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.

RMV Proposed Changes for Non-Dealers and Casual Sales

The RMV is proposing new changes that will create additional opportunities for insurance agents, insurance carriers, and smaller volume dealerships to participate in the EVR program.

These changes are part of the continuing effort by the RMV to minimize in-person interaction to register and title vehicles and will be implemented during the first quarter of 2021.

Registration & Title Application (RTA) and Insurance Certification Policy – Effective January 1, 2023

The RMV's policy* specifies what is acceptable for the completion of a Registration and Title Application. This document also outlines the usage of an Insurance Stamp and a Standalone Insurance Certificate.

*NOTE: Policy was revised on 12/8/2022 to state the Standalone Insurance Certificate is valid for EVR Transactions Only.

RMV Labels and Stickers on Certificates of Title Policy – Effective August 1, 2022

The RMV's policy specifies what is acceptable regarding the application of a sticker or label on a Certificate of Title. Labels or stickers must be affixed along the edge of the Certificate of Title and must not cover or conceal any information in the body of the Title.

NOTE: The RMV has sole discretion whether or not a sticker or label is appropriately affixed to a Certificate of Title or if its removal has in any way affected the fidelity of a Title.

RMV New Electronic Signature Policy

The RMV's policy specifies what is acceptable in the form of an electronic signature for use on RMV and Department of Revenue (DOR) documents associated with the processing of Registration and Title transactions.

RMV Lienholder Code List

The RMV has published a current listing of lienholder codes. Anyone filling out a Registration and Title Application (RTA) for a vehicle that has a lienholder must enter the correct lienholder code and address on the RTA. This will ensure the title and/or electronic record is sent to the correct party once the transaction is processed. Note: The information contained in the listing is accurate as of the date displayed on the bottom of the document.
