Sold my car to a woman up North by Seattle almost 2 years ago for 750.00. A month ago I was notified that the car had been in an accident and my licence would be suspended because I didn't have insurance on the car I had sold. I mailed the licence transfer to the DOL within 3 days of the sale. At her insistence, I also typed out a bill of sale and kept a copy on my computer. I also sent The Department Of Licencing a copy of the ad I place with Craig's List with the expiration date on it. These were sent to Washington DOL along with a letter explaining the circumstances around the whole situation. I am also wondering how they managed to get tabs on the car as you have to show ID to do that. Now the lawyer from the insurance company is contacting me wanting proof of the sale, I would have thought that they would go after the driver.
I did everything that I was required to do by law and have no idea how they (the DOL) could have lost the transfer of title. Any Ideas on what I should do next? I'm waiting on a notification as to when the DOL is going to call and have a verbal discussion with me before they decide whether or not to suspend my licence or not

As long as you properly notified the DOL and kept copies of the relevant paperwork, you should be ok.

Have you notified the DOL to inform them of the transfer and update them on your current status as to the owner of the vehicle?
