Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

Can you use a dirt bike as collateral for a loan?

Yes, you can use your dirt bike as collateral in some situations. You will need to find a lender that offers secured loans that can be backed by a dirt bike.

Like any other type of loan, you will need several documents, including a valid government-issued ID, to apply.

How do you get a title for a motorcycle?

A motorcycle title is proof of ownership. You will need that title if you plan on using your motorcycle to secure a title loan. When you buy a motorcycle, new or used, you should get a motorcycle title or a bill of sale.

If you get a bill or sale instead of the title, take it to a nearby Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or local title office to receive a new title for your motorcycle.

Is it hard to get a title for a motorcycle?

Obtaining a motorcycle title is the same as getting a title for a car or any other kind of vehicle. Make sure that you get the title or bill of sale from the seller.

If you do not have a title or bill of sale, you will need to show proof of ownership in a different way at the DMV or title office. If you never received a bill of sale or title, you may need to get in contact with the seller or obtain a title via a court order.
