Registering a Vehicle in New Mexico

Those who want to register their newly acquired vehicle have to submit the relevant package of documents to a local MVD office:

  • A certificate of title (the assignment of title section should be completed by the previous owner of the vehicle). The original form should be submitted, and no copies are accepted.
  • An Odometer Statement Disclosure (form 10187) (the document should be signed by both the buyer and the seller to certify the current mileage of the vehicle)
  • An accurately completed vehicle bill of sale
  • A completed Vehicle Title and Registration application (MVD form 10002)
  • Active proof of insurance (a copy of the insurance card)
  • Proof of identity
  • Receipts for the paid taxes and fees due for the vehicle’s registration

Fees for registered used motor vehicles in New Mexico are set depending on the vehicle type, starting from $27 and ending with $62 (for one year) or $54-124 for two years of registration.

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.
