The odometer reading is not required to be recorded in the assignment of an MSO. However, if the odometer reading is provided in the assignment of the MSO the odometer reading on the title application must be equal to or progressive with the odometer reading in the assignment, unless the vehicle is exempt from mileage. The odometer disclosure section of an MSO or out of state title is not required, by the state of Alabama, to be completed.
The odometer reading on all other transfers with a certificate of title require the mileage to be certified, therefore, the mileage on the application must agree exactly with the mileage listed in the title assignment on all other transfers.

If there is a variance in the owner’s name between the application and the assignment an affidavit attesting to the variance in the name may be provided.
If there is joint-ownership and the names are joined by “or”, only one owner is required to sign the title application.
If there is joint-ownership and the names are joined by “and”, then both owners are required to sign the title application.
Yes, a physical address located in Alabama must be provided for the owner on the application. A P.O. Box address may be provided for the special mailing address if there is no lienholder listed on the title application.
