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

Chapter 5 – Certificate of Title Requirements
Section 5.7, “Issuance of Title to Government Agency,” was updated to “Issuance of Title to Exempt Entities,” and includes information about nonprofit food banks and their eligibility for exempt registration that includes exemption from registration fees but not the title fee.

Chapter 18 – Out of State Requirements
Section 18.10, “Certificate of Title Information for Each State,” was updated to indicate Rhode Island now issues titles to all model year vehicles, which was effective January 1, 2024.

Chapter 19 – Imported Vehicles
Section 19.2, “Required Documents for All Imported Vehicles,” was updated to remove reference to the Form HS-7 being stamped by customs for evidence of customs clearance since the form has not been stamped by customs since 2016.

Thank you,
