Transfer Vehicle from
One Immediate Family Member to Another
***Important notice on Passport to the Parks fee below***
If you are registering a vehicle that was previously registered and titled to an immediate family member (mother, father, wife, husband, civil union partner, daughter, son, sister, brother), you must proceed to your local DMV Hub Office or Limited Service Office and provide the following:
If the vehicle was previously registered in Connecticut and is not in compliance with Emissions
, you may register it first, however you will need to have the vehicle Emissions tested within 30 days of the date of registration or you will accrue a late fee. You will not receive a notice for testing.
To find out if the vehicle you are buying is in compliance, check the date on-line or call (888) 828-8399. Please have Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) ready.
A vehicle exempt from sales tax by a family or business relationship cannot be registered if delinquent property tax
is owed or if the registration is under suspension.
Beginning in 2018, Connecticut will offer all residents with Connecticut license plates on their vehicles free parking at all state parks and beaches. Connecticut wants to make state parks, forests, trails, historic sites and beaches more available to our residents so they can enjoy the many attractions and beauty they offer.
A $10 fee, which amounts to $5 per year, will be included in all two-year non-commercial vehicles with new registrations, renewals and plate transfers. These are passenger cars and vehicles with combination plates
as well as motorcycles, campers/motor homes and vehicles with antique car plates.
In addition, seniors 65 years old and older with a one-year registration renewal will have only an additional $5 fee each year.
The new program allows the State of Connecticut to give more to the public that has now invested in our park system: Increased lifeguards, improved park maintenance, shoulder season camping for opening day of fishing and into the fall foliage, and longer hours at our museums and nature centers. When people visit our state parks and other sites they visit local restaurants, shops and local farms. This program brings many economic benefits for our state.
