BUYER BEWARE! – TITLE AND SERIAL NUMBER CHECK Before purchasing any motor vehicle, make certain that the current owner can provide a valid title for the vehicle. Be sure to verify that the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) matches the number reflected on the title. This number is typically located on the dashboard on the driver’s side and is usually visible through the windshield. If these numbers do not match, insist that the discrepancy be corrected or do not complete the transaction.

Forms must be completed and mailed or brought in person to:

Mercer County Clerk
P.O. Box 426
Harrodsburg, KY 40330

Forms cannot be e-mailed or faxed as they must contain the original signature.
