  • NMVTIS Direct Reporting Service for Junk and Salvage


  • Reporting Service for Recycler, Junk & Salvage, Insurance and Towing Operators

    Auto recyclers, junk yards, salvage yards, insurance companies and towing operators that take possession of junk/salvage vehicles, must submit the required monthly reports to the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) through third party organizations that have agreed to provide this service. Reporting can be as frequently as desired, but not less frequently than monthly. The Department of Justice encourages all reporters to submit information to NMVTIS as soon as possible to prevent fraud and theft and to protect consumers.

    Approaches for states to participate in NMVTIS


    State motor vehicle agencies have a number of options they can choose from to enable them to satisfy the title verification and data reporting requirements of the Anti-Car Theft Act and its implementing regulations:

    VERIFY TITLES

    Integrated Solution

    AAMVA offers states an application solution that will enable a state to integrate NMVTIS title verification into the state's titling application, making it a seamless part of an online title process. If you are looking for documentation or information related to this application, please contact the AAMVA helpdesk at helpdesk@aamva.org or call 1-888-226-8280 option 3.

    Standalone Solution

    Recognizing that implementation of the NMVTIS fully integrated solution, although desirable, may not always satisfy a state's particular needs to a given time, AAMVA also offers other options. There are two options available for a state to verify titles prior to issuance in a standalone manner that do not require integration into state title systems.

    • State Web Single VIN Inquiry
      This application allows a state, via the internet to conduct an inquiry into NMVTIS. If you are looking for documentation or information related to this application, please contact the AAMVA helpdesk at helpdesk@aamva.org or call 1-888-226-8280 option 3. 
    • Batch Inquiry
      This application allows a state to submit a batch of vehicle information numbers (VINs) to NMVTIS of inquiry. If you are looking for documentation or information related to this application, please contact the AAMVA helpdesk at helpdesk@aamva.org or call 1-888-226-8280 option 3.
            

    REPORT STATE DATA

    AAMVA offers states two options to report data to NMVTIS:

    Integrated Solution

    As part of the integrated system application solution in addition to having the ability to incorporate that NMVTIS verification into the title application, this solution also enables a state to update title data to NMVTIS in an online fashion. If you are looking looking for documentation or information related to this application, please contact the helpdesk at helpdesk@aamva.org or call 1-888-226-8280 option 3.

    Standalone Solution

    Recognizing that implementation of the NMVTIS fully integrated solution, although desirable, may not always satisfy a state's particular needs at a given time; as a result, there is an option for a state to report data in a standalone batch upload manner that does not require integration to state title systems. If you are looking for documentation or information related to this application, please contact the AAMVA helpdesk at helpdesk@aamva.org or call 1-888-226-8280 option 3.
