January 2021 NMVTIS Guide Update

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

The latest update to the NMVTIS Guide (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 1 – Overview
Section 1.5, “State Participation,” was updated with a new map to represent the states participating in NMVTIS.

Chapter 3 – Corrections Processing
Section 3.6, “NMVTIS Specially Marked Envelope,” was updated to clarify transactions sent to the NMVTIS Helpdesk only need the error number(s) written in the top right corner of the transaction in lieu of stapling a separate piece of paper to the transaction.

Chapter 5 – Title Brands
This chapter was updated throughout to include the NMVTIS brand code 56, Export Only Vehicle, for salvage and nonrepairable vehicles sold for export only that cannot be titled in Texas.  This brand code was deployed with the RTS Release 9.9.

Section 5.7, “Brand Removal,” was updated to clarify that brands removed by a county tax assessor-collector’s office will have to be removed from NMVTIS by the NMVTIS Helpdesk.


Thank you,


Tim Thompson, Deputy Director
