Out-of-state businesses can now license fleets of vehicles in West Virginia using a brand-new West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles’ National Digital Titling Clearinghouse. It is open to national auto retailers, fleet operators, insurance carriers, and salvage vehicle companies from all 50 states.

The clearinghouse is a central location for quick, efficient, and secure title transfers – and the first of its kind in the United States. 

“The launch of the National Digital Titling Clearinghouse represents a major leap forward for West Virginia and will bring millions of dollars into our state while providing significant time and money savings to businesses nationwide,” Gov. Jim Justice said. “It’s not only going to help West Virginia businesses, it will allow West Virginia to benefit businesses outside our state borders in a big way.”

Vehicle companies from all 50 states can now visit to enroll and enroll. Once the process is complete, licensed non-resident businesses will be able to transfer existing out-of-state titles into a West Virginia title in their name. 

The National Digital Titling Clearinghouse will significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to turn a title around, which is a major benefit, as traditional title turnarounds often prevent auto retailers, insurance carriers and fleets from selling a vehicle for months, hurting business productivity and carrying considerable costs.

The West Virginia DMV has received national recognition and a regional award for its efforts in digital titling through the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA). 

At the foundation of West Virginia’s digital titling efforts is a comprehensive vehicle title administration solution that manages titles, registrations, liens and dealer licensing within a completely digital ecosystem, showcasing innovation and technology.
