in most states, as long as you have a bill of sale with the date of sell, signitures and driver liscense number of the person buying, you should be OK. if the new owner never registers the vehicle, and is driving the car with false or no plates, he will eventually get caught. If the new owner gets parking tickets on the vehicle, or if the vehicle gets towed, you need to prove that you sold the vehicle by presenting the bill of sale, and proof of the person you sold the vehicle to, via liscense number, name, address ect.

Yes you can sell it and even have it registered to the new owner, but the lien will remain on the vehicle until its paid.

The best bet is to have the new owner pay you the amount of the loan upfront as payment for the car, therefore you pay your loan and they buy their car.
