The task of buying a second-hand car does not end after you have signed the contract of sale and put the keys in your new vehicle. There is one more step you have to take at the Dirección General de Tráfico (DGT) to tie everything up and avoid problems in the future: the change of ownership of the car, also known as the transfer of the vehicle.
When it is a second-hand car that is already registered, changing the ownership of the vehicle at the DGT is something that, as a buyer, you should do immediately after the purchase, if possible within the first ten days of the sale. Although you have a month to do it, the sooner you do it, the sooner you will appear as the new owner in the Registry of the General Directorate of Traffic.
If you have bought your second-hand car through a dealership or second-hand car buying and selling company, in principle this company will take care of all the procedures for the change of ownership and will give you the Technical Vehicle Inspection (ITV) card and the vehicle registration certificate already in your name.

Consult vehicle transfer
You will be able to carry out this usual transfer by two different ways: a donation or a sale. Both will entail a different procedure and necessary documentation and for both it will be necessary to pay taxes; the tax will be higher or lower depending on the way you choose.
We warn that the request of the proof of the bank transaction by the Tax Authorities to the seller of the vehicle is increasing, in order to verify that it is really a sale and not a donation.
Whether you make the transfer of the vehicle in the form of donation or sale, the traffic tax to be paid for the change of ownership will be 54.6 euros for vehicles in general and 27.3 euros for mopeds (MAKE IT WITH US MUCH CHEAPER USING THE PROMOTIONAL CODE “T24HOME”).
This tax must be paid after the Tax of the Treasury (ISD for donations and ITP for sale and purchase). To do this, you must make an appointment at the Traffic Headquarters and pay by credit card, debit card, or online through the DGT; once these steps have been completed, you can change the vehicle’s name.

Before transferring a vehicle, it is necessary to check that the vehicle is transferable: The vehicle must be registered and up to date in the payment of local taxes and penalties related to the vehicle (vehicle documentation, compulsory insurance, periodic vehicle inspections (ITV) and its state of conservation). The existence of a reservation of ownership, seizure, or a sealing order on the vehicle may entail certain limitations when transferring or notifying the sale.
In any case the procedure must be carried out by the buyer or his representative. At the moment of submitting the request we will provide you with a receipt. If we need any clarification or correction of your request, we will contact you by telephone or e-mail. Once the transfer has been made, we will send you to the address indicated the documentation of the vehicle already in your name.
