In the State of Missouri when you transfer your vehicle you have to complete the odometer disclosure statement on the back of the vehicle’s Certificate of title in the Assignment section. Please note that you have to complete the odometer reading for all vehicles that are model year 2011 or newer, below 16,000 pounds and that are not exempt from mileage disclosure.
The following vehicle types are exempt from odometer disclosure in the State of Missouri: all vehicles model year 2010 or older, all vehicles over 16,000 lbs., all non-motorized vehicles (trailer-type), low-speed vehicles (LSV), mopeds, and scooters.
Starting with the year 2006 all the Missouri issued titles have a tear-off Notice of Sale – Form DOR-5049A.
In some cases when a vehicle’s Certificate of Title or a Manufacturer’s Statement of Origin (MSO) doesn’t meet the
federal requirements for a proper odometer disclosure the seller will use the state-approved fillable PDF Form 3019. See details below.
Also if the seller knows that the correct mileage is different from the number of miles shown on the odometer or the true mileage is unknown, the seller must use the Form 1545. The Form DOR-1545 (08-2013) – Odometer Statement Of Explanation will accompany the assignment of title in this case.
