When titling a vehicle less than ten years old motorists must present an odometer mileage statement from the selling car dealer or an individual on the appropriate form. Tennessee titles issued on or after January 1, 1990, have the new format on the back of the title certificate. Tennessee titles issued prior to this date provide an invalid odometer format. This was changed by Federal law, requiring each state to have the same odometer requirements.

Larger vehicles weighing more than 16,000 pounds are not subject to this odometer law.


Please note this important exception to the Power of Attorney designation on your odometer certifications. The exception is: Power of Attorney designations cannot authorize a person to sign the odometer certification both as the seller and the buyer of a vehicle.
