    The National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) is designed to protect consumers from fraud and unsafe vehicles and to keep stolen vehicles from being resold. NMVTIS is also a tool that assists states and law enforcement in deterring and preventing title fraud and other crimes.


    State Titling Agency 

    States are among key stakeholders in NMVTIS, providing vehicle data in the system that other states, law enforcement and consumers rely on to make decisions around titling, investigating and buying a vehicle. Through participation in NMVTIS, states help in the fight against fraud and theft, protect consumers from unsafe vehicles, and realize cost-savings along with other benefits.

    NMVTIS is an electronic system that provides consumers with valuable information about a vehicle's condition and history. Prior to purchasing a vehicle, NMVTIS allows consumers to find information on the vehicle's title, most recent odometer reading, brand history, and, in some cases, historical theft data.

    Junk, Salvage, and Insurance (Total Loss) Entities

    Any business or individual handling five or more junk, salvage or insurance (total loss) vehicles annually, must submit the required monthly reports to the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) through a third party reporting service.  Reporting can be as frequent as desired, but not less frequent than monthly. The Department of Justice (DOJ) encourages submission of information to NMVTIS as soon as possible to prevent fraud and theft and to protect consumers.
