In the State of Wyoming you have to disclose the odometer reading for any vehicle model year 2011 or newer, self-propelled and below 16,000 pounds. Usually the Odometer Statement is completed on the back of the vehicle’s Certificate of Title in the Assignment of Ownership section. Also title applications and related operations are processed by the local county clerk office in the county seat of the county of residence. Therefore each county in the State of Wyoming has specific legal requirements about what an Odometer Disclosure Statement must contain and some operations need to be notarized.
These type of vehicles are exempt from odometer disclosure requirements in the State of Wyoming: vehicles model year 2010 or older, vehicles over 16,000 lbs., not self-propelled vehicles (trailer-type), low-speed vehicles (LSV), scooters, and mopeds.
Be very careful and don’t make any alterations when you write on the back of the title otherwise you will void the title. Also the seller MUST sign in the presence of a Notary Public. So as a seller DON’T SIGN on the title in the absence of a notary! Also use a pen with blue or black ink and write your name identical as it appears on the front of the title. If there is an AND on the front of the title, ALL owners (sellers) must sign. With an OR on the title, only one of the owners is required to sign to release the title.
Federal and State regulations require that the seller to state the mileage upon transfer of ownership of a motor vehicle. Failure to complete or providing a false statement may result in fines and/or imprisonment!
