DC DMV starts electronic filing system, changes MD SIF rules
The DC DMV plans to test its Online Dealer Interface Systems (ODIS) with a single dealer by the end of February and, if it is successful, make the system available to dealers everywhere no later than April. ODIS will allow franchised dealers to register and title new and used vehicles. The system includes titling, registration and inventory control using a new Web-based format.
Using ODIS, dealers will be able to title and register new and used vehicles without visiting DC DMV. The DMV will assign inventory (tags, registration and inspection stickers) to the dealers for them to issue to DC residents.
Because dealers will be able to title and register vehicles and issue paperwork in their offices, concerns about turnaround processing times and DCês three deals per dealerships in-person limit should be eliminated, the DMV says. But as dealers are aware, working with the DC DMV can be difficult.Download Bulletin PDF
