Notice to all vehicle owners:
Starting August 16th, for the State of Kansas to be in compliance with federal regulations, the treasurer’s office will no longer be able to title a vehicle without a title. This pertains to those with OUT OF STATE plates on their vehicle or those who may have bought a vehicle with an OUT OF STATE TITLE. In the past, we have issued a temporary courtesy registration for those without a title, we can no longer do that. NMVTIS (National Motor Vehicle Title Information System), was established under the Anti Car Theft Act of 1992 and was reauthorized under the Anti Car Theft Improvements Act of 1996. It is a tool designed to assist state vehicle title agencies, vehicle title investigators, and law enforcement in deterring and preventing vehicle related crimes. It is intended to protect consumers from fraud and unsafe vehicles.
If you are planning to buy or currently are not in possession of your (out of state title) due to financing it, you need to contact your lienholder and have them send the title to the motor vehicle department in which you are intending to title your vehicle.
