eTITLE Training for Tax Assessor-Collectors and Staff

The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) started user acceptance testing on June 17 in preparation for the upcoming eTITLE launch.  eTITLE is a new feature in webDEALER that facilitates the secure electronic transfer of titles between dealers in the wholesale market, making the title transfer process faster and easier than ever before.  With eTITLE, electronic titles can also be released directly to webDEALER by a lienholder participating in the Electronic Lien and Title (ELT) program.

What You Need to Know Now

  • eTITLE transactions will be completed between dealers without the need for physical title documents to be completed and change hands.
  • ELT participants can release titles electronically to webDEALER eliminating issuance of a paper title when a vehicle is traded in.
  • A new electronic title history will be available for review within webDEALER.
  • Applications submitted to your office will contain the new ownership evidence type of Texas eTitle.
  • eTITLE will introduce a new remark, the webDEALER indicator, which can act as a hard stop indicating that the owner has sold a vehicle to a participating dealership. The general distinguishing number of the dealer who has possession of the vehicle will display in the remarks section along with the date of transfer to the dealer.

eTITLE Webinars

To make the transition to eTITLE easier for tax assessor-collectors and their staff, TxDMV will provide webinars on the dates and at the times listed below:

Monday, July 15, 2019, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM CST

The benefits of using eTITLE include:

  • The ability for dealers to create an electronic title from a paper title, or receive an electronic title from a lienholder when a vehicle is traded in and subsequently paid off;
  • Easy electronic wholesale transfer of a vehicle that makes the electronic title immediately available to the dealer upon successful completion of the transaction, without physical paperwork changing hands;
  • Increased visibility into reassignment transactions;
  • Integration with webDEALER;
  • The ability to convert an electronic title to a paper title when necessary;
  • Eliminating the need for a Certified Copy of Texas Title or maintaining a release of lien when the financial institution releases the lien electronically to the dealer; and
  • Faster delivery of titles to inventory.

Repeal of Photographic Traffic Signal Enforcement Systems

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

House Bill 1631, which prohibits the use of photographic traffic signal enforcement systems in Texas, was approved by the 86th Texas Legislature. The bill was effective as of June 2, 2019, when it was signed into law by the governor.

As a result, scofflaw remarks that have been identified as “red light camera” related have been removed from motor vehicle records.

Please be aware that you may continue to see a red light camera remark since registration renewal notices are printed approximately three months in advance. However, this is a reminder not to deny registration or renewal based solely on a red light camera remark.

Thank you,

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

If you have any questions concerning this communication, please contact your local TxDMV Regional Service Center.

House Bill (HB) 1548 – Off-Highway Vehicles

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

HB 1548 enacted by the 86th Legislature provides for the titling and operation of certain off-highway vehicles. The bill was effective June 14, 2019, and requires utility vehicles (UTVs) to be titled and provides limited on-road operation of certain off-highway vehicles if authorized by counties or municipalities and issued a license plate. Off-highway vehicles are defined as UTVs, recreational off-highway vehicles, and all-terrain vehicles.

HB 1548 requires the department to adopt administrative rules for the issuance of a license plate for off-highway vehicles and the associated fee. Programming of the department’s automated systems and the design of a new license plate will also be required.

The department is developing administrative rules and identifying programming changes needed to implement the bill. Until these implementation tasks are accomplished, counties will be unable to title UTVs, and license plates will not be available for issuance to off-highway vehicles.

The department will provide additional communication as rules and programming are complete. If you have any questions, please contact your local Texas Department of Motor Vehicles Regional Service Center.

Thank you,

Jeremiah Kuntz, Director

Temporary Suspension of Motor Carrier Requirements

Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared a limited purpose disaster for certain counties in North Texas affected by storms on June 9, 2019. The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles has responded by temporarily suspending IRP vehicle registration, 72/144-hour temporary registration permits, size and weight restrictions, and oversize/overweight permitting requirements for vehicles and loads associated with activities necessary to facilitate the restoration of electricity in North Texas.

Motor carriers involved in these efforts should print the Governor’s declaration and the TxDMV Waiver Notice and carry both in the vehicle. Both documents are found here under “Take Note”: http://www.txdmv.gov/motor-carriers

If your load is overheight, you may use the “Bid Route” feature in the Texas Permitting and Routing Optimization System (TxPROS) at https://txpros.txdmv.gov/ to route loads safely. Enter your height only and leave all other fields blank to use this feature during this emergency. For information on other restrictions go here: http://www.txdmv.gov/motorcarriers/permit-restrictions.

For a more accurate route than the bid route tool, contact us for routing assistance at 1-800-299-1700, option 2.
