Vehicle Sale Receipt

This document can be used as a receipt for the private sale of a car, van, motorbike, scooter or any vehicle which is sold "as seen". It allows the buyer and seller to agree and acknowledge payment and exchange of the vehicle, and can be modified to take account of numerous factors including:

  • the details of the vehicle
  • differing payment arrangements
  • DVLA registration
  • roadworthiness

The receipt sets out that the vehicle is sold "as seen". This means that it has been visually inspected and is sold in the condition accepted following by the buyer. However it should be noted that this does not absolve the seller of responsibility for the vehicle to be in the condition as described in any advertisements or representation to the buyer, or for certain flaws which may be hidden. In all circumstances the seller should describe the vehicle accurately and make the buyer aware of any issues or flaws that they are aware of.

Please note that the document cannot be used for commercial sales (that is where one party is a conducting the sale in the course of business) or if the vehicle has not been visually inspected.


How to use the document

Two copies of the document should be created. Once both parties have read and agreed the contents of the receipt they should both sign each copy and then be given a signed copy each.

During completion of the receipt, and thereafter, it is important that the parties undertake the necessary steps for notifying the DVLA of the change in ownership of the vehicle. Further advice can be found online on the DVLA website.


Any applicable law

s.75 Road Traffic Act 1988
