I can tell you California but somebody from that area should correct me if it's different. You need the Title to the car, with her signature on it, a certificate of emissions (passing test) a bill of sale stating price, (Here they charge tax. RI and Mass. idk if they do or not)... your drivers license, proof of insurance and the license plates so they can issue new ones for RI. And $25 fee.

Do I still need to get the bill of stating price even if I receive it as a gift?

I'd suggest getting on Rhode Island's DMV website. Or perhaps you can telephone them. HTH. -Jim

Do what Jim suggested. Without it in Calif. they charge the market value of car sales tax 7.25% but immediate family exempted
