Dear Tax Assessor-Collectors:
Attached is a National Motor Vehicle Title Information System/Title Check press release that you may use as is or revise to meet your local needs.
We also posted the Title Check video on our website, which you can view at www.TxDMV.gov or on the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles You Tube Channel, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fe5zlLz_DKc. You are welcome to post a link to the video on your county websites, Facebook pages, and Twitter accounts.
Our radio public service announcements ran in both English and Spanish across the state and will end June 1.
I assume you have also seen the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles news release that was distributed on the May 12 go-live date. If not, do not forget to subscribe to receive our news releases from our new GovDelivery system. Go to https://public.govdelivery.com/accounts/TXDMV/subscriber/new , sign-in using your email address, and check the “News Releases” box to automatically receive press releases at the same time we distribute them to the media.
Thank you for helping us protect Texans by encouraging them to use the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System before they buy a used vehicle. This system is our best tool to help stop title fraud in Texas.
