Original Title Programming Enhancement to webSALVAGE

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) is excited to announce a programming enhancement to webSALVAGE that allows original title applications to be submitted electronically to county tax assessor-collectors. This enhancement was implemented with the Registration and Title System (RTS) Release 23.3 as a pilot, but is now available statewide. The original title enhancement is available to insurance companies and salvage pool operator users with access to webSALVAGE.

This enhancement allows electronic submission of original title applications for vehicles which an insurance company has paid a claim and that will be titled in the name of the insurance company. With the deployment of RTS Release 23.4, this enhancement also facilitates titling of unrecovered stolen vehicles for insurance companies. The attached webSALVAGE Original Title Addendum provides further processing details for insurance companies and salvage pool operators and will also be available on our website at www.TxDMV.gov. Transactions submitted through webSALVAGE will be processed in webDEALER by counties.

The TxDMV encourages you to begin using the original title application enhancement in webSALVAGE. If you are not setup to use webSALVAGE, you can easily get started by going to the webSALVAGE login page at https://webdealer.txdmv.gov/title/salvageLogin.do, selecting the “Create New User” button, and following the prompts. Once an account is created, additional users may follow the same steps. The administrator can then add the new users to their account and grant permissions. Additional information can be found in the addendum for salvage pool operators using their general distinguishing number in lieu of a salvage dealer license number.

Prior to submission of original title applications in webSALVAGE, you will need to work directly with the county you plan to submit these applications to for processing. The county will need to add your webSALVAGE account in webDEALER. This includes working with the county to establish a payment method, since payment for these applications will occur outside of webSALVAGE. Additional information can be found in the addendum.

Thank you,

 

Annette Quintero, Director
Vehicle Titles and Registration Division
