NMVTIS

What is NMVTIS?

The National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) is a system that allows an electronic means to verify and exchange titling, brand, and odometer data among motor vehicle administrators, law enforcement officials, prospective purchasers and insurance carriers.

What is the purpose of NMVTIS?

NMVTIS was created to prevent the introduction or reintroduction of stolen motor vehicles into interstate commerce; protect states and consumers (individual and commercial) from fraud; reduce the use of stolen vehicles for illicit purposes including funding of criminal enterprises and provide consumers protection from unsafe vehicles.

Who is responsible for maintaining the NMVTIS information?

NMVTIS is a Department of Justice database maintained by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA).

What information should be included for each vehicle?

Insurance Carriers

  • VIN
  • Date on which the automobile was obtained or designated as a total loss
  • Name of the individual or entity from whom the automobile was obtained (owner name or lien-holder name)
  • Who possessed the automobile when it was designated a total loss
  • Name of the owner of the automobile at the time of the filing of the report with NMVTIS (either the insurance company or the owner, if owner-retained)

Salvage Industry

  • VIN
  • Date on which the automobile was obtained or designated as a total loss
  • Name of the individual or entity from whom the automobile was obtained (owner name or lien-holder name)
  • Who possessed the automobile when it was designated a total loss

What is the official definition of a "salvage" vehicle?

A salvage vehicle is an automobile that is damaged by collision, fire, flood, accident, trespass, or other event, to the extent that its fair salvage value plus the cost of repairing the automobile for legal operation on public streets, roads, and highways would be more than the fair market value of the automobile immediately before the event that caused the damage. Salvage automobiles include automobiles determined to be a total loss under the law of the applicable jurisdiction or designated as a total loss by an insurer under the terms of its policies, regardless of whether or not the ownership of the vehicle is transferred to the insurance carrier.

What is the official definition of a "junk" vehicle?

A junk vehicle is an automobile that is incapable of operating on public streets, roads, and highways and has no value except as a source of parts or scrap.
