In the State of Oregon you must complete the odometer disclosure statement in the Reassignment section found on the back of the vehicle’s Certificate of title for all vehicles model year 2011 or newer, self-propelled, and with a registered weight of 16,000 lbs. or less.
You are exempt from odometer disclosure requirements in the State of Oregon if the vehicle is a model year 2010 or older, not self-propelled, a trailer or a camper or a vehicle with a gross weight rating over 16,000 pounds. Also you don’t need an odometer disclosure statement for a Class 1 ATV or a snowmobile, a moped or a scooter. Also in a Title transfer when at least one owner is staying on the title you are exempt from mileage disclosure as well.
However if you don’t have the Vehicle Title, you can get a secure Odometer Disclosure form by contacting here Oregon Driver & Motor Vehicle Services. This secure form is printed on tamperproof paper and unfortunately can’t be downloaded.
Please note that you must take an odometer reading in any private transaction, even if you sell to a family member or you donate the vehicle if it’s a model year 2011 or newer and the vehicle is not exempt.
As a conclusion, for a used vehicle, you need the certification of the odometer mileage on the back of the title (when it’s signed over). Remember to never buy a vehicle without receiving the title signed by the previous owner with the odometer statement filled out!
But even if in the state of Oregon a separate Odometer Disclosure Statement is not required you will find below, for your safety when you sell a vehicle, an optional supplementary Oregon Odometer Disclosure Statement form. By filling out this optional federal form you will be able to keep for yourself the odometer disclosure record and prevent future claims from the buyer.
Oregon Odometer Statement Federal Form
Below you can find the optional Oregon federal fillable PDF form for your use in the state of Oregon.
The Federal Odometer Disclosure Statement form has three sections. And below you’ll learn how to fill out this generic form:
The first section includes the full name of the seller. Particularly the name must pe PRINTED. So this means to use only Capital Letters to write SELLER’S NAME. Next include all the vehicle details starting with the current odometer reading. However if the odometer reading is in excess of the mechanical limits of the odometer or is not the actual mileage please check the corresponding box:
In the second section fill out the Seller (Transferor) Information. Here complete the seller’s signature and name. Please write SELLER’S NAME using only Capital Letters. Lastly fill out the seller’s address:
In the last section fill out the Buyer (Transferee) Information. So include here the buyer’s signature and name. Please write BUYER’S NAME using only Capital Letters. Finally complete buyer’s address, and date of certification:
Here you can fill out the optional Oregon Odometer Disclosure Statement Form.
If you want to know how to get an exact odometer reading you can find all the details here: Reading the Odometer – How to read an Odometer.
You can also fill out the form by hand. However don’t forget to use a pen with black or blue ink and not a pencil!
How to complete the Oregon Odometer Statement
Below you can find all the details that will help you to complete the odometer reading statement on the back of the Oregon Certificate of Title in the Reassignment section. Please use a pen with blue or black ink and not a pencil. Especially be careful not to make any alteration or erasure on the title because doing so will void the title! Also before you write on the title read first all the instructions carefully.
First the seller certifies the vehicle transfer. So the seller completes first the date of sale or transfer. Next the seller completes the FULL PRINTED NAME of the buyer and buyer’s address, city, state and ZIP code.
After that the seller certifies the current odometer reading as the Actual Mileage. Here please use 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 can check the second box only if the Odometer reading entered is NOT the Actual Mileage (Warning – Odometer Discrepancy).
Next all sellers or owners shown on the front of the title, who are releasing their interest, must HAND PRINT their name exactly as it appears on the title and must sign.
After that complete the seller’s address ONLY if different from the front of the title!
Finally the buyer acknowledges the odometer disclosure made by the seller or agent, HAND PRINTS their name and signs:
