New Federal Rule on Odometer Disclosure  New!

2011 vehicles did not become odometer exempt on January 1, 2021. You must complete an Odometer Disclosure on any 2011 or newer vehicle.

Effective January 1, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration requires odometer disclosures until vehicles are 20 years old, beginning with vehicles of the 2011 model year. The previous rule was 10 years.

You must disclose the mileage even if the title or Dealer Reassignment form says "Exempt - Model year over 9 years old." Titles and forms now being issued reflect the new rule.

Vehicles that are weight exempt (over 16,000 pounds GVWR) remain exempt under the new rule.

More About Disclosure

2011 vehicles will become exempt from odometer disclosure in the year 2031. 2012 vehicles will be exempt in 2032 and so on. See the News Release for more information.

Watch your trade-ins:

  • Vehicle ownership transfers using a bill of sale and application for duplicate title and/or multiple bills of sale will not be allowed for model year 2011 and newer vehicles.
  • Multiple private party sales will not be allowed for model year 2011 and newer vehicles.
  • Use of a non-Secure Power of Attorney for a vehicle sale will not be allowed for 2011 and newer vehicles.
