The National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) is an electronic system that provides consumers with valuable information about a vehicle’s condition and history. Prior to purchasing a vehicle, NMVTIS allows consumers to find information on the vehicle’s title, most recent odometer reading, brand history, and, in some cases, historical theft data.
Need some information on getting a project vehicle that has been sitting for awhile registered and on the road? This isn’t a government site, but it has a lot of information for dealing with the governments in your State about getting your project registered.
