                        As the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) database continues to grow, California will be the next state to begin providing data.  Once California is on board, approximately 75% of the United States vehicle population will report to NMVTIS.

 

                        To facilitate the loading of California’s data, NMVTIS will not be available for inquiry or updates beginning Friday, November 7, 2008 at 9:00 p.m. (EST) through Sunday, November 9, 2008 at 9:00 p.m. (EST).  Since this occurs on a weekend, we do not anticipate much impact.  During this time, all title transactions may be processed.  However, agencies will not be able to print a Fast Title. 

 

                        If you have any questions or need further information, please contact your Help Desk Representative.
