National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) Brand Check Prior to Temporary Tag Issuance

 

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

With Registration and Title System (RTS) Release 24.2, a NMVTIS brand check will be performed in real-time to check for salvage and nonrepairable-related brands prior to the issuance of temporary tags. Users will continue to follow the same process when issuing or obtaining temporary tags. This programming enhancement supports the department’s continued efforts in detecting and preventing temporary tag fraud.

When the brand check is performed and a salvage or nonrepairable-related brand is identified as the latest brand, users of the systems will receive a message preventing the issuance of the temporary tag. The 24.2 RTS release notes and webDEALER addendum will provide further processing details and specific messages.

RTS Point of Sale (POS)
Counties will be prompted to advise their customer to obtain a NMVTIS title check for information regarding the specific brand(s) found when processing one of the following:
           • 30-Day Permit
           • One-Trip Permit
           • 72-Hour Permit
           • 144-Hour Permit

webPERMIT
Applicants will be prompted to obtain a NMVTIS title check for information regarding the specific brand(s) found when processing one of the following:

eTAG
Dealers and converters will be prompted to obtain a NMVTIS title check for information regarding the specific brand(s) found when processing one of the following:
           • Buyer Tag
           • Vehicle Specific Tag
           • Converter Tag

All vehicles with a salvage or nonrepairable brand are ineligible for registration and may not be issued a temporary tag of any kind. These vehicles are not allowed to operate on the roads. The type of brand found with the NMVTIS check will determine the available options for the permit applicant, dealer or converter. More detailed information regarding NMVTIS brands can be found in our NMVTIS Guide and more detailed information regarding salvage and nonrepairable vehicle processing can be found in the Salvage/Nonrepairable Motor Vehicle Manual located on the department’s website. Information on obtaining a NMVTIS title check is also available on the department’s website at Title Check – Look before you buy | TxDMV.gov.

Programming changes will be implemented to each system in a phased approach spaced a few days apart beginning with RTS POS on Monday May 13, 2024, followed by webPERMIT, then vehicle specific and converter tags in eTAG, and finally buyer tags in eTAG.

Thank you,
