’s names, addresses, and signatures. Keep a copy for your records.
Transfer the Title: Sign the title over to the buyer by completing the seller section, which usually includes the date of sale, odometer reading, and your signature. The buyer will need to complete their portion of the title as well.
Notice of Vehicle Transfer: Submit a Notice of Vehicle Transfer (Form DPSMV 1697) to the Louisiana OMV. This form notifies the OMV that you’ve sold your vehicle, and it helps protect you from potential liability in case the buyer doesn’t register the car.
License Plates: In Louisiana, license plates typically stay with the vehicle. However, if you have personalized or specialty plates, you may want to remove them and transfer them to another vehicle or surrender them to the OMV.
Cancel Insurance: Notify your insurance company about the sale, and cancel or adjust your policy accordingly.
Keep Records: Retain copies of all documents related to the sale for your records.
Remember, this is only general guidance, and you should consult the Louisiana OMV or a legal professional for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
