Who can sell the car if 2 names are on the title?

When a CA title has 2 names on it the way the names are recorded will decide who can sell the vehicle. If the names on the title read "person 1 / person 2" then both parties would have to sign off title to sell vehicle but when the title reads "person 1 or person 2 then only one of the two people have to sign the title in order to sell the vehicle. So basically if the names are recorded with a / (meaning end) between the names then both parties must sell but if the names are recorded with an OR between them then only one person has to sign off title for sale. Other states may be different, so check with your DMV to be sure. In some, "or" is used instead of "/."
