Policy Position on Odometer Requirements

The Association urges member jurisdicitons to implement odometer security procedures in compliance with federal law and encourages the jurisdictions to engage in a mutual exchange of information relating to odometer violations. AAMVA supports federal odometer law requirements to strengthen criminal penalties, to broaden disclosure, and to make improvements in standard data collection and the reporting of irregularities. 

AAMVA urges jurisdictions to record the current odometer mileage reading and provide a notation that the recorded mileage reading is actual, not actual, or exceeds mechanical limits.  

Member jurisdictions should process interstate certificate of title transactions supported by information that meets the minimum federal requirements for odometer disclosure.

[Amended 2022]
