Fundamentals of Used Vehicle Registration & Titling


Overall, the titling and registration process may seem complex: some deals are relatively easy while others require many DMV forms to accurately document the vehicle sale and transfer. Knowing the intricate details of each registration situation is your secret weapon for submitting successful DMV documentation as well as keeping your dealership’s customers happy. REG 201 arms you with the tools you need to process more advanced types of title and registration transactions, including those requiring additional paperwork with specific DMV forms. You'll also get an introduction to the new AB 516 temp tag mandate, which goes into effect January 1, 2019. With step-by-step instructions and examples based on actual transactions, you’ll improve your skills to handle almost anything you might encounter at your dealership.
