If you are dealing with a DMV that is helpful they will tell you all of this. I went in with my bill of sale they handed me the VIN verification form and I took it and the bike to an officer. He verified that the VIN on the form and bill of sale was the same VIN on the bike and he signed the paper I took the bill of sale and now police signed VIN verification form to the DMV and said I wanted a plate and title. Wam bam thank you maam. Like it was said before go to another DMV. Small towns are always the best.
