SERIOUS AUTO TITLE PROBLEMS: DMV MADE A MISTAKE ON MY AUTO TITLE! (SEGMENT 4)

The DMV made a mistake on your auto title?  While the DMV may not be quick to acknowledge that they made an error on your title; there is the high possibility that they could've made an error due to the realm of clerical errors and omissions.  Before you march to the DMV demanding a change; read this post first!  In some of my other postings, I've highlighted auto title errors that are usually made by individuals (buyers, sellers, dealers, etc.), however the focus here will be on the DMV making errors on auto titles.  With that in mind, I will address the following matters in this post: Types of errors that the DMV make on auto titles, tips for preventing and spotting DMV errors, actions to take regarding DMV title errors.


TYPES OF ERRORS THAT THE DMV MAKE ON AUTO TITLES

The following are the most frequent errors that the DMV make on auto titles:

  1. Vehicle Data: (Year, Make, Model, Body,VIN)-The VIN is the most common; usually it's typed wrong completely, missing a few digits, one digit, etc.
  2. Odometer Reading
  3. Wrong Garage Jurisdiction-Usually occurs on the registration card with the vehicle in question. Note: this can lead to personal property tax issues, as jurisdictions charge different rates
  4. Wrong Lienholder Code and or Lienholder Address-Lienholders have their own code or ID with DMV, thus when the wrong code is keyed and or the wrong address; this can cause the wrong lienholder to receive the title.



TIPS FOR PREVENTING AND SPOTTING DMV ERRORS

Time is the main tip in preventing and spotting DMV errors is to check your title and or registration before leaving the DMV or when receiving it in the mail.  Doing this immediately is key, because the data is still fresh (same day-a few weeks old) and the DMV will be able to change the information quickly.  However, should you wait to look over your credentials; there could be a delay regarding the need for a correction.

Another act of prevention is to make copies of your title and paperwork beforehand, that way if an error occurs; you can cross-reference it with what DMV has.



ACTIONS TO TAKE REGARDING DMV TITLE ERRORS


What should you do if you believe that the DMV made an error on your auto title?  Regard the following, if there is a DMV related error on your title:

  1. Be sure that the error is DMV's and not your own, the seller's, dealer's, etc.  Note: which is why it is important to keep copies of the title and documentation before submitting it. 
  2. Have available copies/records of available for the error in question.
  3. Be prepared to research the matter through records and paper trails if you don't have the available proof at hand.  Note: this can be very tedious and confusing if you don't know where to start and don't understand the vehicle title process.
  4. It is important to address the error earlier on, rather than later in such cases when you decide to sell the vehicle and you try to get the matter rectified before selling the vehicle (this will hold up your possible transaction with the other party)!!
