The National Motor Vehicle Title Infor-
mation System (NMVTIS) is designed
to assist, and provide benefits to state
motor vehicle titling information agen-
cies. By making it an Iowa law, DOT
will have another tool in their belt to
deter vehicle theft and fraud. NMVTIS
provides states with a mechanism to
instantly check all state vehicle title
record systems to verify the accuracy
and legitimacy of title information. This
50-state instant search protects states
from crime and saves
agencies processing time.
It also provides states
with access to insurance,
junk, and salvage infor-
mation reported on vehi-
cles that they may be ti-
tling or have already titled,
as well as other data that
is readily available.
The Iowa NMVTIS bill was also en-
hanced by an affidavit component.
Tied to both the Senate and House
bills passed this legislative session is
a system that will allow the lawful use
of an affidavit in lieu of certificate of
title for salvage vehicles purchased
from the rightful owner.
