The vehicle seller must complete a Notice of Vehicle Sold form (MVD-10048) under Section 66-3-101(A) of NMSA 1978. This form should be sent by mail to the Motor Vehicle Division of Santa Fe or online. The document notifies the relevant state agencies that the vehicle previously owned by the seller has been transferred to another person and is no longer in this resident’s possession. The Notice should include the VIN of the sold vehicle, its make, model, model year, license plate number, and the date of the sale. The vehicle’s odometer mileage is also recorded in the Notice at the moment of transfer. Inclusion of incorrect details into the Notice is regarded as perjury per the Motor Vehicle Code and is legally prosecuted as a fourth-degree felony.
