A very special rule has been made for buying and selling old vehicles. This is called RC transfer, without this transfer you do not have full rights over the vehicle you have purchased. On the other hand, if you have sold a vehicle and its RC has not been transferred, then you can get into trouble if there is an accident or any kind of problem.
