How to document the sale of an unsafe motor vehicle

Because the dealer can sell a car that does not pass safety or emissions two separate forms are required:

  1. The Notice of Sale of Vehicle that Does Not Pass OBD II Emissions Testing:RDMV 950A must be issued anytime a vehicle is sold that does not pass emissions regardless if it passes the safety inspection. This must be signed by the consumer and the dealer and a copy must be sent to the NH Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
  2. The Notice of Sale of Unsafe Motor Vehicle: RMDV 950 must be issued for any vehicle that is sold with safety deficiencies. The consumer must sign the form and check whether they want to have a safety inspection or not. Although it is not required, NHADA believes that it is in the best interest of all parties to have a safety inspection completed and for the deficiencies to be listed on the form. This must be signed by the consumer and the dealer and a copy must be sent to the DMV.

It is important to note that both forms are necessary if the vehicle does not pass both emissions and safety. RDMV 950A and RDMV 950 forms can be obtained from the DMV’s Dealer Desk by sending a fax request to 603-271-1061.
