Electronic Vehicle Registration Program

The Electronic Vehicle Registration (EVR) program allows approved End Users to process registration transactions through an electronic link to the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV). Previously, End Users communicated with the RMV through the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA). Effective with ATLAS Release 2 in 2019, the RMV moved its EVR communications/messaging to a new modern ATLAS-hosted Web Service, and is no longer using AMVA messaging.

RMV data contains Driver’s Privacy Protection Act protected information, so your employees, contractors, and/or agents must have a background check before they can access RMV data. Please refer to Section 11 of the Agreement for Access to Records and Data Maintained by the Registry of Motor Vehicles, which can be found on the Document Section on this site.

Who should use this program information?

This information is intended for EVR Service Providers and EVR Participants. Fees and taxes processed through EVR are transferred from the user's account via Automated Clearing House (ACH), formerly Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), to a designated RMV account.

RMV data is only available to permitted users. Refer to Section 1 of the Agreement for Access to Records and Data Maintained by the Registry of Motor Vehicles, which can be found on the Document Section on this site.

New Regulation - Work and Family Mobility Act (WFMA)
