January 2019 Title Manual Revision


The latest update to the Motor Vehicle Title Manual (attached) is now available via Registration and Title System workstations and at www.txdmv.gov.

We welcome your feedback and encourage you to email any comments or suggestions to VTR_Title_Reg-Manual-Update@txdmv.gov (please note the underscores between VTR and Title and between Title and Reg).

Updates for this release are marked with red change bars in the text.

Chapter 6 – Application and Issuance of Motor Vehicle Title
Section 6.5, “Registration Purposes Only (RPO),” was updated to clarify the procedure for correcting a Registration Purposes Only record.

Chapter 8 – Refusal/Denial of Title
Section 8.3, “Bonded Title,” was updated to specify a bonding company is not required to complete the certification statement on the TxDMV rejection letter when a lien is on the motor vehicle record if a separate document with the same certification language is provided. Additionally, a surety bond remains effective for three years from the effective date of the bond, even if the vehicle changes ownership.

Chapter 10 – Evidence of Ownership
Section 10.2, “Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin (MCO),” was updated in accordance with Registration and Title Bulletin #005-18, which specified a new vehicle must be the subject of a first retail sale before a Texas title can be issued. Additionally, new motor vehicles sold in Texas must be sold by a licensed Texas franchise motor vehicle dealer.

Thank you,
