How do I get a title and/or registration for a vehicle imported into the U.S. from another country?

To obtain a Tennessee title and/or registration for a vehicle imported into the United States from another country, submit the following to your local county clerk:

  • Manufacturer’s Statement of Origin or Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin*;
  • Bill of sale;
  • Form HS-7 Declaration (Importation of Motor Vehicles and Motor Vehicle Equipment Subject to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety, Bumper and Theft Prevention Standards), attached below;
  • Clear and legible photograph of the vehicle’s Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards Label.

*To verify the manufacturer listed on the MSO/MCO by the vehicle identification number, go here.
