Electronic Registration and Title (ERT) Services Providers Vehicle Services
Financial institutions and currency exchanges authorized to sell registration renewal stickers using sticker books are now using the Electronic Registration and Title system. The system will allow the Secretary of State's office to check vehicle emission test compliance during the renewal process before a sticker is issued. The system will expedite the registration process by automatically updating a customer's registration record with the Secretary of State's office and providing a new registration card for the customer at the time of purchase.
The administrative rules authorize agents to increase the fee for this service from $4.75 to $7.50. The Secretary of State does not collect any of this fee and has no authority on how the fee is handled.
To utilize the Electronic Registration and Title system, you must apply with an approved service provider. Financial institutions and currency exchanges will no longer be required to return sticker books to the Secretary of State on a monthly basis, and the Secretary of State will no longer issue sticker books. Agents also will be able to sell stickers for any month. All transactions will be recorded using the software provided through one of the following approved vendors.
