The Illinois Motor Vehicle Division does not offer a standard bill of sale form that you can fill out.

If you decide to write your own bill of sale, make sure to include the following information:

  • Date of sale
  • Cost of vehicle purchase
  • Your full name and address
  • Buyer's full name and address
  • Vehicle's year, make, model, identification number and mileage
  • Acknowledgement of any liens held on the vehicle

After you and the buyer sign the bill of sale, you should make a copy for yourself and hand the buyer the original.

You can also download a generic bill of sale from Digital Federal Credit Union.

Don't forget that you also need to fill out a Form RUT-50 if you buy a vehicle from a private party or receive it as a gift from a private party.

If you need to sell a vehicle and you are out of state, you may give someone a limited power of attorney just for the purpose of the vehicle sale.  You can download a standard Illinois form from the Secretary of State.
