Nope, it doesn't even have be registered. All you do is fill out the back of the title with the buyer's info and sign it.Originally Posted by SlamMan
If the front of your title doesn't list your name (ie it's just signed over to you on the back), then you need to go to the DMV and get a new title in your name, and then you can sign it over to the buyer. They can sometimes print one up on the spot, but if they have to mail it, you'll be waiting forever (I'm still waiting on one from mid-August). So in that case, you might as well bring the buyer to the DMV with you and have them issue the new title in his name.
