In most states it is as simple as the seller signing the title over to the buyer and then talking it down to the county clerk and recorder. They will give you a new title with your name on it. You will probably be required to show a buyers order (simply a written or typed piece of paper that says the seller, blank agrees to sell the vehicle for such and such a price) and sometimes proof of purchase.
