Currently, the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) updates lienholder changes on a weekly basis for ELT participating lienholders. However, with the TxDMV modernization initiative, the department will have to change the update schedule from a weekly to a monthly basis.
With the new schedule, requests for name, address, and/or provider changes must be received by the 15th day of the current month in order to be processed in the same month. Changes received by that date will be implemented on the last Thursday of the same month and available the next business day.
Information on the ELT program can be found at http://www.txdmv.gov/lienholders. As a reminder, you can also find a list of certified vendors and lienholders on this page. Please note the onboarding schedule for new lienholders will remain quarterly.
We welcome any feedback you may have regarding these changes. You may contact us at e-titles@TXDMV.gov or (512) 465-4010.
