I live in PA but here you still have to transfer the title even if it’s a gift. You do it the same way as buying, go to a AAA or another place that does titles. You need both people, both drivers license and your insurance. you just pay less because it’s a gift and don’t have to pay tax on it.

We gifted a car to someone, and in VA, both parties went to the DMV and did a title transfer. Usually you do it in the DMV for the county/area in which the car is currently registered.
