From Wikiprocedure
Jump to: navigation, search


Once the notification of sale has been submitted and registered, the buyer (the new owner) listed on the notification of sale will receive the invoice for the annual motor vehicle tax, toll road charges and any penalties or fines that should be paid. If the NPRA does not receive a correctly completed notification of sale, the seller (the former owner) will continue receiving such claims, even if the vehicle is no longer in his/her possession. Both the buyer and the seller must correctly enter their personal information to properly complete the transfer of vehicle ownership.

Seller's Responsibilities

It is the responsibility of the seller to prepare the notification of sale with the buyer, once the notification is completed he/she will then send it by post or personally submit it to a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office.

The seller will also have to send/submit 'part 2' of the vehicle registration certificate needed in the transfer and pay any annual vehicle tax due.

Buyers responsibilities

The buyer must help the seller in the preparation of the notification of sale.

When registering the vehicle, the buyer must be able to present an ID bearing his/her personal identity number (11 digits), or his/her organization number.

It is also the responsibility of the buyer to secure an insurance for the vehicle being registered and pay for the cost of registering the change of ownership
