The other person would need to apply for a new loan to pay off your existing loan. You cannot simply switch the names on your loan. But check with your lender for details.

Can someone take over car payments in a vehicle sale?

Yes, but typically the loan "originator" remains responsible unless the actual loan is transfered to the new purchaser. Letting someone "take over payments" on your loan is a very bad idea. If there should be an accident, the title is still in the sellers name and they remain ultimately responsible. I have had parents pay cash for a car for their kids and place themselves as the lienholder. Legally they can't be sued if there is an accident and the kids can't sell the car without the parents signing over the title.
