If I buy a vehicle from out-of-state or move to Washington, do I still need to obtain an inspection of my car by the Washington State Patrol?

WSP will also perform inspections as required on vehicles reported stolen, homemade vehicles, vehicles without a proper VIN, when there is a VIN discrepancy, when there is a record dispute, when ownership is in doubt, or other special cases.

What do I do when I have paid off the loan on my car?
If you are financing your vehicle/vessel, your lender is holding your title. Once you have paid off the loan one of two things will occur:
- the lender will notify the State and have a new title issued and mailed to you.
- the lender will mail the signed off title to you. Once you receive the title from the lender, it is your responsibility to go into a licensing office and pay for a new title in your name only.
