Always Record Your Vehicle Sale Immediately
When you get around to selling or donating your car, don't forget to promptly record it with the Department of Licensing. In Washington, there's a small cost of $8.75 to record the transfer of ownership and it's well worth it. Not all new owners are quick to do their part in registering the vehicle in their name, so even if you're told that they'll take care of it right away, don't count on that! Receiving unpaid parking tickets and camera generated speeding infractions from a car that's no longer yours is a big headache to say the least.
