In the State of Nevada when you transfer a vehicle you can complete the odometer disclosure statement on the front of vehicle’s Certificate of title – Form VP-2. You need to complete the odometer reading for vehicles that are model year 2011 or newer, below 16,000 pounds, self-propelled and that are not exempt from mileage disclosure. Moreover you must complete the odometer reading in any private transaction, even if you transfer the vehicle to a family member or you donate the vehicle. Be careful because the Nevada DMV will reject paperwork for sales of vehicles model year 2011 or newer unless the odometer disclosure is completed!
The following vehicle types are exempt from odometer reading in the State of Nevada: all vehicles model year 2010 or older, vehicles over 16,000 lbs. gross rated capacity, non-motorized vehicles (trailer-type), low-speed vehicles (LSV), mopeds, and scooters. Because there are different revisions of the Nevada Certificate of title you may encounter on old titles next to the odometer reading section “Exempt – Model year over 9 years old” – in this case check this box ONLY if the vehicle is a model year 2010 or older. Also on newer Nevada titles you will find next to the odometer reading section “Exempt – Model year over 20 years old” – again in this case you should check this box ONLY if the vehicle is a model year 2010 or older. The 20 years old rule applies only to vehicles model year 2011 or newer.
Even though in Nevada a separate Odometer Disclosure form is not required you can find a generic one below for your safety. Particularly by filling this optional federal form you will be able to keep the odometer disclosure record for yourself and prevent future claims from the buyer.

How to fill out the Nevada Odometer Disclosure Statement
Below you can find instructions to successfully complete the odometer reading statement on the front of the Nevada Certificate of Title. Please use a pen with black or blue ink and not a pencil and don’t make any alterations or erasures on the title! Before you start to write on the title please read first all the instructions.
First the seller certifies the vehicle transfer and fills in the details of the buyer(s). So fill in here the FULL PRINTED NAME of the buyer(s) and buyer’s Driver License or ID number. Then complete the buyer’s address, city, state and ZIP code.
Next the seller certifies the current odometer reading as the Actual Mileage. Use here only digits without tenths. Only if it’s the case the seller checks the first box if the Odometer reading entered is in EXCESS of the odometer’s mechanical limits. Or the seller may check the second box only if the Odometer reading entered is NOT the Actual Mileage (Warning: Odometer Discrepancy). Lastly the seller may check the third box if the vehicle is exempt from odometer reading. Remember: the 20 years old rule applies only to vehicles model year 2011 or newer and the 9 years old rule is not valid anymore. So all vehicles model year 2010 or older are now exempt.
Next complete seller’s signature and seller’s PRINTED NAME exactly as it appears on the title. Then complete the date of sale.
Finally the buyer(s) acknowledges the odometer certification made by the seller(s), signs, and completes his/her PRINTED NAME:
