Bike Insurance Transfer

Transferring Ownership of a Bike in 3 Simple Steps

Selling a bike is more than just handing over your keys to the new owner. Transferring a bike properly to a new owner should involve these following steps.

  • Step 1: Apply for bike ownership transfer at a Regional Transport Office. Make sure that it is the same RTO where your initial registration for the vehicle took place.
  • Step 2: Submit Form 29 and Form 30, registration certificate, emission test papers, insurance documents and other paperwork at the Directorate of Transport Office. You will also need to submit passport sized photographs.
  • Step 3: After all documents are submitted, the registering authority verifies them and, if everything is in order, transfers ownership of the bike.

Buyers can use the table illustrated below to understand their obligations during a bike ownership transfer.


What you Must do

If the buyer resides in the same state as seller.

If the buyer and seller reside in different states.

If the bike’s owner dies before officially transferring ownership.
