    Bike Insurance Transfer Form & Transfer Fees

    If you are looking to transfer the ownership of a bike or scooter, you can draft an application and present it at the RTO office at which the particular two wheeler is registered. To be eligible for a two wheeler ownership transfer, there must be a purchase of a second-hand vehicle in which case the buyer may apply for the transfer of ownership, or the death of a registered owner of a vehicle in which case the application must be drafted by the legal heirs of the deceased owner.

    In case a two wheeler is transferred to another individual who resides in the same state as the owner, the owner must report details regarding the transfer to the pertinent registering authority within two weeks of the transfer. In case a two wheeler is sold to an individual who resides in a different state as the owner, the concerned authority must be notified about the transfer by the seller within 45 days after the transfer. The concerned authority must also be notified by the purchaser about the transfer within 30 days after buying the two wheeler. In case the owner of a two wheeler has died, the individual who has acquired the bike or scooter must inform the concerned authority with 30 days, and must apply for a transfer of ownership within three months.

    Documents Required for Transfer of Ownership of Two Wheelers in case of Sale / Purchase

    Transfer of Insurance And Applicable Fee

    Apart from transferring the vehicle ownership, the insurance policy also needs to be transferred in your name. The process would involve the following steps:
