The National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) is a system that allows the titling agency to instantly and reliably verify the information on the paper title with the electronic data from the state that issued the title. NMVTIS is designed to protect consumers from fraud and unsafe vehicles and to keep stolen vehicles from being resold. NMVTIS is also a tool that assists states and law enforcement in deterring and preventing title fraud and other crimes. Consumers can use NMVTIS to access important vehicle history information.

States are among key stakeholders in NMVTIS, providing vehicle data in the system that other states, law enforcement and consumers rely on to make decisions around titling, investigating and buying a vehicle. Through participation in NMVTIS, states help in the fight against fraud and theft, protect consumers from unsafe vehicles, and realize cost-savings along with other benefits.

Alabama is currently working with the NMVTIS Administrator to fully integrate NMVTIS into Alabama’s new electronic titling system (ALTS). Full implementation of the NMVTIS webservice is scheduled for later this year. Once implemented, the NMVTIS history will be accessed prior to the processing of an Alabama title application and again prior to the issuance of an Alabama certificate of title. This NMVTIS integration will provide an additional verification to ensure that Alabama titles are properly issued and that any title brands issued by other states are properly recorded on Alabama certificates of title.
