Change of ownership of vehicles between family members
If you are going to buy a car that is already registered, you must change the ownership of the vehicle at the Registry of the General Directorate of Traffic. Before proceeding with the change of ownership, both the seller and the buyer must sign the contract of sale. To do so, you can follow our advice on how to sign the contract of sale.
If, on the other hand, you have bought the car from a private individual, we are going to tell you all the steps you must follow to correctly carry out the change of ownership of a vehicle in a sale-purchase agreement.
When you have gathered all the previous documentation and it is complete, you will have to present it at any Jefatura de Tráfico, for which you will have to make an appointment. Once there, you will also have to pay the fees, for which you must take into account that cash payment is not allowed. The change of ownership fee costs 53.40 euros, while the vehicle transfer notification fee is 8.30 euros.
A good option to speed up the process of the change of ownership of the car is to do it through an agency, although to the amount of the fees detailed above, you will have to add the fees of the agency, which are usually around 60 euros.

Before proceeding to the change of ownership of the car, you must download the application for the transfer of name and prepare it along with the documentation indicated above and a photocopy of the contract of sale and the ID of the seller. With this, you will be able to proceed with this procedure.
In the case that the change of ownership of a car is due to the death of the owner, the procedure is different, since it will be necessary to present the death certificate, the liquidation of the Inheritance Tax or the will.
For this type of procedure, at SGS ITV we recommend that you carry out the procedure through an agency. They will ask you for the necessary documentation and will take care of all the steps to follow to finalize the change of ownership of the car. You can also do it through a gestoría if the change is not due to death but as a result of the sale and purchase of a vehicle.

The second hand car market has always been a good option when buying a car. Normally for the transfer of a vehicle between individuals, you go to an agency to take care of all the paperwork in exchange for an economic disbursement. However, these procedures are not too complicated and if we do them on our own we will save a lot of money.
To complete the transfer of a car or any other motorized vehicle you have to complete paperwork with two institutions: Treasury and the General Directorate of Traffic.

The task of buying a second-hand car does not end after the purchase contract is signed and the keys are placed 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 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.
