IMPORTANT CHANGES TO NOTE:
CHANGE TO THE PS2000 - EFFECTIVE JAN 1 2016
As of January 1, 2016, the Minnesota DVS is required to collect no-fault insurance information. This applies to applications for title, registration and re-registration (PS2000) which are submitted to the DVS on or after January 1 - regardless of the date of vehicle sale.
Dealers will need to collect and submit the following items:
• the customer's insurance company name
• the customer's insurance policy number
• the customer's policy expiration date
The Application to Title/Register a Vehicle (PS2000) has been changed to accommodate the collection of the required insurance information. Dealers may continue to their existing supply of title applications but need to submit a photocopy of the customer’s vehicle insurance card along with the transfer.
If your customer's insurance policy is pending or if they are self-insured, use the number #999 for the insurance policy number. The title application date can be used as the policy expiration date.
These new requirements apply to self-propelled vehicles, motorcycles, and mopeds. Pull-behind trailers are exempt.
Northland IADA’s goal has always been to make life easier for its member dealers. For years your association has worked with a number of agencies including The Minnesota Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicle Services division to do just that. In fact, our efforts have brought about a number of changes in procedures, laws and regulations; a few of the more recent are listed below.
Title turnaround time was dramatically decreased making it more convenient
for dealers and consumers.
Pro-Rating of Expired Tab save dealers money by not requiring an
annual fee in-full, for expired tabs.
Salvage Titles now protect both dealers and customers from damaged vehicles
they may not have otherwise known about.
Reassignment Forms allow dealers to re-title vehicles when transfer cards no longer
remain on the vehicle’s title.
