Salvage Vehicle Dealer Bill of Sale for a Junk Motor Vehicle (Form VTR-203)

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

The Vehicle Titles and Registration Division has undertaken an initiative to review, revise, and consolidate title related forms.  We have revised and renamed the Salvage Bill of Sale (Form VTR-203) as part of this initiative.  The revised and renamed Salvage Vehicle Dealer Bill of Sale for a Junked Motor Vehicle (Form VTR-203) is now available and attached for your convenience.

Form VTR-203 is currently only completed by salvage vehicle dealers.  The form is used to transfer a junked motor vehicle to a metal recycler if the original title for the junked vehicle was surrendered to the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) on the Surrendered Ownership Evidence for Vehicles to be Dismantled, Scrapped, or Destroyed (Form VTR-340).

During our review of Form VTR-203, we discovered salvage vehicle dealers rarely utilized more than a few of the 15 spaces that were available.  In an effort to streamline reporting and accurately update department motor vehicle records, the revised form only facilitates the transfer of a single motor vehicle. Additionally, the revised Form VTR-203 contains a new “Metal Recycler Certification” section that must be completed by the metal recycler upon permanent destruction of the motor vehicle.

Metal recyclers are still required to report permanently destroyed vehicles to the department on the Surrendered Ownership Evidence for Vehicles Permanently Destroyed (Form VTR-340-M).  The vehicle’s ownership evidence assigned to the metal recycler, which could be Form VTR-203, must continue to accompany the Form VTR-340-M.  As a reminder, metal recyclers are required to report permanently destroyed vehicles to the department within 60 days of permanent destruction.

The revised Form VTR-203 must be used for the transfer of any junked vehicle from a salvage vehicle dealer to a metal recycler on or after January 1, 2017, if the salvage vehicle dealer previously surrendered the original title to the TxDMV.

eTAG maintenance notification (9/28/2016 @ 8:00 PM – 11:59 PM CDT)

Good afternoon,

 

On Wednesday, September 28, 2016, the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) will be performing system maintenance that will not require a system outage.  eTAG users may experience intermittent connectivity issues during the scheduled maintenance window.  The duration of the maintenance is scheduled for up to 4 hours beginning at 8:00 PM CDT and lasting until 11:59 PM CDT (9/28/2016).

 

As a reminder, if you are unable to print buyer's tags, you should use your pre-printed Internet Down buyer’s tags.   As you know, every dealer is now allowed a minimum of 30 Internet Down tags.  If you have less than 30 printed, print your full allocation now so you are prepared when the eTags system is unavailable.  Please remember that after using an Internet Down tag, you must enter the information for that tag into eTags as soon as the system is accessible.  Doing this, will ensure you always have the full allocation of unused Internet Down tags available when you need them. Also remember that unused Internet Down tags are valid for one year from the date they are printed.

 

Note: A reply to all will be sent when the maintenance is complete.  Please contact the Service Desk if you experience system issues after the end of the maintenance.

 

If you would like to speak to a Service Desk representative, please call us at 512-465-4010 or toll free at 1-877-933-2020, option one (1).  The Service Desk is available from 7:00 AM to 5:30 PM CDT, Monday through Friday.  You may also send email to: ServiceDesk@TxDMV.gov

Updated Law Enforcement Identification Number Inspection (Form VTR-68-A)

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) undertook an initiative to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of all title related forms. The Application for Assigned or Reassigned Number (Form VTR-68-A), which is completed by auto theft investigators following inspection of the vehicle identification number, was included in this process. As a result, Form VTR-68-A has been renamed to Law Enforcement Identification Number Inspection and updated to comply with new TxDMV form standards to improve the overall readability of the form.

A sample of the revised Form VTR-68-A is attached for your reference. Existing versions remain acceptable. This form continues to be for law enforcement use only; therefore, the form is not available online. TxDMV requests that law enforcement agencies not make Form VTR-68-A available on external websites that may be accessible to the general public in order to ensure the security of the form.

Thank you,

Jeremiah Kuntz, Director
Vehicle Titles and Registration Division
Texas Department of Motor Vehicles
