October 2020 Title Manual Revisions

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 6 – Application and Issuance of Motor Vehicle Title
Section 6.11, “Revocation Affidavits – First Sale Title Application,” was updated to change the timeframe for a first sale revocation from 21 days to 90 days as provided in Registration and Title Bulletin (RTB) # 011-20. 

Chapter 7 – Corrections
Section 7.9, “Switched Evidence,” was renamed to “Incorrect Evidence Surrendered” and was updated to reflect the procedures a licensed franchised dealer may follow after surrendering the incorrect manufacturer’s certificate of origin resulting in the wrong vehicle being titled as provided in the RTB # 012-20.

Thank you,


Jeremiah Kuntz, Director
Vehicle Titles and Registration Division
