TO: All Designated Agents and Title Service Providers
SUBJECT: Alabama Title System Document Upload Feature
Effective today, all designated agents and title service providers may begin uploading title
documents to the Alabama Title System (ALTS). Uploading title documents will eliminate
postage costs, eliminate lost documents and reduce title application processing time. Document
upload instructions are included in the ALTS Quick Start Guide located on the Motor Vehicle
Title Registration & Insurance Portal (MVTRIP) at: www.mvtrip.alabama.gov.
In order to upload documents, designated agents and title service providers must comply with
Motor Vehicle Division administrative rule 810-5-75-.42, which requires designated agents and
title service providers to write or stamp the word “SURRENDERED” on the face of the title
document. Additionally, the original title documents must be maintained by the designated agent
or title service provider for one (1) year and then electronically for an additional four (4) years.
Failure to comply with these requirements may result in the revocation of the authority to act as a
designated agent or title service provider.
