Please review and distribute as appropriate.

The latest update to the Motor Vehicle Title Manual (attached) is now available via Registration and Title System (RTS) 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 15 – Vehicles Exempt from Disclosure
Section 15.2, “Vehicles Exempt from Disclosure,” and Section 15.4, “Odometer Title Brand,” were updated to specify vehicles with an odometer brand of MILEAGE EXCEEDS MECHANICAL LIMITS or NOT ACTUAL MILEAGE will retain the brand on the motor vehicle record even once the vehicle becomes exempt from odometer disclosure due to programming changes with RTS Release 9.5.

Chapter 25 – Motor Vehicle Dealers
Section 25.8, “Dealer License Number and Buyer Tag Issuance Validations,” was added to provide information on how to process title transactions when the dealer license number or issuance of a buyer tag is not validated in RTS due to programming changes with RTS Release 9.5 and as detailed in Registration and Title Bulletin #011-19.

Thank you,
